ERNIE HUNT: 1943-2018

Remembering Ernie Hunt

21 June 2018

Swindon Town Football Club are extremely saddened to learn that club legend Ernie Hunt has passed away at the age of 75.

Hunt became the club's youngest ever player at 16 years and 182 days when he made his debut during the 1959/60 season, a record he held until 1980.

He was a goalscoring sensation, finishing as Town's top scorer for four consecutive seasons between 1961 and 1964, also having the honour of scoring the club's first-ever goal in Division Two.

Also representing England at U23 level, Hunt scored a total of 88 goals in 237 outings for Swindon before going on to represent the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Coventry City.

The thoughts of everyone at Swindon Town are with Ernie's family and friends at this very sad time.
