SWINDON Town Football Club’s official mascot, Rockin’ Robin, has received a makeover courtesy of Trust STFC and the Official Supporters Club.

Presented before last Saturday’s home win over Exeter City at the County Ground, the bird – whose age is not known – showed off its new look to over 13,000 supporters prior to the on-field return of Eoin Doyle and Jerry Yates.

The existing mascot had rarely been seen this season, with the suit now over seven years old.

However, after a great deal of thought and discussion between all three parties, Town’s mascot is back and ready to rock once again.

To make the new suit a reality, both the Swindon Town Supporters’ Trust (Trust STFC) and The STFC Official Supporters Club (OSC) teamed up to co-fund the creation of a new suit for the football club.

James Spencer, a board member of Trust STFC, said: “We all wanted to ensure our mascot was looking sharp, and we’re delighted with the outcome.

“It’s a significant investment from both sides, but all parties were in agreement and really felt passionate about the cause.”

The OSC was also delighted with the project and how it turned out.

Hannah Clinch, a club representative, said: “We all agreed that Rockin’ Robin had been looking a little worse for wear recently, so we’re pleased to have been able to join forces with the Trust to fund a new suit to get him back out on the pitch, where he belongs!”

Both groups also paid tribute to Danny Lee and the team behind the scenes at The County Ground for their support and help in bringing the new Rockin’ Robin to life.

Fans will be able to get their next glimpse of the refreshed human-size bird on Saturday February 15 when Richie Wellens’ men host Scunthorpe United.
