MATT Taylor will wait until the fate of the Swindon Town manager’s position is known before deciding on his own future at the club.

After arriving on a free transfer from Northampton Town last August, former Premier League player Taylor enjoyed a stellar season at the Energy Check County Ground in 2017-18, and was last week voted the club’s Player of the Year by readers of the Swindon Advertiser.

However, the 36-year-old is one of a number of players who are out of contract at the club this summer.

Taylor has previously stated his desire to move into coaching once his playing days are over and had a one-match stint as Town manager back in March in the wake of David Flitcroft’s shock resignation.

Phil Brown was subsequently appointed Swindon boss until the end of the campaign, with Taylor serving as player-coach under him, and the former Hull City chief was set to meet chairman Lee Power yesterday to discuss the prospect of staying on at the club.

Taylor says he will decide his own Town future once the managerial situation is resolved.

“The football club have got some big decisions to make over the coming weeks and we will see what happens with those decisions,” said Taylor.

“For me going forwards, I don’t know what decisions there will be to be made.

“One thing I will say is that I have loved playing for Swindon Town and playing football next season is something I want to look at, but I have also really enjoyed the foray into the coaching side of it.

“I must say that Phil has been really good with me and I have really enjoyed working with him alongside Brian (Horton).

“As and when things are set in stone with what is going on next season, I am sure I will sit down and we will have those conversations about what my role at this football club will be next season.”

Although the immediate future of the Town managerial hotseat remains unknown, Taylor has urged everyone who will be at the club next season to pull together in order to achieve success.

“For me personally, nothing has changed. I am still a player, that’s the way I look at it,” said Taylor.

“If there was a conversation to be had to work alongside Phil next season, then I would be very happy to do so, but we don’t know the answer to any of those questions yet.

“As an employee of this football club, we go along with it and we hope that the decisions that are made and the right ones for the football club.

“The football club is bigger than any one individual, so regardless of what happens next season, we have got to give ourselves the best opportunity to get out of League Two and back into League One because I believe that will be the aim whoever it is that is at the helm of the management.

“I for one would like it to be Phil but that is just a personal thing – it is not a decision I can make.”
