Maurice is out! 

Malpas and Swindon Town FC part company
 
Maurice Malpas
Hands up:
Maurice Malpas
Swindon Town have drawn a line under the management of Maurice Malpas.

Chairman Andrew Fitton announced at a County Ground press conference today that the club and Malpas had decided to end his 10 month tenure by mutual agreement. 
 
A decision Fitton described as one he made with ‘deep regret’.
 
"It was the Histon result in the FA Cup that really got me thinking," commented Fitton, "but it was still a very, very tough decision."

And now, with Malpas on the way out, the club are keen to focus on the job of recruiting the right man to take charge. The club's 9th manager in the last 8 seasons.

The chairman, speaking to SwindonWebTV, keen to emphasise that no decision on the identity of the new manager has been taken despite speculation linking the club with Ian Dowie and Ian Holloway.
 
Dave Byrne

At training this morning it was decided Dave Byrne would take temporary control ahead of tomorrow’s big game at home to table-topping Leicester.

And with final preparations now in place for the game, it remains to be seen whether a change in manager will mean a change in fortune.

But only time - and results - will tell.
