Blogger Michael Pilcher yet again continues to tick off grounds with another 2-in-1 weekend.

Ground: The County Ground 69/92 Game: Swindon Town 1-0 Bristol City Date: 15/11/2014 As with my most recent ground hops this visit very much fell into the ‘bribery’ category with Mrs P. A work colleague originally from Swindon was having a 30th birthday party that just so happened to be taking place at the County Ground, on the same day as 3rd-placed Swindon Town were playing… Read more »
