TRUST STFC board member James Spencer says the supporter group expects Clem Morfuni to complete his Fit and Proper Persons test with the EFL “imminently.”

Town’s minority shareholder began the process of undergoing the owners test on July 7 in order to try and fast-track the process of being able to take over at the County Ground as soon as the remaining shares are transferred from current owner Lee Power.

Though the transfer of shares does not appear to be close at this point, the other part of Town’s sale - involving Mr Morfuni’s eligibility to run a football club - is thought to be imminent, according to Trust STFC.

Speaking to Jim White and Simon Jordan on TalkSport Radio this Thursday, Mr Spencer of Trust STFC gave an update on Swindon Town’s sale.

He said: “The situation we’re in at the moment - there are two parts to the puzzle for (Clem Morfuni) to become owner.

“One is the EFL approval, which Mr Morfuni has already passed in terms of being a minority shareholder in the fit and proper test, but to become a full owner Mr Morfuni has to pass an enhanced version.

“That’s with the EFL at the moment, and we at the Trust believe - as we’re in close contact with Mr Morfuni’s lawyers - that EFL approval is imminent.

“Hopefully, in the next couple of days we will hear some positive news. Once that’s happened, the share transfer between Lee Power and Clem Morfuni can occur.

“We’re hoping Clem can take over and then ultimately start re-building our football club.”

The Trust representative later went on to give his view on what needs to be done to quickly re-build the club and ensure Swindon can be competitive when the new League Two season rolls around in three weeks’ time.

Mr Spencer said: “The key thing is, once EFL approval comes through, the Supporters Trust are calling out to Lee Power to transfer his shares as soon as he possibly can to Clem Morfuni.

“Once Clem Morfuni takes on ownership of the club, we can focus on football again rather than all of these off-field activities.

“When Clem takes over, we will need to get as much done as we possibly can in such a short space of time so that we can start the League Two season.

“It’s going to be a difficult season because we’re behind all the other clubs already, but all this needs to happen as soon as possible.”
