Kerr, who led Gor to the 2017 Kenyan league title replaces Brandon Truter, and his entire technical team who were relieved of their duties on Sunday following a 3-1 defeat to Soweto rivals Kaizer Chiefs, home of Kenyan international Anthony Akumu Agay.

Formee Gor Mahia Head Coach Dylan Kerr is on the move again, this time taking over the reins at struggling South African Premier League side, Moroka Swallows.

Kerr, who led Gor to the 2017 Kenyan league title replaces Brandon Truter, and his entire technical team who were relieved of their duties on Sunday following a 3-1 defeat to Soweto rivals Kaizer Chiefs, home of Kenyan international Anthony Akumu Agay.

Kerr takes over a Swallows outfit that sits rock bottom in the Premiership standings, having won once in 12 matches this season.

Prior to taking up the Swallows job, Kerr was in charge of another South African side, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila.  He had previously coached Black Leopards and Baroka in the South African top division after leaving Gor, and Tanzanian giants Simba between 2014 and 2016.

He is seen as a miracle worker in South Africa, having moved Black Leopards and Baroka FC away from the relegation zone in previous campaigns while also helping Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila beat the drop and win the Nedbank Cup last season.

Kerr's first game as Swallows head coach will be against Maritzburg United on Saturday, where the Soweto club will be looking to snap a three-match losing streak.
