Swindon Town are deeply saddened to hear that former player Alan McLoughlin has passed away age 54.

Alan joined Town in August 1986 signing on a free transfer from Manchester United and played 136 times over five seasons.

Perhaps his most famous moment in a Swindon shirt was scoring the winning goal at Wembley in the 1990 Second Division Play-Off Final against Sunderland in a 1-0 victory.

During his time in SN1, Macca became the first Swindon player to ever appear at a World Cup finals, when played against England and Egypt representing the Republic of Ireland.

Following retirement from his playing days, McLoughlin was appointed as Academy manager at the club in February 2018, whilst also being in charge of the U18 side.

Everyone associated with Swindon Town Football Club send their condolences to Alan’s family and friends at this difficult time.
