STFC: Town and Supermarine Progress

In what is a historic day for football in the town of Swindon. Both Swindon Town and Swindon Supermarine progressed into the Second Round of the F.A. Cup.

Although faultering in League One, Town recorded a comfortable and dominant 4-0 victory over fellow League One strugglers Plymouth Argyle.

First half goals from Plymouthian Sean Morrison and Charlie Austin along with two more in the second half from former Argyle loanee Vincent Pericard and Vital Swindon Player of the Month Matt Ritchie gave town access to the next round.

Meanwhile, Southern League Premier Division outfit Swindon Supermarine recorded a historic 2-1 home victory over Eastwood Town of the Conference North.

The Marine goals came from former Town youngster Ashan Holgate and Ben Wells.

The young goalkeeper is Danny Wilson's 4th choice and is currently on loan to Supermarine from Town.

10. Chris Taylor

Once a major hope for Town, Taylor emerged into the first team set-up in 2003 when Andy King gave him his big opportunity.

Taylor made four substitute appearances before disappearing from view. He was eventually released in 2006 without adding to his first team outings.

14. Sam Morris

Was a professional with Swindon Town for a year but never made it into the first team set-up. He was released in the Summer of 2009.

15. Justyn McKay

Another former youth. McKay flirted with the senior side but never made the grade. He was released by Town in December 2007.

18. Luke Hopper
