St Albans City have sacked manager Ritchie Hanlon after a poor start to their Blue Square South campaign.
Hanlon was forced to retire from playing in January 2007 because of a knee injury
Hanlon, 29, was in charge for just 10 league games following his appointment at the end of last season.
Chairman John Gibson said: "I feel sorry for Ritchie. Luck hasn't gone his way with regard to injuries, but this is a results business.
"We hoped results would improve but this was not the case and we had no choice but to part company."
