Bookmakers suspend betting on Phil Brown to Swindon Town

Swindon Town could be on the verge of appointing Phil Brown as David Flitcroft’s replacement after bookmakers Bet Victor suspended betting on the former Southend boss making the move over to the County Ground.

Swindon were left managerless on Thursday morning when Flitcroft decided to trade League Two dugouts to promotion rivals Mansfield Town, who lost their own boss Steve Evans to Peterborough a day earlier.

Back in January Brown was left jobless for the first time in five years after he was given the boot by Southend.

It wasn’t long until the perma-tanned boss was linked with a swift return to management, with the 58-year-old bursting into contention for both the Grimsby and Fleetwood jobs, while he was briefly the favourite to replace Evans at Mansfield.

However, if rumours are to be believed then Brown is set to return to League Two with Swindon, which would be his fifth permanent job in management.

Brown’s last experience of the fourth-tier was a successful one, having steered Southend up to League One three years ago, via the play-offs.

Brown also led Hull into the Premier League, where he is of course best remembered for that famous half-time team talk during the club’s clash with Man City (see video), and let’s not forget that sing-song after he kept the Tigers in the top-flight.
