McEveley heads the list as Town release 10 on season’s final day

Jay McEveley

Jay McEveley

First published in Sport by

JAY McEveley was the highest profile casualty as Swindon Town chose not to renew the contracts of 10 players last week.

McEveley, who played 78 times for the club following his initial loan switch from Barnsley in March 2012, was unable to agree on an extended stay at the Wiltshire outfit and is now free to look for a new side over the summer.

The Scouser, voted third by Advertiser readers in the paper’s Player of the Year poll recently, received a standing ovation when he was substituted in the 87th minute of Saturday’s home clash with Rotherham United.

Afterwards he spoke of how much the reception of the fans meant to him, telling the Advertiser: “It was special. I didn’t know I was seen in that light, to be honest. I just go about my business and give everything on the pitch.

“If I have a good game or a bad game or a six out of 10 game I’m always giving 110 per cent. Maybe they’ve seen that and I like that in them.

“Looking at this season I think my form’s been more than a six out of 10, to be honest. I think I’ve had a pretty good campaign and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. I’ve enjoyed playing with these talented kids.”

Lee Cox, Aaron Oakley, Dany N’Guessan, Alex Smith, Alex Ferguson, Leigh Bedwell, Paul Benson, Kayden Jackson and Mark Francis were also released by the club.

Oakley tweeted: “After 11 years at Swindon it's time to move on. Been a great bunch of lads this year and good memories from my time here! New chapter.

“Disappointed I didn’t get to play but I’m happy that I’ve come through the system and would like to thank everyone at Swindon.”

Bedwell tweeted: “Gutted 12 years at Swindon has ended, playing for the team I support was a dream come true. Made great friends along the way too!”

Jackson, the winner of last season’s Samsung Win A Pro Contract competition, tweeted: “Last drive home from Swindon, been a good year with some top lads! Looking forward to what the future will bring now though.”

The situations of a further four players remain up in the air, with Town working on potential extended deals for Troy Archibald-Henville, Raphael Branco, Connor Waldon and Jack Barthram.

Alan Navarro, who has missed the entire season through injury, is understood to be set to retire when his contract expires in the summer after a long-standing cruciate knee ligament problem.

Harry Agombar, who penned a one-year deal last summer, has barely featured in Mark Cooper’s matchday squads this season and is unlikely to remain on the club’s books in 2014/15.

Personally I've never rated Williams as a striker. Yes he has pace, but his finishing is woeful. He also must have been on high wages, since the only reason he came here is because we offered more than other clubs.

I think we can find better for less.

Spoke to him a few times recently and he said he's almost fit and ready for a good pre-season. I think he has 1 year left on his contract, his pace and Smith's knock downs may be useful next season as we've struggled up front since Ranger did his thing.

It sounds although Cooper wanted to keep Jay, but the wages were an issue and he obviously thinks he can get a better deal elsewhere. Wish him luck, certainly a better player now than when he first arrived.

The other released player I'm surprised to see go is Alex Smith, thought he showed good composure when he played, but as with Oakley and Lee Cox long term injuries prevented them getting a chance to cement a regular place.

I have my doubts that Troy will agree to stay on a pay as you play deal, I hope he does because as of now if we lose him we only have Wardy and Branco as recognised centre backs and I will be surprised if Darren continues to play on as captain and first choice at the back. if he intends to move into coaching now is the time for him to make that move.

All the best to Jay. He has improved immensely since the nightmare performance witnessed at Preston N E earlier this season. Always put in a spirited shift and became increasingly effective as a wing back.

We certainly have a young and exciting squad for next season but not sure how consistent we can expect it to be with such inexperience. Ideally, we need a proven striker, a wise head to stand on the ball in midfield and another commanding head at the back alongside TAH.

Without a few experienced heads I would say that we would be heading to finish in a similar position to this year.

Troy is a necessity for next season, our defence is, to put it bluntly, very shakey without him. Stephens should be signed on loan for the season as well.

A left and right mid is required for next season without doubt.

A striker with pace n power as well.

And for me, Danny Hollands would be a quality addition, played well when he was last here and with his contract coming to an end, we should sign him for some midfield stability.

If we can keep the spine of the team (the Thompsons, Wes, Troy, Stephens) and make at least 5 solid, experienced additions then I believe we can push for the play offs next season.

Time will tell if we can pull this off. It's gonna be an interesting Summer.

Whilst we all have opinions, could someone enlighten me on any of PDC's signings that have been a real bargain and regular member of the first team to date please or sold with a handsome profit. There is Sir Wes of course but I'm struggling after that, I suppose TAH to latter end of this season, I will stand corrected if there are any or many more.
In my opinion the buying and selling of players is how clubs in our position survive, like it or lump it - and when PDC bought in players like confetti and the revolving players door was constantly rotating it cost us dearly.

You on drugs? Di Canio has tried sueing us and taking us to court since he left and got us into this mess.
Get real PDC was the best thing that ever happened to Stfc and I have been supporting them for more years than I care to remember
I don't trust or believe our board and would not be at all surprised if they had reneged on PDC hence the reason for his actions. For all his faults I believe he was true to his word
Read his autobiography and it's a good insight into the man
His famous autobiography called 'Mein Kampf', or was that someone else?

ask Sunderland supporters if they feel the same way.....

There in my opinion was a high cost to STFC for the PDC era , although agreed he did raise the crowds and their expectations with his enthusiasm for the game and also I will admit to being drawn along with the party atmosphere.
Unfortunately the prima donnas of the prem would not buy into his work ethos. Players from the lower divisions could see how it would make them better players. Sorry so much hate towards him.
Also, stfcdod Macari stands out as the manager who turned a very average side into a fit footballing team. You can say Ardilles and Hoddle were outstanding managers but my comments are based on previous quotes which I suggest you read before commenting

I did read your comments - hence my reply to YOUR comment about PDC ??????
Best thing to EVER happen to STFC ... my god what an overstatement that is - how long do you go back with that theory of yours - I suggest 4 years.

So are you reiterating the fact that you believe 'PDC was the best thing to ever happen to STFC'? That's twice you've changed your mind so far.........or is your memory fading in and out?

Just wondering Jock if Wilma will be better not being the target hold up man and whether Smith would also gain from this, as Wilma can be quick down the channels to supply the front man.
but hey I dont go out there enough to have an opinion ... ♥ :o)

Chish you can still voice an opinion these forums aren't just restricted to those who go, I don't get worried over the minus votes in up to 18 now lol - still well behind grims record haul.

Grim do you see smith and Wilma as the next Smash & grab or maybe just the new Tweedledum & Tweedledee?

Have to admit I do wonder where we will be getting the signings that will take us up next season , given that 1 of the 4 in the play offs will be gone (I will say Preston ) , That still leves 4 teams higher than us , Sheff Utd , Orient, Rotherham and Peterborough , then we have Doncaster and Yeovil plus Coventry who will not have 10 points deducted next season , Bristol City will get it together next season . I just wonder where the oher half of the team will come from to build this promoton pushing side and why they wont be classified work in progress as our team has been all this season ,even then we can only start talks and make signings once the actual owner of the club is known , how long will that drag on for ?

Oh come on, there is such a long way to go before the start of next season. A dozen things can happen by then. I think we are capable of recruiting some decent players over the summer. After all we did that this past season, if finishing 8th is anything to go by.
