The Swans say Guy McKilligin and Lee Kennedy will join Paine’s management team as first-team coaches. Both have been involved at the club for some time and will bring some welcome continuity at this time of change.

To complete the management team at the club Matt Nelmes will take charge of the reserve team and will be assisted by Andrew Philpott.

“He will be a first-class addition to the management team at the club.

“I am very pleased my management team is now complete with Tom, Guy and Lee joining my first-team set-up and Matt and Andrew taking charge of the reserves.

“I look forward to working with my new team once we are able to get started and we look forward to an enjoyable season.”
