Sam Allen made one of the Town's best ever signings from Swansea in 1926 - paying the princely sum of 110 for striker Harry Morris. After scoring hat-tricks in his first two games for Swindon, Morris went on to bag 229 goals in the league and cup over the next seven seasons in just 279 matches - becoming the Town's top goalscorer of all time. In his first season, he also scored the most goals that a Swindon player ever scored in a season, netting 47 goals in 41 league matches - including a five goal haul against Q.P.R. in December, the first Town player to score five in one game. Morris repeated the feat three-and-a-half years later, when he scored five again against Norwich in 1930.

The signing of Morris came almost seven years after the clubs had met for the first time. Swansea joined the Southern League in 1912, but were not voted in to the First Division until it was extended to 22 clubs in 1919 - just in time for the formation of the Third Division of the Football League, which both sides joined the following year. The Swans won the first encounter by a goal to nil in October 1919, Swindon got their revenge the following February, winning 3-1 at the County Ground.
