Heybridge Swifts have today parted company with manager Cliff Akurang.

Swifts have got off to a slow start under Akurang’s command in the Ryman North Division this season, sitting in 20th position with just one win and four points to their name.

Mark Ashford, assisted by Gavin Dawes, will take temporary charge of the Essex club who entertain 10th-placed Great Wakering Rovers this evening (7.45pm kick-off).
