It is being widely reported Swindon Town head coach Luke Williams has left the club after their relegation to League Two.

The Robins finished 22nd in the League One table and will play in the bottom tier of the Football League next season for the first time since 2012.

Williams was appointed in January 2016 but after a fast start has seen his side's form fall off a cliff this season.

The former Brighton U21 manager won six out of his first ten games in charge but his side suffered a mid season slump this time round.

In a dismal run between December and the end of the season they won just five of 22 games.

The club appointed Tim Sherwood as Director of Football earlier in the season but has been plagued by off-the-field problems.
