Swindon Town's players will be fined more for failing to provide birthday treats for their team-mates than for urinating in the showers during the 2017-18 season.

The Robins, top of League Two under the leadership of Dave Flitcroft following their relegation last term, have pinned up fines lists at their Beversbrook training centre in Calne, Wiltshire.

Sportsmail has seen a copy and it makes for intriguing reading.

Among the more traditional punishments for turning up late to training and team meals, losing club equipment and failing to attend medical tests are a number of quirkier categories which give an insight into lower-league dressing rooms.

For instance, players who relieve themselves in the showers can expect to be hit with a £10 penalty, half the cost of a squad member forgetting to turn up at training on their birthday with cakes for the group.

Not wearing flip flops in the shower will leave the offender a tenner out of pocket and turning out for the club on a matchday in a pair of dirty boots is worth £50 into the kitty.

Failure to attend a team night out is likely to be more expensive to the Swindon players than hitting the town with their team-mates, with £250 the penalty for being a kill-joy.

Anyone who doesn't fancy the customary initiation ritual of singing in front of the rest of the squad will be penalised too, to the tune of £100.

And players who lose their GPS trackers do so at their peril. The club make them individually liable for each unit's replacement, at a whopping £2,500 a pop - more than the highest weekly wage at the County Ground.
