Swindon Town manager Kevin MacDonald has left the club by mutual consent after just 14 games in charge.
New Swindon Town owner, Lee Power, has released a statement following his takeover of the football club.
I’d like to try and alleviate some of the fans’ concerns. To put the record straight, here are the facts: I paid £300,000 to buy out individuals who had shares in the Club and this gave me an option to take control of the Club, which I have now exercised.
I put in £1.2 million to get the embargo lifted last season which I withdrew once the Football League had been satisfied. The financial forecasts I was given at the time were unfortunately drastically inaccurate and the Club has needed more financial input than I originally thought.
– New Swindon Town owner, Lee Power
Divulging this sort of information isn’t my usual approach to business and certainly, when I played football, I always felt the best owners were the ones you didn't hear from. However, I do understand that a football club is at the heart of a community and the fans have been concerned about the future of their Club.
Hopefully the fans have seen that the early signs of what we are trying to achieve have been encouraging.
I have always felt the best owners were the quiet ones but I realise I need to be more engaging with the fans about what's going on and I will be in the future
