Hall of Fame: King & Calderwood

1 November 2012

AHEAD of the Capital One Cup clash with Aston Villa on Tuesday, two more Swindon Town legends were inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Phil King and Colin Calderwood were given a warm reception from the capacity crowd at The County Ground as they were presented with their Hall of Fame ties on the pitch by Chief Executive Nick Watkins.

Calderwood served the club for eight years as captain during one of the most successful periods in the club’s history, as Swindon rose from Division Four right up to the Premier League. The Scotsman moved into coaching at the culmination of his playing career and after spells in management with Nottingham Forest and Northampton Town, he is currently assistant to Norwich City manager Chris Hughton. 

Phil King is a familiar figure to supporters on matchdays at The County Ground as the host of the matchday hospitality suites. Signed from Torquay United in 1987, King played under both Lou Macari and Ossie Ardiles before going on to play in the top flight for Sheffield Wednesday and Aston Villa. As well as his work for the club as a host, King can be found running The Dolphin pub in Rodbourne.
