PRESS RELEASE : New Rockin Robin Suit for STFC Mascot Jointly Funded by TrustSTFC and Official Supporters Club
January 31st 2020 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The current mascots suit is over 7 years old and has recently been looking its age and so the TrustSTFC and Official Supporters Club have jointly funded a new suit for the Swindon Mascot.
We all love our dancing and mischievous Rockin Robin mascot at Swindon Town home games, the robin brings great pleasure to the town fans and especially the junior robins with his dancing and engagement with fans. The Robin has been dreadfully missed the last few home games and there is a reason for him not showing off his dancing during this period. No, he hasn’t flown away to mate for the winter or run off with his girlfriend to get married, simply the suit he wears has unfortunately fallen apart and is now unusable and unrepairable. The current Rockin Robin suit is over 7 years old and has been looking its age recently and prior to Christmas it finally fell apart. The TrustSTFC and The Official Supporters Club therefore contacted the club and offered and agreed to jointly fund the purchase of a brand new suit for our very own mascot.
The new suit design, largely inline with the current suit is shown below and has one new major addition to it, that being the design includes the ability for us to add the home shirt to the outfit each season for the Robin to be current and on brand with the home kit for that season.
James Spencer from the TrustSTFC and Hannah Clinch from the OSC, commented below on the project and new suit:
James commented “We all felt that at the TrustSTFC we wanted to ensure our Swindon mascot was looking sharp and had a new suit to delight all his fans so we agreed with the Official Supporters Club that we would jointly fund a new suit for him, this is a significant investment for both sides but we really felt passionate that we wanted to do this to ensure Rockin was looking his best for his dance routines, we are delighted with the outcome.”.
Hannah commented “All of us at the Official Supporters Club had agreed that Rockin’ Robin has been looking a little worse for wear recently, so we’re pleased to have been able to join forces with TrustSTFC to fund a new suit to get him back out on the pitch, where he belongs! We hope you all like the new suit as much as we do! “
We are delighted with the new suit and we are all looking forward to seeing Rockin wearing the new suit at the next home game. The Trust and OSC would like to thank Danny Lee from the club for all his support and help in getting the new suit project over the line.
