WITH 2017 thankfully coming to an end, it’s time to look back at Swindon Town’s highs and lows of the past 12 months.

Starting on a positive note, we can look to Yaser Kasim’s winning goal at Bolton, or Fankaty Dabo’s first professional goal with his stunner against Oxford as the best moment of the year.

But I’m going to cheat. Without one truly great moment in 2017 I’m going for Town’s overall away form this season.

Winning eight from 11 away matches is impressive at any level, the pick of the bunch being our 3-0 win over Luton Town in September.

When thinking about the worst moment of 2017 we could go for that Oxford derby defeat in February, or losing to Crawley and Barnet back-to-back with two of the worst home performances you’ll ever see.

The newest entry would be our 5-0 humiliation on Tuesday to champions-elect Luton Town – and we should include watching Town at the County Ground throughout the year, with just six wins to enjoy over the 12 months.

But in a year when your club is relegated that will always take the top spot. It’s an awful feeling you never want to experience again and, after a dreadful campaign from start to finish, no one was surprised when relegation was confirmed in late April.

Player of 2017 Town's number one Lawrence Vigouroux was hands down the reason relegation wasn’t confirmed much earlier last season, but there was one player who ruled the roost in all of his 14 games for the club.

Despite his short stay, Rohan Ince’s entire loan spell was a joy to behold and even more impressive knowing the lack of talent around him last season.

Worst Player of 2017 Former loan striker Islam Feruz isn’t necessarily a bad player, as he’s currently still on the books at Chelsea, but during his loan spell at the County Ground he failed to impress in any of his four appearances, not managing any goals or any attacking threat whatsoever.

Finally, I want to wish you a very Happy New Year.

Let’s hope David Flitcroft can turn things around at home in 2018 and deliver the promotion our club desperately needs.
