SWINDON Town fans will have the chance to watch their team in action close to home for the first time in nearly six months on Tuesday.

A limited number of tickets are available for the pre-season clash at Melksham Town, which kicks off at 7.45pm.

Southern League outfit Melksham are allowed to have spectators in the ground after an easing of restrictions for clubs at Level 3 and below of the non-league pyramid last week.

There will be no admission to the ground or bar without a ticket on the night and those who do get their hands on one will be expected to follow the social distancing guidelines in place.

Tickets will be on sale from the SkyBar at Melksham Town FC on Monday (August 24) between 12 noon and 8pm.
