Morrison, who only took up the post last week, was unhappy with the club’s decision to ask him to review his plans for pre-season training which was to take place in Manchester and following a discussion with the club chairman John McKiernan, he tendered his resignation by email.
Despite a number of attempts to speak in person with the manager, the chairman decided on that it was appropriate that both parties went their separate ways.
McKiernan said: “The club felt it had the right to ask the manager to review his decision to start pre-season training in Manchester, and my conversation on Sunday evening with Lloyd was one which outlined the club’s concerns and echoed some of our discussions at his interview only days earlier.
“The club has already been forced to play outside the Town and we are working closely with St Helens Council with a view to eventually returning to the borough. It was felt that training so far away sent out the wrong message to the public and players.
“Obviously this is not a situation any club can plan for, and we must now work hard to expedite a solution as soon as possible.”
