Sir William Patey Named Swindon Chairman

The Directors of STFC are delighted to announce the appointment of Sir William Patey as non-executive Chairman*.

'Sir William is a lifelong football fan and, having served as British Ambassador to, amongst others, Afghanistan, Iraq and Saudi Arabia brings a wealth of experience to the Swindon board.

'Sir William commented: 'I am delighted to become Chairman of Swindon Town at such an exciting time. I look forward to working with Paolo, the Board and the whole Club so that success on the pitch can continue and take the Club back to the npower Championship.

"'In addition, my task will be to secure new investment to support the programme of ground redevelopment and to co-ordinate the execution of the Club`s longer term strategic plans.

''I look forward to working with those who share the same ambitions for the Club both on and off the field and relish the opportunity to take on this challenge.

''The Club has achieved much under the Chairmanship of Jeremy Wray and on behalf of the Board and investor base would like to thank him for his efforts over the course of the last 18 months."

Jeremy Wray, after careful consideration, has taken the decision to resign from the STFC Board with immediate effect.

Regretting this decision, the Board would like to place on record its thanks for Jeremy`s invaluable contribution to the club since his initial involvement in January 2008 and justly proud of his achievements since assuming the role of Chairman in May 2011.
