Jimmy GAULD

Striker Gauld was brought to the club from Plymouth in August 1959, for a club record fee of 6,500. He made forty appearances for the Town in the 1959/1960 season, scoring fourteen goals, despite a run of twelve games without a goal mid-season.

He was released at the end of the season, after accusations that he helped to fix a match in April versus Port Vale, which the Town lost 6-1. Four years later, he admitted that "Swindon were comfortably in the middle of the League, with nothing to win or lose, so it didn't seem such a terrible thing to do." He was jailed for four years in 1965, along with other ex-Swindon players Bronco Layne and Jack Fountain, and ordered to pay 5,000 costs.
