Saturday’s home win in front of a sell-out County Ground not only saw Swindon Town move four points clear at the top of League Two but also the return of a number of firm fan favourites to proceedings.
Along with Eion Dyle and Jerry Yates, STFC presented a refreshed-looking Rockin’ Robin shortly before kick-off. The existing mascot had rarely been seen this season, with the suit now over 7 years old.
To make the new suit a reality, both the Swindon Town Supporters’ Trust (TrustSTFC) and The STFC Official Supporters Club (OSC) teamed up to co-fund the creation of a new suit for the football club.
James Spencer, a board member of TrustSTFC, commented: “We all wanted to ensure our mascot was looking sharp, and we’re delighted with the outcome. It’s a significant investment from both sides, but all parties were in agreement and really felt passionate about the cause.”
The OSC were also delighted with the project, with Hannah Clinch adding: “We all agreed that Rockin’ Robin had been looking a little worse for wear recently, so we’re pleased to have been able to join forces with to fund a new suit to get him back out on the pitch, where he belongs!”
Both groups also paid tribute to Danny Lee and all the team behind the scenes at The County Ground for their support and help in bringing the new Rockin’ Robin to life.
