SWINDON Town have confirmed that Nick Watkins has stepped down from his role as chief executive at the club.
Watkins is understood to have had his final official day at the County Ground on Friday but will remain available to the Robins' new owners until March 31 during transition.
In a statement on the club's official website, Watkins said: "I am relieved and delighted that the club has been able to secure new owners and I wish Jed McCrory and his team every ounce of success going forward.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed each single minute of my five years with the club and I shall remember my time here with great affection. I have been privileged to work with a great team of people, and I am proud that I can hand to the new owners, a Club that is in peak condition.
“To the STFC staff, sponsors, suppliers, and the fans, I would like to express my genuine and very sincere gratitude for your friendship and support. COYR."
Robins general manager Steve Murrall said in the same statement: “First of all on behalf of Jed and his team, I would like to thank Nick for his considerable efforts during his time with the club.
“As new owners we have inherited a great team on and off the pitch and that’s testament to Nick’s good work. We now look forward to building on those great foundations and taking the club forward towards the Championship.”
