An opening day 3-0 away defeat up in Harrogate was followed by a battling 0-0 draw at home with Salford last weekend for this weekend's visitors, with the Robins reduced to ten men when Harry McKirdy was sent off just before the break.

Tuesday night took them to Walsall in the Carabao Cup, and that was a game that had all sorts going on, with a controversial penalty decision, a red card on his professional debut for Harrison Minturn, and two late goals for the Saddlers that secured their progression. 

Last season, of course, ended in dramatic fashion with Swindon losing out to Port Vale in the play-off semi-finals, with the double-header going all the way to penalties.

Transfer activity started very soon after the exit from the promotion chase with long-serving captain Dion Conroy a surprise departure. Midfielders Ryan East and Jayden Mitchell-Lawson were also shown the door, as was goalkeeper Emmanuel Idem.

Director of football Ben Chorley left the club at the end of May, and the club promoted assistant manager Scott Lindsey to head coach following the departure of Ben Garner to Charlton Athletic. 

His first act was to sign former Leicester City winger Tyrese Shade on a two-year deal, and Middlesbrough goalkeeper Sol Brynn on a season-long loan.

Left back Reece Devine penned for two years from Manchester United, and centre back Cian Harries joined for a year.

Ciaran Brennan was another to come on-loan, his parent club is Sheffield Wednesday, and striker Jacob Wakeling left Leicester to team up with the Robins.

There was more to come as Liverpool defender Tom Clayton signed for two years, and midfielder Ronan Darcy came in from Bolton. 

Three more entered the building in the middle of July in the form of midfielder Saidou Khan, defender Remeao Hutton and striker Tomi Adeloye.

Defender Angus MacDonald completed the list of incomings after being released by Rotherham. He agreed a two-year contract.

who watch

Attacking midfielder Tyrese Shade gained a god reputation at Leicester, and enjoyed a good loan spell with Walsall through the second half of last season.

Creative, and a real presence, he's our weekend one to watch.

FA Cup








United fell to a 3-0 home defeat in February 2022, with second half goals from Josh Davison and Louie Barry complementing the first half opener from Harry McKirdy. Manager Keith Millen left the club the following week.

Watch the highlights from that game here:

The Cumbrians bagged a win from their first away game of the 2021/22 season. Joe Riley set the tone with an early goal, but Romoney Crichlow-Noble levelled it up on the half-hour. Tristan Abrahams regained the lead just before the break, and that was that for the scoring. Kaine Hayden received a second yellow and his marching orders in time added on.

Watch the highlights from that game here:

United and Swindon locked horns in February 2020 at Brunton Park and they couldn't be separated as an early goal from Rarmani Edmonds-Green was cancelled out in the second half by Aaron Hayden.

Watch the highlights from that game here:

It feels like an age since United were at the County Ground in August 2019 for what turned out to be a game crammed with goals and incidents. A nip and tuck first half brought little of note, but that changed after the break when Olufela Olomola gave the away side the lead. Jerry Yates, Zeki Fryers and Kaiyne Woolery flipped the game on its head as the Robins roared into the lead, and the afternoon got tougher for United when Canice Carroll was sent off late in the day. Mo Sagaf bagged his first for the club in time added on, but the home side held on to take the win.

Our referee for this game is Mr Andrew Kitchen. He has been in charge of two games so far this season showing eight yellow cards and one red.
We first met him in October 2021 for our home game against Tranmere. A Rod McDonald own goal separated the teams on the day, and Zach Clough went in the book for the Blues.
He was here again in February 2022 when we lost 3-1 to promotion chasing Port Vale. Owen Windsor equalised after Dave Worrall had given the visitors the lead, but James Wilson and David Amoo added to the goals to secure the away victory. There were no names taken on the day.
