1 Phil Brown appointed Swindon Manager on Mon Mar 12 2018, 23:38


Swindon Town have appointed former Derby County, Hull City and Preston North End boss Phil Brown as manager until the end of the season.
The 58-year-old has been without a job since leaving League One side Southend United in January.
Swindon are ninth in League Two - two places outside the play-offs - with 10 games remaining.

They have have been without a manager since David Flitcroft departed for Mansfield Town on 1 March.
Matt Taylor, who will remain at the Wiltshire club as part of Brown's coaching set-up. took charge for Saturday's 3-0 home defeat by Cheltenham Town.
Brown will begin with a trip to 14th-placed Cambridge United on Saturday, with his new side two points off a play-off place.

"We have a 10-game season now," he said. "It's really a snapshot of what football is all about. This is an opportunity to get the club promoted.
"The lure of the play-offs and possible promotion was a big attraction for me, as was the sales pitch from the chairman. Lee Power outlined what he wants for the club and the ambition.
"Swindon, as a club, have been a sleeping giant for years now. They have a fantastic history with some great names to have played or managed here."

Former Hartlepool, Halifax Town, Bolton Wanderers and Blackpool right-back Brown, formerly Sam Allardyce's number two, becomes Swindon's ninth manager in seven years.
