PREVIEW: Supermarine V Town

All You Need To Know Ahead Of Our Pre-Season Opener

8 July 2017

Town get their pre-season campaign underway with a trip to neighbours Swindon Supermarine today (3pm Kick-Off).

Ahead of the game, we have provided a rundown of things to look out for at the Webbs Wood Stadium.

Dave Flitcroft’s First Game In Charge:

After filling the hot-seat at The County Ground in June, the new gaffer will lead his new-look team into battle for the very first time later today.

With plenty of work done already on the training ground, this afternoon’s fixture will give Town fans a first glimpse at how the Flitcroft era is coming together.

Keeping Up With Tradition:

This fixture is always one to look out for when the pre-season programme is announced and there could well be a bumper crowd at the Webbs Wood Stadium later.

With new faces on both sides and with another lovely day expected in Swindon, everything is set up to ensure that today’s game is a cracker.

New Boys:

Town have been busy in the transfer market so far and all seven of our signings are expected to be involved today.

Chris Robertson, James Dunne, Paul Mullin, Ben Purkiss, Olly Lancashire, Amine Linganzi and Chris Hussey, who signed on loan from Sheffield United on Friday, will all get the chance to impress in-front of the Town fans for the first time later.

Familiar Faces:

In addition to seeing the new signings on show, Town fans will also get to see some of their old favourites strut their stuff.

Lawrence Vigouroux is expected to start in goal and the likes of John Goddard, Tom Smith, Conor Thomas and Luke Norris should also get run-outs too.

Match Information:

Kick-Off is at 3pm today and tickets are available to buy on the turnstiles.

It is £8 for adults and free entry for U11’s.
