A quartet of assistants have left Swansea City after new manager Russell Martin finalised his backroom staff at the club.
The 35-year-old was confirmed as the Swans new manager, succeeding Steve Cooper, last weekend.
He has brought in five new staff with him:

- Ben Parker (Analyst)
In addition, Alan Tate has remained on the staff as first-team coach.
- Mike Marsh (Assistant)
- Martyn Margetson (Goalkeeper Coach)
- Steve Rands (Head of Performance Analysis)
- David Tivey (Fitness Coach)
Marsh and Tivey were part of the England set-up that won the Under-17 World Cup along with Cooper in 2017.
Margetson has been with the club since June 2019 and is also the England senior team’s goalkeeper coach.
Rands also joined the club in the summer of 2019. He previously worked for Manchester City for seven years, during which time they won three Premier League titles.
