Both Chesterton and Swindon also had new leagues to look forward to in the 2021-22 season, Swindon winning promotion to the Premier League and Chesterton moving to a new league all together, the Gloucestershire Northern Senior League Division 2. Both moves were the equivalent of one step up the ladder.
On a personal note, all five games in which I saw Swindon play were highly entertaining. The club was always happy to share their team sheet with me and the genuinely seemed to be a good bunch. They had a good side too, and there's no doubt that their players will be picked up by other teams around the area. I do hope that no other Swindon & District sides follow The Maroons and 'Rop out of the door. Last Summer's trips down the A420 were great fun and I am hoping to take in more SDFL games whenever possible.
