Swindon struggled during the curtailed 2019/2020 Season, finishing bottom of the Division, but Jamie Davies’ side have made an impressive start to the New Season.
It was certainly a high turnover of players during the summer months as the Robins made the recruitments required to improve on the previous years showing. Lucy Scrannage, Briony Hud, Jess Graham and Emma Skinner all returned to Cinder Line as the arrivals for the new season had a familiar feal to them.
The Return of 2016 Championship winner Meg Attenborough was a capture that particularly pleased Davies, Attenborough had been away studying at a University in Hawaii and her quality will be a big factor in the Team’s success. Annie Martin was another close season coup for Town, as leading goalscorer for Cheltenham Town last season, she should add goals to the team and, alongside fellow signings, Katie Wells, Hannah Peachey and Sophie Mitchell, give a fresh look to the side as they take to the field this year. Martin will be a particular cause for concern as her hat trick for Cheltenham Town knocked City out of the FA Cup last season at the final qualifying round.
Swindon started with a disappointing defeat to Chesham United, but the side have certainly picked up since, with three wins on the bounce. An Home win over Cheltenham Town was followed by victories against Larkhall Athletic and Brislington Ladies.
This run of good from has seen Jamie Davies’ new look side leapfrog City and climb to third place in the National League. City and Swindon contested a closely fought meeting last season, the Grecians winning 3-1, and this Sunday promises to be another tight encounter and one not to be missed.
