SWINDON Town Official Supporters Club treasurer Tim Keen rounds up the latest Town news from the fans' point of view.

We would like to start this week’s article by sending a warm OSC welcome to our new head coach Scott Lindsey. After what seemed like an eternity of monitoring social media channels for an announcement (and reading plenty of rumours!) the club confirmed that Ben Garner’s previous assistant was stepping into the hot seat.

Scott speaks well, he’s clearly passionate about the club, and hopefully the continuity the appointment brings will help us hit the ground running on July 30.

The other big announcement last week (apart from some new signings – and a warm welcome to these lads too) was the fixture list. Thankfully, we never ended up with Barrow, Hartlepool or Carlisle away on a Tuesday evening, but the mileages we’re going to be racking up this season following our club does make for interesting reading! Let’s hope our away performances meet the high standards set by the club last season.

This week, Rob Angus and the new head of media Dave Wrixton joined Vic Morgan on the Monday Night Panel. A lot of topics were covered, and if you missed it, you can watch it back on our Facebook and YouTube channels.

If you think a question didn’t get answered, you can also contact us directly and we’ll take any questions to the advisory board next week.

We’re busy organizing for next season. OSC membership for the 2022-23 season is now available online at www.stfc-osc.com, and you can join for only £5.

Membership means that you’ll be entered into draws for hospitality tickets, access to member-only events and discounted coach tickets for away games with SAS Travel. We’ll also be sending every OSC member a free fixture wall chart where you can track all the matches next season. Join now!

You can also buy yourself a match-day draw season ticket online at the website above. The second prize this season will be an official shirt signed by the players – not a bad prize for £23 which will get you automatically entered for every draw this season.

It was good to see the announcement this week of a number of arrests following the unsavoury scenes after the Port Vale play-off match. It’s disappointing that this has been such a slow process, but it’s good to see that some of the hooligans that evening are now facing criminal proceedings.

Next time I write this, we’ll be even closer to the start of the season and hopefully the shape of our new squad will becoming clearer! Back to Twitter then for the latest rumour… Come on you Reds!
