Tony Finnigan springs to mind, and Adie Williams.
Yeah Tony Finnigan I forgot him, I mentioned Adi in my above post.

The Bronco thing I was not around for but saw a reconstruction of it on BBC4 a while back, they didn't mention Swindon though all Sheff Weds I think in the dramatisation.

I don't remember anything bad but I do remember him being the fastest player I had ever seen (at the time) without the ball but useless when he had it!

I am sure this has embellished in my memory, but I have visions of his introduction being a sprint away from the left back, in front of the new stand, before the ball ran out of play and he fell over.

Surely Christian Roberts can't just be a redemption story?

The only bit that I think is embellished is that I don't think he actually fell over but he did often just fall over, otherwise spot on Cheesy

Not a Swindon player, but convicted in Swindon:

Vince Farrar, who was Honest Bri's accountant at STFC, got a 6 month suspended sentence.  The fact he had no accountancy qualifications probably an advantage at the job interview.

As for Bad Boys, they didn't come any worse than Darren Bullock.

Rhys Evans, Jamie Vincent, Lloyd Jones, Rohan Ince, Adi Williams, Andy Nicholas, Chris Zebrowski (only youth level) all arrested for assault.

Wasn't David Geddis arrested for something too? and Frankie Macavennie.
Not sure if anybody remembers this but Bullock was sent off about 15 mins into his Bury debut after joining them from us. Our stadium announcer at the time announced it during the h/t interval & was met with a massive cheer  Cheesy

and Frankie Macavennie.

Served time on remand but got acquitted. I remember him admitting to the cocaine use but can't remember if that was just before or after he was with us. Article just says 1994.
