SWINDON Town Football Club employees have been paid 60 per cent of their wages for the month of June, Adver Sport understands.

Sources close to Swindon Town have suggested players and staff received a letter with the aforementioned information and that those affected will receive the rest of their June salary along with their July salary later this month.

After reports emerged that neither playing or non-playing staff at the County Ground had been paid last month, it is thought the EFL intervened after a delayed period of time and ensured those people would receive their wages out of the next set of due finances from the governing body, as long as the club promised to use it for paying staff and nothing else.

Town remain under a transfer embargo nevertheless after the EFL discovered club players and staff had not been paid on time earlier this month. 

Under section 53.1 of the EFL's rules and regulations regarding non-payment to players, they state: "If following written notification from the Professional Footballers' Association, a Club is found to be in default of any payment due in accordance with a Player's contract or payment in consequence of termination of such contract, The League may place an embargo on any transfer of any registration by such Club until the payment is made."

This was found to be the case, as were five EFL regulation breaches. The County Ground club were said to have broken regulations including; failure to provide audited annual accounts, annual accounts not filed with Companies House, defaults in payments to HMRC, non-payment to football creditors, and failure to submit SCMP (Salary Cap Management Protocol) calculation.

On the EFL's Embargo Reporting Service, the first two regulations have now been removed after Town filed audited annual accounts with Companies House around a week ago.
