Shelbourne pre-season friendly

A small contingent of Swindon Town faithful made the trip across the Irish sea to watch the Town take on Shelbourne FC at Tolka Park.

Town looked very convincing, creating some great chances with a lot of flair. Brad Barry, Jermaine Hylton and Nathan Thompson (playing in midfield) were the stand-out performers in our eyes.

Hylton running their defenders ragged when he came on, Barry making some incredible runs down the right wing ending in some dangerous crosses while Thompson was in a midfield role protecting the defence whilst finding himself in the Shelbourne box on occasions.

It was a great opportunity to talk to some Town fans that are interested in what we're up to and we've learned a lot about what to take into the season ahead.

Well done to the Town fans that made the trip. There was a good group of around 50 fans being very vocal in the second half which made for a great atmosphere, especially as we were able to have a pint in the stand whilst watching the game.
