SWINDON Town owner Clem Morfuni fills his latest exclusive Adver Sport column by reacting to a small bit of good news for him and the club this week...

Hello from Oz. What a great time to be a Swindon fan and for me to be steward of this great club.

The FA Cup third-round game against Manchester City is fantastic for the club. It will be a great occasion for our fans to see how our team, which has been so well put together and coached by the two Ben’s and the Scott’s, fairs against some of the world’s greatest.

It is also a great opportunity for some much-needed revenue for the club given the historic financial position we have inherited.

As a club, we have to maximise the opportunity to drive revenue from this game given the debts that remain and legal costs we face for varying disputes that we are clearing up from the previous regime.

We also face numerous costs from hosting such a big game, from extra stewarding and policing costs to the costs of readying the Stratton Bank. We will be looking to reward priority for those supporters who have bought season tickets and half-season tickets first, but we will also look at other ways to reward loyalty.

With the investment of additional seats in the Stratton Bank we are striving to ensure that as much as the ground is available to home fans as possible. More details on how to gain access to tickets and ticket pricing will be available next week.

Every penny we make from this game will be reinvested into the club and be used to repair the financial position we have inherited.

We will fully disclose what revenue we take in from the game and how it will be reinvested in the club at our advisory board meeting, which is attended by the Supporters Trust and Supporters Club.

However, before the Man City game we have five important league games coming up which I know Ben and the team are very focused on. This includes our next home game against Walsall on December 18, which should be a great Christmas celebration at the County Ground!

I am expecting to be back soon so will look forward to seeing you all at an upcoming game!

Thanks for all your support. COYR. Clem.
