Relegated Sky Bet League One outfit Swindon Town are looking for a new manager with news that Luke Williams’ reign at The County Ground has come to an end according to BBC Sport.

The 36-year-old Londoner was appointed Robins boss in January 2016 but has endured a nightmare time in charge of the club with Swindon Town finishing 22nd in this season’s Sky Bet League One.

It is understood that Williams has met with Town owner Lee Power earlier this week to discuss his long term future with the Wiltshire club and it has been mutually agreed that the former Brighton & Hove Albion academy boss steps down from his position with immediate effect.

After winning six of his 10 matches in charge of Swindon Town in an interim role, the club handed Williams a five-year contract in March 2016 however a disastrous 2016/2017 campaign has seen the club win just 11 of their 46 league matches and accrue just 44 points as they have slipped back into English football’s fourth tier.

Williams has won just 20 of his 75 matches in charge of Town, recording a win rate of just 26.7% while he has lost 33 games.

The Robins are now expected to begin the search for a new boss although a swift appointment may be unlikely with the club having around eight weeks to make a decision before the start of pre-season training.
