It is with huge regret that we announcement the resignation of Paul Richardson as head coach of Comag Matamata Swifts.

This decision is effective immediately.

Paul took over the team at the tail-end of the 2015 season and helped avoid relegation from the WaiBOP Premiership. The following two seasons saw the Swifts performing at the right end of the table, with a third place finish in 2016 followed by second in 2017.

We’d like to thank Paul for the time, effort and commitment he put into this role and wish him all the best for the future.

Scott Parsonage will assist with training in the short-term while the club assesses its options. All Swifts 1st and reserve team players are requested to meet at the Matamata Domain at 6.30pm for a short meeting on Tuesday prior to training.
