Judge Didn't Believe McCrory


The ongoing saga at Swindon has seen a judge suggest that Jed McCrory was lying under oath.

The revelation came during the second day of a trial to determine who owns the League One side, with McCrory and current Robins chairman Lee Power arguing over who had control of the side.

Judge Strauss said: “I frankly don’t believe Mr McCrory’s evidence" when referring to emails sent between the pair over a 3 year extension to an unspecified agreement. McCrory claimed the extension only referred to Power's then position as Director of Football rather than an option to take control of the shares held by McCrory.

McCrory has several links to the current regime at Edgar Street. He met with Herefordshire Council back in March, a point he acknowledged to BN at the time, and the Robins signed Harry Agombar to a two year playing deal while McCrory was Chairman - with Swindon fans claiming Tommy Agombar was among McCrory's entourage until his departure in December.

McCrory had previously been at Banbury, where he employed current Bulls coaches Paul Davis and Jon Taylor.
