GALLERY: Gothia Cup, Day One Review

Swindon Town Football in the Community began their Gothia Cup campaign in Sweden in some style as all three teams won their opening matches.

The Under 16 Boys got the winning run going when they beat Swedish side Arboga Sodra 5-0.

Rich Murphy got Town off to a flying start when he scored on three minutes, scrambling the ball home from a corner.

Charlie McCuish doubled Town’s lead on eight minutes courtesy of a fine finish before Jack Tyson made it 3-0 on 14 minutes.

Ryan Sutton then grabbed two quick goals in the second half as Swindon romped to a 5-0 success to top their group after one game.

Swindon’s Under 16 Girls were next up and they hit four goals against another Swedish side, Rodeby AIF.

Sophie Roberts was the star of the game for Swindon’s U15 Girls as she fired a superb hat-trick.

Emily Arrell scored the fourth goal in a 4-1 win which saw each and every player play their part.

Town’s Under 15 Boys, playing in the Boys 16 category, also won as they beat Swedish outfit Lindome GIF 1-0.

Daniel Clare got the only goal of the game in the first half but in truth, Swindon could and should have won by more in what was a fine performance.
