CT Spurs Part Ways With Coach After 6-1 Loss

Cape Town Spurs have parted ways with head coach Dylan Deane after the 6-1 loss at the hands of Pretoria Callies on Sunday.

The Mother City outfit suffered their third defeat of the GladAfrica Championship season in humiliating fashion, which left the side second from bottom.

As a result, Spurs have now decided part ways with Deane who took over in April earlier this year.

Statement:

Cape Town Spurs and Dylan Deane have today ended their working relationship with immediate effect.

Deane was appointed as head coach of the club in April this year and subsequently led the Urban Warriors to safety with a 2-1 win over AmaTuks on the final day of the 2020/21 season.

At the start of the current campaign, Spurs reiterated their desire to return to South Africa’s top-flight and bolstered the squad with a string of new signings.

But, results have failed to be forthcoming and Spurs currently occupy 15th spot on the 2021/22 GladAfrica Championship standings after eight rounds of fixtures; having won just once all season.

“Dylan has enhanced the energy at Ikamva and brought renewed confidence to the club, but unfortunately we’ve been unable to turn the ‘feel good factor’ into wins.”

“We thank Dylan for his commitment to the club, not only over the last few months, but over the last few years and wish him all the best,” said Cape Town Spurs CEO Alexi Efstathiou.

The Urban Warriors will announce Deane’s replacement in due course.
