Former Dewsbury Rams head coach Glenn Morrison has branded Neil Kelly’s decision to sack Jonathan Schofield and Karl Pryce as assistant coaches of Dewsbury as “disgraceful”.
Kelly took charge of the Rams just over two weeks ago and made both Schofield and Pryce aware on Sunday evening that their time at the club was over. The pair had taken charge of the Rams on an interim basis after Morrison left last month.
Schofield said on social media that he was “disappointed” with the decision and also added that he, “enjoyed his time coaching at the club and appreciates the opportunity given by Glenn Morrison.”
Morrison responded to the news on social media, saying: “Disgraceful decision. You have worked your butt off for the last three years and always had the club at heart.”
Karl Pryce also expressed his thoughts by saying: “So my four and half years at Dewsbury has come to an end. Met some fantastic people along the way and played with some top blokes. Sad to leave but that’s sport.”
Kelly has defended his decision to let them go as he looks to move Dewsbury up the league table.
He said: “They have done a good job, the club is grateful to them but there’s some things I need to do and I feel I need to bring my own staff in.”
