Profile

Swindon Town are managed by Luke Williams who was handed a five-year contract in March 2016. Williams had been in charge of the first team since Martin Ling stepped down at the end of December, and obviously impressing in the role, with the Robins making the contract permanent.

Swindon have sampled playing football in the Premier League when they gained promotion to the highest tier at the end of the 1992-1993 season, but couldn't hold their own in the top flight and were relegated, with their leaky defence conceding 100 goals.

It would prove to be a continual decline that the Robins would see over the next few decades and they find themselves in League One. Having tasted League Cup success in 1969, Swindon Town fans will be looking for the club to rise up the leagues and in Mark Cooper they may just have found the man they are looking for to prove to be the catalyst for a club, who certainly belong in the higher echelons of the English league ladder.
