'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Sir William Patey: Plan Still In Place

When news that Jeremy Wray was being replaced by chairman of Swindon Town FC broke, the internet went into meltdown. Fans were rife with speculation, was there a boardroom rift? Was Paolo Di Canio about to follow Wray? Were the money men pulling out? As it happens, none of that happened and it`s more or less as you were.

Sir William Patey told STFC Player yesterday, "There is a three-year plan at this football club. Of course if it is achievable in two years then that is fantastic but the plan is there for three years."

Sir William Patey also explained that his job was to realise the commercial potential at the club and help get new investment on board. Wray previously had been dedicated to overseeing the footballing side and it appears that Andrew Black who currently bank roles the club wanted someone on board who could realise the dream of making the club self sufficient with the ground redevelopment and other commercial ventures.

Sir William Patey has a previous background history in football, having been a player for a local amateur side into his 40`s as well as supporting, Hibernian and Queens Park Rangers.

The new chairman explained that the plan remains the same and that the board want a successful business and to get a successful business you need to be successful on the pitch which in turn brings more money into the club.
