Matthew Etherington's spell as manager of struggling League Two club Crawley has lasted only 32 days. The 41-year-old quit his role as Peterborough's Under-23 boss to take up the role on November 27, replacing Kevin Betsy who was sacked in October. The former Tottenham and West Ham midfielder got off to a winning start in his first game in charge but then suffered back-to-back home defeats to Hartlepool and Sutton, the latter featuring a terrible corner routine which attracted much derision on social media. The losses left Crawley 20th in the League Two table and a club statement released on Thursday confirmed Etherington and assistant manager Simon Davies had left their roles with immediate effect. Director of football and interim CEO Chris Galley said: "It has become clear to all involved parties that this partnership is not the right fit to carry the club forward and achieve our goals. "As a result, we have mutually decided to move in a different direction. We wish Matty and Simon well in their future endeavours."
