Jamie Lloyd-Davies is the new Swindon Town boss and was in the dugout for last weekend’s home FA Women’s National League Cup fixture.

On his arrival, Lloyd-Davies said: “I am honoured and delighted to be named manager of the club and I am excited to be able to take this opportunity to help the club achieve its full potential.

“The club is evolving and showing real ambition with operations behind the scenes that will see the club grow and develop and now it is also right that we get it right on the pitch.

“During such a difficult period of transition and being able to retain and acquire some exceptionally talented players shows the lengths they have gone to.”
