Cape Town Spurs Settle On Taylor As New Head Coach

GladAfrica Championship side Cape Town Spurs have confirmed the appointment of Ian Tylor as their new head coach.

The former Cape Town All Stars manager takes over the reins after Serbian gaffer Vladislav Heric was sacked after contracting the coronavirus.

Taylor worked as an assistant to Vladislac Heric, a position that he also held before at Ikamva where he served under the watch of Eric Tinkler and later Benni McCarthy.

Taylor’s appointment is not the only change that has been made by Spurs as they have named Cape football legend Nathan Paulse as his assistant.

Paulse enjoyed a distinguished playing career that took him to Sweden where he turned for Hammarby IF. He is best remembered for the time he spent at Ajax Cape Town and famously scored the winning goal in the 2015 MTN8 final win over Kaizer Chiefs.

“The main objective is to get the structure and organization right in the team – trying to get the balance right, and at the same time, trying to get the results,” said Taylor following his announcement as head coach on Tuesday.

“We’re taking it one game at a time and trying not to get too far ahead of ourselves. It’s a matter of playing out of our organizational structures basically – and working on elements of conditioning and scoring, which we’re lacking.”

Previously, the 44-year-old served as the Head of Talent Development at Chinese Super League club, Guangzhou R&F who signed a partnership agreement with Ajax Amsterdam that year.

Spurs are currently in 15th place and 10 points off league leaders Sekhukhune after 12 games played in the GladAfrica Championship this season.

They return to action away to Baroka FC in a Nedbank Cup last-32 tie on Monday before hosting Sekhukhune United in a league fixture five days later.
