Bill Power Departs Swindon Town

Bill Power Departs Swindon Town

Recent Investor Bill Power has decided to leave Swindon Town Football Club.

Here is the official Statement on Bill Power`s departure from Swindon Football Club from the official Website http://www.swindontownfc.co.uk

The Club has learnt today that Bill Power, due to the severity of the injuries that he sustained in the 5th. August air crash, will not be able fulfil his role at The County Ground as he originally intended.

Phil Emmel, Bill's business partner, informed the Directors of STFC at a meeting that, whilst it is hoped that Bill will make a full recovery in the long-term, it is likely that he will be sidelined for up to eighteen months consequently he will not be taking an active role in the Club nor will take up his position on the Board of STFC.

Speaking on behalf of the Club Bob Holt said that whilst the announcement was a great disappointment, it was not entirely unexpected.

"We recently received an email from Terry, Bill's wife, informing the Board that Bill was not in any condition to have visitors other than close friends and family and that he was in no position to contribute to the running of the Club," said Holt, adding that it was then we realised that his return to The County Ground seemed unlikely.

On behalf of the Board Holt stressed that the Directors respect Bill's decision and recognise that his long-term return to good health must be a priority and do appreciate both Bill and business partner Phil's contributions over recent months, whilst wishing Bill well with his recovery.

I think there is more to this than meets the eye - watch this space - low and behold - he re-emerges at QPR !!!!! Its his investment or another investor we need. Still 'hey ho - **** happens' life goes on, we have been in worse situations.
