Swindon Town name new manager

Swindon Town have named their new manager as David Flitcroft.

The former Bury manager has a background as a player, a coach and a manager, and guided the Manchester club to promotion into League One.

Swindon say Flitcroft has been "given a very competitive budget", and they hope he will keep the team competing at the top of League Two.

The club has taken its time over this appointment as it was vital after relegation that we got the right man to take the club forward and give us the best chance of promotion back to League One at the first time of asking.

We are convinced David is this man.
