Swallows FC have parted ways with head coach Brandon Truter and his entire backroom staff with immediate effect, the club confirmed on Sunday evening.

The Dube Birds struggled to garner any form under Truter this season, having only tasted victory once in 12 matches in the league.

Truter, who guided the outfit from the GladAfrica Championship to top-flight football, served a "special leave" in September after the club looked to reignite their campaign.

However, since the Cape Town-born mentor returned to the dugout, things have gone from bad to worse as results remain football's best commodity.

Swallows confirmed that Truter's entire backroom staff have also been axed and will announce interim changes as soon as possible.

Full Swallows statement:

The Management of Swallows FC held an emergency meeting with the Coaching staff this evening.

After receiving a report from the Coaching staff, management was further convinced that something drastically need to happen.

With the team at the rock bottom of the DSTV Premiership, management has resolved that the entire Coaching Staff should not report for duty with immediate effect.

An interim arrangement will be announced soon.
