SWINDON TOWN: Wray expects more changes at the County Ground
FORMER Swindon Town chairman Jeremy Wray says he expects the club’s holding company to be restructured over the coming months and years, as the Robins actively seek further investment.
Wray remains a director of Swindon Football Holdings Limited despite being replaced as chairman of the club earlier this week, while another former County Ground supremo in Andrew Fitton and the Robins’ majority shareholder Andrew Black occupy the other two seats on the board.
Restructuring could take place as a prelude to new money being pumped into the club.
Wray admits he is not sure what will happen regarding his shares in the holding company, but he did suggest its make-up may well change in the near future.
He told the Advertiser: “At this moment in time I honestly don’t know (what will happen with the shares).
“As you look at the people who are in that holding company and as each one of them gradually, for whatever reason, moves away there may be a sensible time when there is a different structure in place for the holding company.
“But that’s to be worked out, that’s certainly not my department or something I’m particularly strong at in knowing anything about.
“I’m sure common sense says that, as the club evolves from here, there will be changes in that structure as well.”
Meanwhile, Wray is not about to consider finding himself another role in football any time soon.
Having become intimately associated with the Robins over the past four-and-a-half years, he will continue to follow the club from afar.
He said: “It’s not like you’re asking a manager who’s suddenly going out there looking for another job and can happily swap one club for another at the drop of a hat and can suddenly be the greatest fan of his new club within 24 hours of leaving his old club.
“To be honest all my energies have been focused on what’s best for Swindon Town and I don’t look further than that at the moment.
“I’ll be looking at Swindon’s results and want to be part of that for the moment.
“What I do in the future, whether it’s football or not, I’ve got no idea.”
