Sinnott parts company with Vale

Lee Sinnott
Sinnott has seen his Port Vale side win just twice in League Two this season

Manager Lee Sinnott has parted company with Port Vale after less than a year in charge, reports BBC Radio Stoke.

Sinnott was appointed manager at Vale Park in November 2007 but failed to stop the Valiants from being relegated from League One.

Vale have since suffered a poor start to this season, losing three of their opening four home games, including a 4-1 defeat to Macclesfield on Saturday.

Sinnott's assistant Dean Glover is set to be placed in temporary charge.


Glover first took over the management duties as caretaker boss last November before Sinnott was appointed.

Sinnott left his position as Farsley Celtic manager and subsequently took up the post at Vale Park.
