Swindon Town Ban Local Paper From Games

Swindon Town F.C. have made the bizarre decision to ban the local newspaper, The Swindon Advertiser from all home games as well as pre and post match press conferences.

The Adver is an integral part of the community where fans as well as other media outlets get their stories from, ourselves included.

Many of times we have credited the Adver specifically Sam Morshead the papers head sports writer.

The row and banning is a result of Morshead tweeting that Nile Ranger was back involved with the first team following a U Turn by the club to sack the striker.

Morshead however was not the first to publish this. A fan had tweeted an image of Ranger's shirt in the dressing room as well as Nile Ranger posting an image on Instagram stating 'I'm back', before the teams were announced.

Club chairman Lee Power claims that Peterborough United got wind that Ranger was involved and altered their team because of this.

The decision to ban the local paper who promote the product and keep fans interest in the club going in the week is a shocking own goal which will do nothing but annoy an already sceptical fan base.

Let's be honest. The official club website has been a poor source of information with barely any updates since Chris Tanner left.

We hope that the club re-consider and bring The Adver back on board.

Lee Power said to judge him by his actions, this is a massive public relations own goal and we would ask Mr. Power to reconsider his stance and allow The Swindon Advertiser back into games to allow us fans to have the best coverage possible relating to Swindon Town.
