Another signing for the romans is ex Swindon Town Will Henry. As Swindon Supermarine are now coming to the end of their pre season friendlies in preparation of the start of the league next week. Lee Marshall signing a second stint at the club for the new season and should be a good challenge playing against his old club Bath City.

A tough game for marine but kept their form well against a higher league team pushing for promotion. A high paced game from the off with both sides causing problems with each other. Some great runs from the marine side catching the romans off guard as fast paced Ryan Campbell belts down the wing.
