Town Pride Given A Buffing This Bright & Shiny Afternoon

With the state of Swindon's Union in doubt this week after the tense recount problems of the local elections, at least 28 percent of the Borough was worried about who are governing officials were.

For the remaining 72 percent and those who knew how to relax, Swindon Pride was given a much needed bump this afternoon as Swindon Town FC drew one all with Walsall which gives Swindon automatic promotion to league one for next season.

Tickets had sold out mid-week for the crutial match, giving a capacity crowd of over 14,000 at the County Ground to ring out the end of a successful season for Town.

Swindon Centric Says ; It says something for town pride and community spirit when people fill the County Ground (which hasn't happened for a while) to cheer Swindon Town onto promotion on a Bank Holiday weekend. Shame we can't do it again tomorrow, instead of shopping for sofas or garden furniture. You know that's what you'll end up doing people!
