As fellow founder members of the Southern League, competitive matches against Southampton go back all the way to the 19th century - a strong Southampton St. Mary's club being significant in the formation of the league in 1894. Southampton won all of their first ten encounters against the Town - matches that included a 7-1 thumping in Swindon's first visit to the south coast, and an 8-2 embarrassment in the FA Cup in 1897. Over these ten games, the Town conceded 37 goals, scoring just nine in the process. Approaching the First World War though, the tables were completely turned, and it was Swindon's turn to inflict heavy defeats on the Saints - from 1909 through to the War, 6-0, 5-0, 5-1 and 4-0 wins were registered. Swindon travelled to Southampton on the last day of the 1964/65 season, in dire need of a result to save them from relegation to Division Three. At the start of the day, the Town sat one spot above the drop zone, above Portsmouth by virtue only of a slightly superior goal average. Missing Ernie Hunt through injury, Swindon went in at the break at 1-1, but conceded in the second half to lose the game 2-1. Bizarrely, the footballing authorities allowed Portsmouth's match against already promoted Northampton to take place later on the same day - knowing they needed a point to stay up, Pompey drew 1-1, relegating the Town in the process. After the illegal payments scandal of 1990, with the Town in financial trouble, Irish international and World Cup star Alan McLoughlin was sold to Southampton in December, for a then club record sale - and Swindon's first ever £1m transfer.
