Sources: Jewell set to leave Swindon Town

Paul Jewell is set to leave Swindon Town, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.

The former Wigan Athletic and Ipswich Town manager has been the director of football at Swindon since December 2018.

But an industry source has told Football Insider that Jewell, 56, is leaving his role at the League Two club after two-and-a-half years.

This comes two months following Swindon’s relegation from League One at the end of a season of underachievement.

Jewell’s impending departure is set to be the latest in a number of big-name exits at The County Ground.

Swindon announced on Friday (June 25th) manager John McGreal and assistant manager Rene Gilmartin had agreed to leave the club by mutual consent.

The former Colchester boss was only appointed as John Sheridan’s replacement at the end of May.

Meanwhile, Gilmartin had joined as McGreal’s assistant at the start of June.

In a statement, the pair stated legal proceedings over the club’s ownership had made their position untenable.

Meanwhile, Swindon also revealed on Friday that chief executive Steve Anderson had left the club after nearly eight years in the post.

It is expected Jewell will be the next to leave the County Ground after nearly three years at the club.

The former Wigan Athletic, Derby County and Ipswich boss joined midway through the 2018/19 season as Swindon finished 13th.

The Robins were promoted as League Two champions after the 2019/20 season was cut short due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

However, the club finished 23rd in League One last term to drop back into the fourth tier of English football.
