Martin Ling makes Swindon Town return after being appointed manager

3 November 2015

Martin Ling has returned to Swindon Town after being appointed as the club's new first team manager.

Ling, a former midfielder, first moved to the County Ground in the summer of 1986 before being sold to Southend United.

But he returned to Wiltshire in 1991 and became a key part of the Robins side that won promotion to the Premier League in 1993, before leaving after the completion of the 1995/96 campaign.

He's now back at SN1, on a two-and-a-half year deal, replacing Mark Cooper in the dugout after he departed last month.
