I remember that game and being caged in alongside their fans.
It was only later that we got the upper tier opposite.
Unless we can maintain the spirit and application shown on Saturday I fear that we will be playing them again next season.
Worst away day of my life, or any other life for that matter.
easy target practice for the Swindom scum. and lost 4-0 in the bargain, what was there not to like?
The only joy of the day was being at Swindon station, on the platform at the rear of the station, and seeing some Swindon lads giving us loads of abuse through the fence of the car park.
What they couldn't see, and we could, was the police van entering the car park behind them, and slowly advancing towards them. They couldn't work out why we were cheering during their abuse until it was too late.
