Club Statement

14 January 2014

THE Club's actions to place an embargo on the Swindon Advertiser was as a result of a series of issues with the newspaper of which the Nile Ranger incident was the most recent.

The restriction on the Swindon Advertiser covering fixtures is in effect for home matches only, the first of which is at the end of this month. 

The Club feels it has acted in the best interests of Swindon Town and its supporters. 

However, the Club acknowledges that supporters do need a conduit and, as such, confirm that they will be meeting with Gary Lawrence, the Group Editor of the Swindon Advertiser on Monday to resolve our differences and to rebuild trust between both parties.

The Club would like to reiterate that this decision has been made with supporters in mind and would like to thank all supporters for their continued backing.
