Nov 14 – Trust Family Day
First Trust Family Day sees a 1-0 win over Fleetwood Town; around 3,500 free tickets were distributed through the School partnership and the Stratton Bank was full with young Town fans.
We had originally agreed with the club somewhere in the region of 800-1,200 free tickets, but once the numbers started rolling in, we had to have some urgent further discussions as it would have been a real shame to have kids sat at home on the day.
It would have been easy for the club to reject our request, but Steve Anderson (general manager of Swindon Town) sat down with us and had a really proactive mindset.
We all agreed “let’s find a way to make this work”.
