Hardenhuish Park, Chippenham
Tuesday 18 December 2007
Swindon Town become the second club from Swindon to take on Chippenham Town in three days as Swindon Town head to Hardenhuish Park in Chippenham tomorrow to play Chippenham Town in the Wiltshire Premier Shield semi-final.
'I know the managers are going to be disappointed because they have worked hard for us all week but after that performance, none of us can hide anywhere.'
Swindon Town captain Hasney Aljofree
Chippenham Town will be no push overs. For the last 3 seasons Chippenham Town have been near the top of the Southern League. Chippenham currently sit top of the table with 35 points, just above Kings Lynn on goal difference. Chippenahm Town were almost promoted to the Conference South however they lost in the Southern League final to Hednesford Town during the 2004/05 season. Former Town player Luke Hopper will be looking to show his former club Swindon Town that they made a mistake by releasing him.
Chippenham's very own Super Sammy scored 2 goals to give Chippenham a 2-0 win over Town's neighbours Swindon Supermarine Saturday at Hunts Copse. Sam Allison used to play for Swindon Town and Bristol City's youth teams before heading to Salisbury City. Allison has six caps for England Under 18's schoolboys and played for British Coleges Under 19's.
Town will announce a very strong team for this fixture with most of the first team making the trip. Miguel Comminges, Ady Williams, Jerel Ifil, Jamie Vincent; J-P McGovern, Lee Peacock, Steve Adams, Sofiene Zaaboub; Andy Caton, and Billy Paynter are all expected to feature. Mauro Almeida and Ibon Arrieta who featured for the first team this season will also travel.
Swindon fans will be hoping that Vincent is at his best as Town face new injury concerns with Jack Smith and Hasney Aljofree picking up knocks on Saturday against Brighton.
Chippenham Town Facts: Chippenham are nicknamed The Chips, The Bluejays and The bluebirds. The Club was formed in 1873 before Swindon Town who formed in 1879 and play at Hardenhuish Park which has a capacity of 3,500. Adie Mings is the current manager of Chippenham Town.
If the news of Town's takeover is finally confirmed before this fixture we expect a comfortable win from Swindon Town given the fact most of the first team will be on hand.
