They never had a ground and played all games as guests Reg winning most, I think in 1953 when beating Harwich and Parkeston Wembley was sold out (100,000)

Yes, still there.
Use to live next door to the Labour Club, round the back.
Cheap beer. Happy days. Not so good with that period coinciding with Headington United's rise through the divisions.

The much under rated Bristol based comedian Ian Cognito who died on stage in Bicester last night in the middle of his UK tour, a very funny man RIP Cogs.

It's a grand old team to play for, It's a grand old team to see, And if you know your history, It's enough to make your heart go whoa-oh, We don't care what the other teams say, What the hell do we care, For we only know that there's gonna be a show, And the Swindon Town will be there....

Yeah just saw that.  Very good and as you say much under rated.  I seem to remember his stuff from a cassette given away with select or one of those magazines that were trying to make comedy the new rock n roll.
