Talking to fans new Chairman Jed McCory.

Swindon Town started the era of Jed McCory and managed by the playing duo of Tommy Miller and Darren Ward with a draw against a Preston North End side who were with new Manager Simon Grayson who was only appointed on Monday.

Adam Rooney pounces on a poor back pass for Swindon’s goal.

Two teams both playing under new regimes were destined for a draw and that’s what happened.

Adam Rooney scored with his first touch, he had been on the pitch less than 30 seconds as a substitute for Di Vita when pounced on a poor back-pass to settle a frustrated home crowd after a poor start to the second half.
Preston had earlier taken the lead when Swindon’s back-four switched off to allow Will Hayhurst grab an unexpected opener.
“We deserved at least a point after having the best chances,” declared co-manager Tommy Miller.

Rooney celebrates.

Final score 1-1.
