Swindon Supermarine today hosts Chippenham Town Fc in the pre season friendly.


With a small attendance after the coronavirus lock down it was nice to see the weekend faces smile and to hear the crowd again a sense of normality returning to the very game we love.

A volley of chances sets the pace for the Chippenham Town side as they look to dominate the first half, with a few chances as early play sees Hopkins take his chances but see the ball wide.
