‘Bit of a joke’, ‘Been shafted again’ – These Swindon Town fans react to latest club statement

Swindon Town have parted company with Dion Donohue in a blow to their survival chances in League One.

A (very) brief statement on their website said: “Swindon Town can confirm that Dion Donohue has left the club for personal reasons. We wish Dion the best of luck in the future and the Club will be making no further comment.”

Donohue, who has previously played for Portsmouth, Chesterfield and Mansfield, only penned a permanent deal with the Robins in September. He left Field Mill under something of a cloud. He initially joined Swindon in 2019, but wasn’t pursued for the second half of last season and remained a free agent.

This season, the 27-year-old has appeared 11 times for the struggling Robins but is now a free agent and likely to seek out another club, whatever the reasons for his departure. The rumour mill is heavy on social media, with Salford City and Bolton both mentioned as possible destinations when he can sign for clubs in the New Year.

It is fair to say the news hasn’t gone down well with fans on social media. Swindon are currently 20th in the table, with 16 points from 16 matches, and are under new management after Ritchie Wellens left for Salford City earlier in the season. What fans need is hope and progress, not players leaving without the possibility of being replaced.

They have been offering their insight on Twitter, with the best of the responses below for your to ‘enjoy’.
