Swindon's first meetings with Palace came in the Town's only season in the United League in 1905/06 - since then, there have been many significant clashes between the two sides. In that same season, Palace entered the Southern League, and won promotion to Division One, a division they occupied with the Town until 1920, when both teams became founder members of the new Third Division of the Football League.

In 1910/11, the Town and Palace were vying for position at the top of the Southern League table. On 31st December, Swindon travelled to Sydenham for a top-of-the-table clash, the Glaziers scoring twice in the first five minutes to put Palace in control. The Town soon bounced back though, and went in at the break 3-2 up, eventually running out 5-2 winners. Swindon went on to win their first Southern League title, whilst Palace finished up in fourth place.

Over the years, Swindon have taken more than their fair share of beatings against Palace - losing 6-1 at home in that first United League encounter, 6-1 again in 1929, and 7-0 in 1935. The biggest defeat came during the transitional season after the War however, when a Town side sprinkled with guests succumbed to a 10-1 defeat - equalling Swindon's biggest defeat in a competitive match.

In November 1972, Palace manager and ex-Town boss Bert Head returned to Swindon to sign one of his former prodigies, Don Rogers, for 147,000. At the time, the fee broke the transfer record for both Palace and the Town.

In more recent times, another major encounter came in the 1988/89 season, when the two sides met in the Division Two play-off semi-finals. In a tight first leg at the County Ground, a Glyn Hopkins own goal gave the Town a 1-0 lead, but goals from Mark Bright and Ian Wright in the second leg at Selhurst Park handed Palace a 2-1 aggregate victory. They went on to beat Blackburn in the final to win promotion to Division One.
