Leopards fire Irish coach

Connor has been fired before he even sat on the bench after a protracted wait for the issuing of his work permit.

KickOff.com has it on good authority that assistant coach Ashwin Sutton will now take over as caretaker coach with the assistance of Solly Luvhengo.

Word reaching KickOff.com is that club boss David Thidiela showed Connor the door yesterday as he wasn’t impressed with the Northern Irishman who was recruited in July after a spell with Zimbabwean club CAPS United.

Leopards – who are keen on promotion – have drawn two and lost once in their opening three games.
