Swindon Town: The Fans' Choice

Swindon Town: The Fans' Choice

Vital Swindon Town would like to bring a new publication to Swindon Town fans` attention. Swindon Town: The Fans Choice.



Swindon Town: The Fans Choice, is written by Dave Wallis, Gazette and Herald columnist and match day programme contributor at Swindon Town F.C.

In this fascinating new book Dave takes a look at the winners of Swindon Town┬╣s Player of the Year award, sponsored by local newspaper the Swindon Advertiser, and bestowed at the end of every season by votes cast by the supporters themselves.

At the end of each football season, Swindon Town's supporters vote for the man they feel has been most influential on the outcome of the club's campaign. This fascinating book focuses on the individual deemed most instrumental to Swindon Town's fortunes of the previous ten months and his contribution to the trials and tribulations of the football club, it also gives a season-by-season account of STFC.

Starting in 1990 it charts the progress of a club constantly fighting the financial battle that supporters of all lower league football teams will be familiar with. Covering a period that sees the club rise to the highest division in the country before plunging to the basement, Swindon Town's endeavours epitomise the struggle that all clubs outside the upper echelons of the sport face.

Running chronologically, Swindon Town Football Club: The Fans' Choice forms a modern history of the Club. A club that has a loyal following who have grown accustomed to discovering a bad news story that threatens to undermine any progress being made on the pitch. Just like almost every other club.
