Swindon Town Football Club can now make public the minutes from the April Advisory Board meeting, which was hosted at The County Ground earlier this month
Attended by Swindon Town Owner Clem Morfuni, Vice Chairman Zav Austin, Don Rogers, Rob Angus, James Spencer who represented TrustSTFC and Anthony Reeves who was present on behalf of the Official Swindon Town Supporters Club, a number of key points were discussed, including:
- The sale of The County Ground has now been approved by Swindon Borough Council, with the focus now on finalising the sale and sorting the lease documents and agreeing the funding for the purchase.
- External debt has now been reduced from £4.5 million to £1.8 million, with all repayment plans on track.
- Work is progressing well on preparing historic accounts but, in order to enable more time, the filing dates for the May '21 accounts have been deferred until May '22.
- Over 1,100 Season Tickets have been sold for the 2022-23 season to date, with the aim to once again push for 6k Season Ticket Holders.
- Stadium repairs are in full swing and substantial investment in both the stadium and the County Ground pitch and pitches at the training ground will likely be made.
- TrustSTFC members have voted unanimously in favour of funding statues of club legends Don Rogers and John Trollope, that will sit outside The County Ground.
- Hard work is being done to improve the quality of products inside STFC Store, and next season's kits will soon be made public with the club confident that fans will love the 2022-23 strips.

The sole purpose of the STFC Advisory Board is to meet monthly to review and assess the performance and strategic direction of Swindon Town Football Club, and to ensure that there is open, transparent and regular engagement on key matters impacting all aspects of the club.
It also builds on the Memorandum of Understanding that was recently signed between Swindon Town and TrustSTFC, and it continues the commitment from the Football Club to maintain open and transparent engagement with its fanbase.
The STFC Advisory Board will meet every month with the next meeting set for Tuesday 3rd May 2022, and there is an opportunity for fans to raise any questions they have via TrustSTFC and the Supporters Club.
The Advisory Board meetings present an ideal opportunity for fans to put across their feedback, ideas and suggestions to the club’s management team, so we encourage all supporters to get in touch with either of the Supporter Groups.
There will be a section devoted to the Advisory Board on the official Swindon Town Website, where documents and minutes from every meeting will be published for fans to read.
