Swindon Town part ways with Luke Williams

Luke Williams has become the 51st managerial casualty of the 2016/17 season after parting ways with relegated Swindon Town.

The decision comes after the club lost their League One status last month.

Williams was placed in caretaker charge back in December 2015, which was in turn made permanent three months later after he penned a whopping five-year contract.

Swindon struggled out of the blocks this season, so in November Tim Sherwood, a pal of Swindon chairman Lee Power, ventured over to the club in a “director of football” capacity, in a move that was heavily publicised.

But, while Williams remained the club’s head coach, Sherwood was responsible for trasnfers, formations and team selections…

However, former Tottenham and Aston Villa boss performed a disappearing act that even Jonathan Creek couldn’t crack, and Swindon were relegated after a 2-1 defeat to Scunthorpe in their penultimate game of the season.

But, while the BBC and other news outlets have reported the sacking, Swindon have so far refused to comment, which comes after they refused to admit that they’d been relegated…

Williams leaves with just a 26.7% win percentage after registering only 20 victories from 75 matches.

The Next Swindon Town Manager is not yet available but the odds will appear on the link when bookmakers release them.
