Robins play on County Ground Pitch!

5 lucky Robins players got to play on the County Ground pitch on Saturday at half-time in the Swindon Town v Plymouth League 2 clash, in front of a bumper crowd of 10,422.

Tom, Zak, Sam and Josh from the Under 7s and Ethan from the Under 6s all attended the recent Swindon Town Football in the Community courses over the Easter Holidays and were all in the same group. Their group was voted "Group of the Week" by the coaches and as a reward the whole group got to play a mini-game on the pitch at half time in the Plymouth game. As this was expected to be a promotion game, there was a good gate and the children all took full advantage. They all gave a good account of themselves and more importantly had a great time, a special treat they can always remember.

Not many 6 and 7 year old players can claim to have played on a League ground at all, much less in front of a crowd of 10,000 - well done boys!
