Ellison and his staff were informed of the decision in the wake of their 2-1 defeat to local rivals Bootle on Bank Holiday Monday.

 

The Purps have lost their opening four league fixtures and sit bottom of the table.

 

Ellison has been with City of Liverpool since October 2020, having arrived following his departure from league rivals Runcorn Linnets.

 

A club statement reads: “It is with regret that the Board of Directors of COLFC have this evening discussed the current situation and decided that we have no choice but to relieve Michael Ellison and staff of their managerial duties.

 

“We go on record as to the hard work Ello and the team have put in, in creating possibly the best squad we’ve ever had and in difficult previous Covid-affected seasons.

 

“However, football is a results-based game of course and in a season where four clubs can be relegated from what is an exceptionally tough division, we simply cannot afford to be cut further adrift at the bottom.

 

“We wish Michael all the best in the future and are sure he’ll be back in the game soon”.
