Swindon Town Football Club can now make public the minutes from the fifth Advisory Board meeting, which was hosted at The County Ground earlier this month.
Attended by Swindon Town Owner Clem Morfuni, Don Rogers, Rob Angus, Zav Austin, Eddie Parladorio, Steve Mytton who represented TrustSTFC and Anthony Reeves who was present on behalf of the Official Swindon Town Supporters Club, a number of key points were discussed, including:
- Season Ticket Holders who waived their refunds back in the summer will be featured on a permanent ‘Thank You’ Plaque that will be put on the Stadium walls, while each Season Ticket Holder will be gifted a commemorative pin.
- There is a gap on valuations for The County Ground purchase and more work will be needed to come to an agreement, so a decision has been moved to the Swindon Borough Council March Cabinet Meeting.
- It was revealed that the club had been awarded a fee in the region of £300k in the Scott Twine Tribunal, plus a 20% sell-on fee. £150k will be due in March, and there are also additional add-ons when it comes to appearances.
- Overall debts are now at £2.3 million with £1.5 million due over the remainder of the year. Cashflow is currently strong at £500k.
- It is estimated that the club earned around £300-£400k from the Manchester City game, but CEO Rob Angus will provide a full breakdown at the next Advisory Board Meeting.

The sole purpose of the STFC Advisory Board is to meet monthly to review and assess the performance and strategic direction of Swindon Town Football Club, and to ensure that there is open, transparent and regular engagement on key matters impacting all aspects of the club.
It also builds on the Memorandum of Understanding that was recently signed between Swindon Town and TrustSTFC, and it continues the commitment from the Football Club to maintain open and transparent engagement with its fanbase.
The STFC Advisory Board will meet every month with the next meeting set for Tuesday 1st February 2022, and there is an opportunity for fans to raise any questions they have via TrustSTFC and the Supporters Club.
The Advisory Board meetings present an ideal opportunity for fans to put across their feedback, ideas and suggestions to the club’s management team, so we encourage all supporters to get in touch with either of the Supporter Groups.
If you have questions relating to off-the-field and business matters, please contact email@example.com, and please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for fan engagement matters.
There will be a section devoted to the Advisory Board on the official Swindon Town Website, where documents and minutes from every meeting will be published for fans to read.
