Torquay inflicted the Town's worst ever League defeat in 1952 - scoring nine goals without reply after Town keeper Norman Uprichard left the field with concussion in the first half. Right half Harry Kaye and left back Harry May both took turns in goal, but were powerless to prevent the Gulls notching up their huge total - despite Swindon beating Torquay in both the League and the Cup earlier in the season!

Fifteen years earlier, Swindon broke their record transfer fee to bring Ben Morton to the County Ground from Plainmoor - the striker becoming the club's first four figure signing. It took Morton until his twelfth game to score for the Town, when he netted against First Division Grimsby in the FA Cup.
