Swindon Town have strengthened off the field this summer as well as on with two key appointments.
Ray Murphy has joined as the Reds’ New Club Secretary and he brings a wealth of experience to the role.
Previously with Eastleigh, Ray worked with the Spitfires since 2005 following spells with Bashley and Winchester City, earning the nickname ‘Mr. Unflappable’ due to his calm and professional manner.
Speaking about the appointment, Town’s Chief Executive Steve Anderson said: “I am delighted to have someone with Ray’s considerable experience at the Football Club.
“When Ray applied for the role we were contacted by ex-Swindon striker Lee Peacock, and he gave us a glowing reference with the two having worked together at Eastleigh.
“We knew then that Ray was the perfect choice to become our New Football Secretary.”
Town are also delighted to confirm the arrival of Mark Isaacs as the club’s new Chief Operating Officer following a company restructure, which has seen Steve Anderson fill the new Chief Executive role and Deborah Carney being named as the club’s new Chief Financial Officer.
Mark returns to The County Ground on a full-time basis following three years away, having previously held the position of Operations Manager for five years, although he has continued to head up the Match Day Safety Officers over the past couple of years.
Steve Anderson added: “I was delighted that Mark took up my offer of the new role to become part of the team here at Swindon Town.
“Mark brings a wealth of operational experience back to the football club and and I look forward to being supported by Mark for the coming season and beyond.”
