Just a few weeks after Swindon Town lifted the League Two trophy, three more trophies were presented just a few steps away.

Three teams from the Swindon Town College Programme, based at Commonweal C6, made it a historic season for the project after winning their respective leagues on a points-per-game system.

The number of wins means the programme is now the most successful in the country, beating Sheffield United’s record of two in one season.

Shane Hewlett, assistant head of the community foundation, said: “From our perspective we’re absolutely chuffed. We didn’t expect to be winning against teams like Millwall where they’re pretty tough.

“They’ve all worked really hard and trained hard.

"The new Foundation Park has become a bit of a fortress.

The programme allows 17 and 18-year-olds to develop their football skills while still studying for A-levels.

Shane added: “Academically they’re achieving too.

"We don’t lose any footballers because of deadlines because they know if they don’t finish their work then the school will contact us to say they can’t play.

“I don’t really fancy going to a game without a centre forward.

“We want parents to chose our programme because we’re a good footballing side but there’s a great emphasis on creating better people and making sure they have those qualifications that will stand them in good stead.”

Players were presented with the trophies and medals with help from Town midfielder Danny Rose.

And the first team assistant manager was on hand throughout the season to give advice to the players.

Shane explained: “We’ve had some good words of wisdom from assistant Noel Hunt who’s been giving us tips before big games.

“It was amazing really. It’s made us the most successful college club in the entire programme.”

“We’ve been able to train alongside the Swindon Town first team with Richie Wellens which is inspiring for any 18-year-old to be able to do that.”

Alongside the three trophies, the men’s first team was able to go their whole season unbeaten, taking on the likes of Norwich, Fulham and Brentford.

And the men’s second team went the season with only one defeat under their belts with the women’s team topping their league too.
