Cuervo was a classy player and I would love someone in his style to play for the Town again, he had pace and control, a good cross and shot and could pick out a good pass too.

Apparently he is assistant reserve team manager are Marseille now.

Here is an article, posted on here almost every pre season, about our trialists, brings back some good memories.

Philippe Cuervo wasn't a full back though.....

Swindon did have some other good overseas trialists with the likes of full-backs Phil Cuervo, Miguel Comminges and Lescinel Jean-Francois all carving out moderate careers at the club. We also found a few in the depths of domestic football, such as erratic Knutsford Townís wingback Paul Edwards, and in his case, sent them back there when the novelty wore off.

Neither did we send Edwards back, he was decent, but had issues, so returned north for that reason.

His official position was indeed right back but at Swindon he played right wing. All his career in France was played at fullback.

There are many flaws in that article TBH.

Sounds like they've had problems with the sprinkler system. Probably had to dig up and fix/replace so reseed certain parts so needs more time. Better to not play than damage the pitch.
