Hannah, who is an accomplished illustrator, born and raised in Wroughton said: “I wanted to celebrate local heroes in the mural, and just hoped fans would see it and like it enough to pass the word around.

“To have three Town legends, Don Rogers, Jon Trollope and Chris Kamara actually turn up to recreate their portraits was something I’ll never forget.”

Chris Kamara commented on the mural:
“It’s a real honour to be featured in this mural especially as I’m there with some real footballing legends.

“I am very proud to have been the first player of colour to represent Swindon Town in 1977 and to captain the club at the age of 21.

“I enjoyed two wonderful spells with Swindon Town, helping the club to two promotions and a League Cup semi-final, which will live long in my memory and means I have a real affinity with the supporters.

“My wife and two sons were born in Swindon and now I, too, have my own special place in the Town.”

Swindon Town, Chief Executive, Rob Angus commented: “The mural is a great celebration of the history of Swindon Town and it is fantastic to welcome one of our legends back into Town.

“Chris Kamara was a great player for us during his 2 spells with us, providing some great memories of cup runs and promotions.

“It’s a pleasure to have him back in Town and open this amazing mural.”
