FANS SEEK TO BUY STADIUM
A GROUP of Swindon Town fans are attempting to buy the club’s County Ground from the council .
Trust STFC has offered Swindon Borough £1.1m, and director of Trust STFC James Phipps says the ground needs some urgent upgrades, having been the same for decades.
“We feel it needs improving and has a reluctant owner in some ways in the council, which is cash-strapped through austerity measures,” said Phipps.
“We’d like to take it from them to try to see if we can work on investment plans to make it a fit-for-purpose stadium for the next 50 to 100 years.”
