SWINDON Town Ladies have announced the appointment of Steve Robertson as their new first-team manager.

Robertson takes over from Jason Brizzell and will be assisted by Shane Hewlett and Kim Reeves. Brizzell will now take charge of the Ladies’ development squad.

“We’re really pleased with those appointments and hope those two guys can steer us,” Hewlett told the Advertiser. 

“They’ve got some great ideas. We’re out there trying to sign players from bigger clubs. There is no budget whatsoever but we want people to be inspired by our story and think that there’s a group of people at Swindon Town who want to be somewhere.”
