He lead the side to their historic win over Arsenal in the League Cup back in 1969. 

The 50th anniversary of that match is 15th March this year. 

He managed the club during two spells, between 1965 and 1969, and then again between 1974 and 1978.

The club have called him 'a true legend'.

Swindon fans have been sharing their memories and fondness of Williams on social media:
