Matamata Swifts AFC is pleased to announce that Paul Richardson has been appointed to coach the Waikato Stud Matamata Swifts on a permanent basis.

Richardson is currently the Swifts’ interim head coach and also coach of the Richardson Racing Stables Swifts Reserves.

This appointment allows Paul, along with the club’s current and potential players, to head into the off-season with a sense of certainty about what lies ahead.

In conjunction with the club’s management committee, Paul will appoint his assistants as well as the Swifts Reserves’ coaching staff. Announcements on these positions will be made in due course.

We’d like to congratulate Paul on his appointment and wish him well for his new challenge.
