Norwich City first team coach Mark Robson has left the club after his contract was terminated with immediate effect.

City released an official statement on Monday morning confirming Robson's departure from Neil Adams' backroom staff. Fellow first team coach Gary Holt will remain part of Adams' inner circle.

The statement read: 'City can confirm first team coach Mark Robson's contract has been terminated with immediate effect. The club would like to thank Mark for his work on behalf of Norwich City and wish him well for the future. First team coach Gary Holt will continue to assist manager Neil Adams and there will be no further comment from the club at this time.'

Robson joined the Canaries in October 2013 to work with the club's development squad before stepping up to assist Adams at the end of last season following Chris Hughton's departure.

The former Barnet manager had worked with the FA and Charlton at youth level prior to moving to Carrow Road after a playing career that included spells at West Ham and Charlton. Robson's departure is the second reshuffle to Adams' backroom staff this season after Joe Royle left his football consultant role in the summer to return to Everton.

Robson's exit comes in the wake of Norwich's 2-1 Championship defeat at Nottingham Forest which prolonged a run of two wins in their last 10 league games. Norwich went into the current international break lying 10th in the table.
