Swindon, the club's owner and chairman Lee Power, and First Touch Pro Management and its company director Michael Standing have all been charged.

All parties in an ongoing ownership dispute over League One Swindon have been charged by the FA with breaching its rules on working with intermediaries.

Swindon, the club's owner and chairman Lee Power, and First Touch Pro Management and its company director Michael Standing have all been charged.

The parties concerned have been given until April 22 to respond to their respective charges.

The dispute, which resulted in a high court battle, centres on Standing's claim that he is the beneficial owner of 50 per cent of shares in the club.

Standing says he and Power agreed in March 2013 that they would buy Swindon "on a 50/50 basis", with Standing providing £800,000 of the funding required for the purchase.

In 2019, Standing was granted a high court injunction preventing Power dealing in those shares or the club's assets without his consent after he discovered that Power had sold a 15 per cent stake in the club without his knowledge.

In a statement in response to the charge, Swindon said: "Swindon Town Football Club were made aware of the FA charges this morning and are currently seeking legal advice."
