ADVER Sport takes a look at notable events from this week in Swindon Town Football Club history.

1968: Wayne ‘The Chief’ Allison was born on October 16, 1968. After his controversial move from Bristol City and a difficult first season, Allison would go onto score 36 goals in 120 appearances.

1980: John Trollope sets the record for the most league appearances by one player for one club, appearing in his 765th match - a 1-1 draw against Carlisle.

1981: Swindon go top of Division Three - two Andy Rowland goals helping Town to a convincing 4-1 win over Rovers at Eastville.

1995: Joey Beauchamp signs for local rivals Oxford United in £75,000 deal. On his return to the County Ground a year later, Beauchamp is certainly not given a respectful welcome by players and fans alike, while a Kevin Horlock header is enough to give Town a derby victory.

2004: Christian Roberts is signed from Bristol City for £50,000. The winger went onto play 126 times for Town, scoring 27 goals.

2012: Major shareholder Andrew Black requests that chairman Jeremy Wray is replaced, with Sir William Patey taking over in order to find a buyer for the club.

2013: Town head up to Rotherham United - managed by Steve Evans - and put four past the Millers to secure an emphatic 4-0 victory and bag their first away win of the season. Goals from Alex Pritchard, Massimo Luongo, Nicky Ajose and Danny N’Guessan complete the rout.
