Swindon Town Football Club were saddened to hear that Reverend Simon Stevenette was taken ill last week.


Reverend Stevenette, who is Club Chaplain and a lifelong fan of the Robins, is currently recovering in the Great Western Hospital after being admitted with a serious infection on Monday 5th September.


Town Head Coach Luke Williams and First-Team Coach Ross Embleton paid a visit to the Reverend on Monday night and were delighted to see him in good spirits.


Reverend Stevenette is expected to make a full recovery and has asked the club to release the following statement on his behalf.


“I was admitted to hospital with a serious infection on Monday 5th September. I am wearing the Swindon Town shirt given to me as part of the Football Fans in Training course.


“This inspires me although I’m going through a very traumatic time, and not being able to run or play tennis for a while.


“I am being looked after well at the Great Western Hospital. I am looking forward to Luke and Ross visiting me this evening (Monday) and I would like to thank them especially.”


On behalf of everyone at Swindon Town Football Club, we would like to wish Reverend Simon Stevenette a speedy recovery and we hope to see you at The County Ground soon.
