Haha. Fairford Town Tweeted me to encourage a proper away-day atmosphere. I'm tempted to actually organise a load of banners & whatnot. As we won't have many high attendance & high intensity away followings next season, it would be funny to start with the friendlies.

hahahah
That would actually be superb. Do it! Do it!

I think Fairford could benefit more from a few hundred from Swindon just attending the game and spending some beer tokens in their cosy clubhouse. It's a nice setup. Just right for a balmy summer's evening, leaning on the boundary rail with a pint.

When we took a mixed reserve / youth squad there a couple of years ago, FTFC didn't even charge an admission fee! I suggest they do so this time. We lost 3-1 (I think) with the referee doing a 'Clive Thomas' and blowing the final whistle while the ball was in flight from a Swindon corner. Odd thing to do in a friendly with no consequence to who won if a goal had been scored.

I suggest any further banners, streamers etc should be kept to competitive games. Although it would be good to have given Fenerbache a run for their money when they set off flares and fireworks galore at our friendly against them.

I think that would be great fun. I'll wait and see what our full fixture list is like before picking a game.

I was going moan about the lack of fixtures confirmed but then I recall that last summers were announced late/hastily arranged.

Petersfield Town - July 18.

Just checked their current fixtures and they come back from Asia tour Sat 25th July and they dont have another one until 1st Aug so suggests it will be a decent squad and not just yoof if and when it is confirmed.
