Club Statement

25 November 2013

SWINDON Town Football Club condemns the actions of the individual who ran on to the pitch and confronted the Leyton Orient goalkeeper during Saturday’s League 1 fixture. 

The Club have indefinitely suspended the individual concerned until the on-going legal process is complete. During this process, the Club will be working closely with Wiltshire Police to decide on the appropriate course of action and to ensure that the maximum penalty available is imposed.

There is no place at The County Ground for so-called supporters who find this sort of behaviour acceptable and the Club would like to remind all supporters that any incident like this has serious consequences not just individually but also for the Club. 

The Club would like to add that this is an isolated incident. The County Ground stadium is one of the safest in the country and we are extremely fortunate, as a Club, to have an impeccable group of supporters whose reputation should not be tarnished by the actions of one individual.
