Dream start! 

Town get 2008/09 season off to a flyer
 
RESULT: Swindon Town 3 Tranmere 1
 
Swindon scorers: B Paynter 4, S Cox 35, JP McGovern 51
Tranmere scorer: B Savage 85
 
Town got off to the perfect start with two goals in the first half - then wrapped up the game before the hour.
 
A confident Billy Paynter heading the first after only four minutes, following a flawless build-up and a pinpoint cross from JP McGovern.
 
STFC v Tranmere
How's that for starters:
Billy Paynter opens his account for the season
 
Anthony McNamee was the main tormentor with his trickery and skill causing havoc down the Tranmere left hand side.
 
Hard work that allowed Simon Cox the space to drill home the second on 35 minutes - and McGovern to smash home Town's third goal just after the break.
 
Despite a late consolation from Baz Savage the Town fans delight was all too evident.
 
"That was a fantastic start," a jubilant Maurice Malpas told SwindonWebTV after the game.
 
"I thought the front two were excellent today and I'm very happy that they both got their goal," added the boss.
