Swindon Town Football Club are delighted to announce that we have agreed terms with Phil Brown to become our new Manager on a permanent basis.
The vastly experienced boss, who has promotions on his CV with the likes of Hull City and Southend United, has agreed on a two-year deal at The Energy Check County Ground.
Brown was brought in to oversee the final ten games of the 2017/18 campaign and will now lead the club into next season and beyond.
Speaking after confirming the new man at the helm, Swindon Town Chairman Lee Power said: "The Football Club are delighted to announce that we have agreed a two-year deal with Phil Brown to become our new manager.
"We had a very good meeting on Tuesday evening and we spent a day going through budgets and personnel for next season, which we finalised today hence the delay in making this announcement.
"One of the key reasons behind appointing Phil on a permanent basis was that I feel the club needs some stability, which he gives us in abundance.
"We were obviously disappointed not to make the Play-Offs last season and no one more so than Phil.
"This deal gives Phil an opportunity to put his own stamp on the team and, with his record and experience in management, I think he'll help bring this club success over the next two years."
WE WILL HAVE FURTHER REACTION TO PHIL BROWN'S APPOINTMENT THROUGHOUT THIS EVENING.
