Swindon Town CEO Anthony Hall has refuted the claims of the Swindon Town Supporters Trust that they had not been given access to the club’s account.

TrustSTFC issued a statement on Monday afternoon saying that aside from an initial meeting, they still had not been given a time for their treasurer and management accountant Scott Curtis to come in and do a review of the accounts.

However, during an interview with Vic Morgan and the Supporters Club on Monday night, Hall said that suggestions the club had been obstructive in the process were “just not the case”.

Speaking to ‘On the Sofa’, Hall said: “That just isn’t the case, I am quite surprised by it [the statement], I just read the report before I came on, and that is just not the case.

“It came up in the Advisory Board, we have offered for the Trust to come in, there has been an initial meeting between Scott Curtis and Annabela Da Costa to set out what Scott would like to see, and that information has been readily available for him to come in.

“There was the potential for him to visit last Friday, that hasn’t happened, we have now offered for him to come in on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, for him to view all of the accounts and what he wants to see.

“There is nothing there that we are trying to hide, and the inference that we are being obstructive just isn’t true, and that is the way that I have taken it when I read that article.

“There is no issue to it, the guys can come in when they want, we have said this, and I am a little bit frustrated by the statement to be perfectly honest.

“It isn’t the way we have put out for this process to be done.”

The Trust had said in their statement that this was not the case, and they were yet to be offered the opportunity by the club to view the accounts.

The statement said: “While the process was expected to take time, we’ve encountered delays beyond our control. Despite frustrations, we have initiated the process with an initial meeting.

“We are disappointed in the current stage of progress and are actively engaging with the club to expedite the review. We will continue to press for the next stage and offer solutions to accelerate progress.”
