SAINTS have sacked manager Mark Hughes after less than a year in charge.

The Welshman learned his fate this morning after arriving at Staplewood.

During his short tenure, Hughes helped Saints to eight points in eight games at the end of the campaign to stave off the threat of Premier League relegation.

But he leaves Saints this season having won just once in 14 matches, and with the team in the bottom three.

We take a look back at his time at the club in pictures.
