CHIEF executive Jeremy Butler has today left Tranmere Rovers by mutual agreement. 

His departure comes just one week after the club sacked manager Rob Edwards after they suffered their seventh loss of the season when they were beaten by Plymouth last weekend.

Micky Adams was appointed as new manager on Thursday and watched from the stands as Rovers were defeated by Oxford on Saturday.

Tranmere have won just two of their opening 12 games this season.

Club owner Mark Palios said: “Jeremy took the reins as CEO at Tranmere at a very difficult time of transition for the club and I would like to thank him for all of his hard work, and in particular for his achievement in improving the communication with key stakeholders – something with which we intend to continue.  We wish him all the best for the future.” 

Departing chief executive Jeremy Butler said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed working for this great Football Club despite all the challenges we have faced in my time at Prenton Park. 

“I would like to thank Peter Johnson for giving me the opportunity to come to Tranmere Rovers and Mark and Nicola for their support since they bought the club. I do feel, with their expertise and passion, the club is in good hands. 

“The Club also has an excellent staff working hard behind the scenes to ensure Tranmere Rovers has a bright future and I wish them every success."
