Sean McCarthy and scouts David Hamilton and Mark Seagraves exit Blues

Sean McCarthy has left the Club by mutual consent as Mick McCarthy makes changes to his backroom staff. 

The former Oldham striker joined Blues as a coach under Paul Jewell’s managership, arriving at Portman Road in January 2011.

“Sean has been brilliant for me and Terry [Connor] since we’ve been here and helped us settle in but I don’t need another coach – and I also want to bring my own staff in as well – so Sean has left the Club,” Town boss Mick told the Club website.

“He is a football man, he understands how it works. There is no animosity at all in his departure and he goes with my best wishes for the future.”

Sean added:  “Ipswich is a great club and it’s been an honour to work here.

“When you work in football though, you know there will inevitably be changes when a new manager comes in. That’s part of the game.

“I have enjoyed working with Mick over the last few weeks. He has been first class with me and I hope he can turn things around here. I wish everyone at the Club the best of luck.”  

Also leaving the backroom staff at Town are scouts David Hamilton and Mark Seagraves, who both worked under Paul Jewell. 

Ian Evans and Dave Bowman, who have worked with Mick for many years, are set to join Steve McCall as the new look scouting set-up.
