Southend United have accepted the resignation of Kevin Bond after a dreadful start to the 2019-20 season.
The Shrimpers have dropped their opening six League One matches and sit in place, for moving into government, with Bolton under them due to their deduction.
Morning chairman Ron Martin met with Bond on Friday and that meeting concluded with all the 62-year-old tendering his resignation.
Bond helped direct Southend on the last day of the 2018-19 campaign to safety and had taken control in Roots Hall in April.
“Kevin is a true expert trainer with enormous expertise in the industry. His achievements in maintaining the club in League One last season has to be acknowledged and will be remembered by the club’s fans,” Martin said.
“Unfortunately the euphoria experienced at the conclusion of this season has not translated to the pitch so far this season.
“However, I remain confident that the players we have at Southend United, for instance, strong signings made by Kevin Bond, will allow a successful year under the guidance of a new manager.
“The hunt for this individual commences today.”
