Wexford have parted company with manager Brian O'Sullivan ahead of Friday night's SSE Airtricity League First Division clash at Galway.

The Ferrycarrig Park side are currently rock-bottom in the table after opening their campaign with seven defeats from seven games. Wexford were beaten 5-0 by Cork City on Friday night.

A statement from the club on Monday confirmed O'Sullivan's departure, stating: "Wexford FC wishes to advise that first team manager Brian O'Sullivan has left the club by mutual consent.

"We would like to place on record our gratitude for Brian's hard work and commitment to the club over the last two and a half years or so, and wish him every success in the future.

"For the moment, the first team will be managed by the coaching staff within the club. The process to appoint a permanent replacement starts straight away."
