Dungannon Swifts have parted company with manager Kris Lindsay by mutual consent.
 
The former Portadown, Linfield and Glenavon defender leaves Stangmore Park after almost two years five months in charge of the Danske Bank Premiership side, his first managerial role after making the step up from the role of first team coach at Glenavon.
 
Swifts chairman Keith Boyd paid a glowing tribute to the 37-year-old on the official club website.
 
"Kris has been a pleasure to work with over the last couple of years. I’m disappointed it hasn’t worked out with him for the long term with Dungannon Swifts," he said.
 
"I’ve made a friend in football with Kris and we would welcome him back to Stangmore Park at any time. I wish him well for the future."
 
Lindsay will be replaced on an interim basis by current Head of Youth Development at the club, Dixie Robinson. Currently bottom of the table, the Swifts are away to fellow strugglers Portadown on Saturday.
