Swindon appoints former Villa no.2 MacDonald

Swindon Town has appointed Kevin MacDonald as its new manager.

The 52-year old, who was most recently assistant at Aston Villa, has replaced Paolo Di Canio at the County Ground.

"This is a hugely important appointment at a significant moment in Swindon's recent history and we are delighted to appoint a football man of Kevin's calibre as our new manager,” said Swindon chairman Jed McCrory.

"This is a clear message that the new Board is determined to drive on for promotion this season and continue to try and bring success to Swindon.

"Kevin has fantastic football credentials as a double-winner with Liverpool during his playing days and he is an excellent coach. He has great connections with top players and he is a proper football man.

"We have every faith for Kevin now to lead Swindon from the front at a pivotal moment in the campaign. It is a new start for Kevin and for our new board of directors and we move forward together with every confidence.
