A host of former Swindon Town players and staff will be taking part in a behind-closed-doors charity match this Sunday, 2nd May 2021 – raising funds for the Prospect Hospice.

The inaugural Loathed Strangers' Shield match (KO 12pm) will feature a range of former Town players & management including:  

Rhys Evans, Ian Herring, Matt Heywood, Brian Howard, Noel Hunt, Jerel Ifil, Sam Parkin, Jamie Pitman, Phil Smith, Richie Wellens plus Honor Fraser and Gipsy Viveash of Swindon Town Women. 

Several special guests have also agreed to take part in the encounter, which will see a 90-minute match played at The Energy Check County Ground. Unfortunately there is no public access to the game due to current COVID restrictions.  

The match will be officiated by former Premier League referee Lee Probert, who took charge of the 2014 FA Cup Final.

It is anticipated the game will be streamed live with details of the stream made available closer to the time.
