Another Swindon Owl? Never...

Another Swindon Owl? Never...

Paul Sturrock, Lee Peacock, Barry Corr and Steve Adams have all made the switch to Swindon - and Burton O'Brien doesn't seem to be too far behind.

Former Wednesday boss Sturrock is seemingly keen to get some of his former Owls with him in League One at the County Ground and reports in the Daily Record today point towards a move for O'Brien to the Robins.

The former Blackburn Rovers and Livingston midfielder has fallen out of favour under current Wednesday gaffer Brian Laws and could be set for the exit door at S6 as Laws looks to bolster his squad ahead of the new season.

Sturrock has long been a manager who sticks by the players he brings to different clubs, with Hasney Aljofree joining the Robins this season from Sturrock's former club Plymouth, while Corr, Peacock and Adams have all followed Sturrock south.

Owls defender Graham Coughlan, who has also fallen out of favour at S6 under Laws has also been linked with a move to reunite him with his former boss, giving Swindon a distinct 'Wednesday Mark 2' feel about them next term.
