I would say a lot of oxfordshire towns, with swindon postcodes, support Oxford. Not sure why.

Oxford have a lot of influence on local schools, ie. Shrivenham, where they run football after school incentives. With Swindon a lot closer, you have to ask yourself why. Do the club do enough out of town?

Sippo, i think you're wrong. Shrivenham a Swindon strong hold with Mr Forty and his boys. They hate Oxford. I was bought up in Faringdon, another Swindon strong hold for Swindon. No Oxford fans there when i lived there.

Born in Berlin. Doubt there were m(any) Town fans around, unless they were stationed there.
Then lived in Hong Kong (See above).
Holland  (See above).
Tidworth (Maybe some there, although I never knew any at the time).
 Andover (There's a few there, including my brother in law). Arborfield (None).
Borden (None).
Barnstaple (None).
Croyde (None).
Bristol (None, funny that..).
Aubagne, France (None).
Nimes, France (None).
Swindon. (Shitloads).
Bicester. (A few).
Brackley. (One that I knew of).
Chalfont st Peter. (None).
Hayes, Middx. (None).
South Petherton, Somerset. (Two! and one pox fan).
Alderholt, Fordingbridge. (Two!).
Now back in Swindon.



There were two in Alderholt  (80s/90s) when me and our brother played for the mighty Stockton and Codford there.

Grew up in Codford, South Wilts....6 of us and a few more in Warminster, including a fella,who I'm proud to say is still my mate. He took his mum home and away every week....Carlisle, Sunderland....the lot... Mum passed years ago but he still goes to the home games.

Border country so there were Shitheads, Gas and Saints but mostly 'followers of big clubs'.

Live in Calne now..... Route 55 and all that...
