Long serving player and coach, and former Welsh international Paul Bodin, has been put in temporary charge of Swindon Town Football Club.
Town were relegated from League One on Monday and major upheavals have ensued during the week. Andrew Fitton has resigned as chairman after leading a takeover of the club three years ago and has been replaced by director and fellow investor Jeremy Wray on a temporary basis.
Paul Hart, who oversaw, the town’s rapid decline and relegation since he replaced Danny Wilson on 3 March, left the club today and Paul Bodin was asked by the new chairman to step up from his role as youth team coach to be first team manager for the last two games of the season.
He said he was delighted to be given the chance to work with the first team players and wants them to give a good account of themselves before the curtain finally drops on the season.
Half the squad are out of contract by the summer and a new full time coach will be expected to rebuild the team before the new season kicks off in August.
