A Charlton Athletic view on new signing Alan McCormack

Swindon Town are set to further bolster midfield options with the signing of Alan McCormack. The 27 year old Irishman has left Charlton Athletic by mutual consent and had his ear bent by a persuasive Paolo Di Canio, convincing the former Southend United player to step down to League Two, at least for one season.

2010 STFC Review: November

November was a hectic month with 7 games in League and Cup. As the month started, ‘The Washbag’ looked back 2 years to the end of Maurice Malpas’ tenure at Town.

2010 STFC Review: May

I don’t suppose you need much reminding what occurred in May. It was a truly memorable month and culmination to the season of many moments of agony and ecstasy.

Reactions to Town v Millwall Play-Off Final

Swindon Advertiser sister website thisislondon.co.uk gave a first reaction yesterday direct from Millwall boss Kenny Jackett to the League One Play-Off Wembley encounter at the end of May. Millwall have a unenviable play-off record with five failed attempts to gain promotion, whereas Town’s 100% record (3 wins from 3 games) at Wembley is now at stake. Jackett has also been involved

WEM-BER-LEY WEM-BER-LEY!! Town Beat Charlton On Penalties

There is definitely something about the Play-Offs. There is no more satisfying way to experience being promoted than through the annual end of season fight for promotion, which Swindon have previously won in 3 of 4 attempts. Whilst we are not in the Championship just yet, we now are potentially 90 minutes away from the second tier of English football for the
