An interesting development at Swindon Town today. Director of Football Ben Chorley has suddenly resigned.
Chorley originally served as a free-lance recruitment scout before last July moving into the role of director of football at the County Ground the same day that Ben Garner was appointed as manager.
Chorley is a Sidcup lad, and had a playing career that took him from Arsenal’s academy to Wimbledon, MK Dons (who he opted to move to following their relocation), Tranmere, Leyton Orient, Portsmouth and eventually to Bromley where he packed in playing at the age of 35.
Chorley helped Garner build a team that win he joined last summer had just 7 pros on the books.
Swindon chairman Clem Morfuni said that Chorley leaves with immediate effect.
Rich Cawley had already suggested that Garner’s assistant coaches Scott Marshall and Scott Lindsey will also join the Addicks.
Is this all part of Thomas Sandgaard’s jigsaw?
