David Miliband has quit his role with Sunderland FC following the appointment of controversial new manager Paolo Di Canio.
Caretaker manager Fabrizio Piccareta announces he, along with the remaining technical staff, are to leave Swindon Town Football Club.
Paolo Di Canio has issued this statement to his local paper, The Swindon Advertiser.
Former Swindon Town manager Paolo Di Canio says there is no chance that he will resume his job at the County Ground. In an interview with Sky Sports News the Italian said it wasn't fair on the fans to speculate that he may one day return.
Swindon Town's Director, Callum Rice, outlines what he sees as the club's future.
The new owners of Swindon Town Football Club have talked about their plans for the Wiltshire club.
It was only last week the deal was approved by the Football League, meaning the club now has the green light to move forward.
Chairman Jed McCrory says the aim is to 'get promotion and keep going forward':
The new owners of Swindon Town Football Club will be speaking for the first time today.
They're holding a press conference to announce their plans for the club. One of the first jobs will be to appoint a new manager following Paolo Di Canio's resignation last week.
Darren Ward and Tommy Miller have been appointed caretaker managers at Swindon Town to oversee preparation for the game against Preston North End on Saturday. Former manager Paolo Di Canio left the club on Monday, followed by assistant manager Fabrizio Picaretta.
The Club was sold today, and some board members have been replaced including chairman Sir William Patey. The new chairman is Jed McCrory. In a statement on their website, the new board say they are now looking for a 'top class' manager to replace Di Canio.
Outgoing Swindon Town chairman Sir William Patey has issued this frank statement as the club is sold to Seebeck 87 Ltd. It follows the departure of manager Paolo Di Canio, who 'walked out on the Club, its players and its fans', according to Sir William.

Andrew Black and the outgoing board leave Swindon as leaders of League One, with a good chance of back to back promotions to the Championship. The quality of our squad is the legacy of the very considerable investment that has been made....We have comprehensively accomplished Andrew's key objective of passing the Club onto the new owners in a good state of health.
Despite the manager walking out on the Club, its players and its fans before a vital game, Tuesday night saw a wonderful performance from the team under incredibly difficult circumstances.
Swindon Town Football Club has been sold to Seebeck 87 Ltd, which now has 99% of the club's shares. The new club board will be chaired by Jed McCrory, head of a consortium which backs Seebeck 87.
Chairman Sir William Patey, Andrew Black and Russell Backhouse have stepped down from the board. The new board retains Nick Watkins and will include new members Gary Hooper, Steve Murrall and Callum Rice.
Following last night's 3-1 win away at Tranmere, Caretaker Manager Fabrizio Piccareta announced he along with the remaining technical staff, will resign from their posts at Swindon Town Football Club. Speaking after the 1-3 win Fabrizio said:
– Caretaker Manager, Fabrizio Piccareta
After this game that everyone has witnessed I want to tell you that this is our last game as the technical staff of Swindon Town Football Club. We know what Paolo did yesterday and I want to highlight one thing: this achievement that this fantastic team got tonight to get to the top of the league with this victory - the people must know that until yesterday until 5pm we were together preparing for this game as usual, preparing this game in the best professional way. I want to stress this point.
