Paul Benson will not be going on loan to the Rocking Robins after all: http://www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk/sport/sportlatest/9393427.Benson_move_off/
What happened was that the wonders of Wiltshire failed to get their paper work completed in time. I think the magic roundabout isn't there any more, otherwise one might think they have been going round it too many times. Nothing has been said in the meantime because they have been trying to persuade the Football League to show some leniency, but their response is rules is rules.
So from having three League 2 teams chasing him we have a situation where a presumably demoralised Benno is left at Sparrows Lane, although Swindon still hope to sign him up in January.
This is a problem in terms of match fitness when we don't have a proper reserve team, albeit there are behind closed doors friendlies and Kent Senior Cup fixtures. A false economy in my view.
Perhaps Benno could be given a seat on the bench and a possible cameo on Saturday.
Perhaps more significant is the official announcement that technical director Jeff Vetere has left the club. It had been rumoured for some time, but some such rumours turn out to be false. In a sense perhaps he has made his impact for us and needed a new challenge.
