Mark Kinsella has left his role as assistant manager, following Joe Dunne's exit from his role as U's boss this morning.

Kinsella, a former U's and Republic of Ireland midfielder, was appointed as Dunne's number two in September 2012.

He worked alongside Dunne for nearly two years but has now left the club, possibly paving the way for a new management team to come in.
