Positive Signs for Town Young Guns 

Swindon Town fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Premier League Southampton last night, but the signs were encouraging
 
RESULT: Swindon Town 0 Southampton 1
Southampton scorer: Jos Hooiveld (51)
 
Town continued their pre-season campaign at the County Ground last night with a narrow defeat to Premier League side Southampton.
 
This was the first domestic friendly for the South Coast outfit, and Dutch manager Ronald Koeman used it to focus on the next generation of players coming through the ranks. With the sale of their star players over the summer though, this was to be expected.
 
Swindon will also be relying heavily on its youngsters next season, and for the most part they held up admirably against last nights tricky opposition. Their workrate was particularly impressive, and it was only poor marking on a corner that led to the winner from Jos Hoovield on 51 minutes.
 
An equaliser almost came late on after a sustained period of Town pressure, with chances for Connor Waldon and George Barker, but it just wasn't to be.
 
Town manager Mark Cooper commented after the game "in the first half we had to keep our shape and not open up too much - we're struggling for defenders. Not a lot happened but in the second half we did quite well. I thought the kids made the difference, lightened the place up for us. Waldon, Marshall, Randall; they were a breath of fresh air again."
 
The next big friendly fixture sees Leeds Utd visit the County Ground on the 29th July.
