Manager Richie Wellens is busy in the transfer market over the summer, shaping a squad capable of playing his preferred pressing style - and almost immediately there is a feel-good factor around the County Ground, as the Town make a decent start to the season, assisted by new loan signing Eoin Doyle netting seven goals in his first six games for the club. After a blip in September that lasts a month, both Doyle and the Town hit form - Doyle going on an incredible goalscoring run that sees him equal Harry Morris' club record of scoring in eleven consecutive matches, the Town winning seven on the bounce to go into the Christmas period at the top of the table. But - after netting the winner in a crucial victory at Plymouth - Doyle is recalled by parent club Bradford, and soon after, strike partner Jerry Yates' loan deal is also cut short - the Town managing to cling on to the top spot, before both players are re-signed at the end of the window ahead of a first versus second clash with Exeter. The signings capture the imagination of the Swindon support, and for the first time in years, the home end is sold out - the Town winning the match to go four points clear - and they remain top of the table throughout February, until a home defeat to Forest Green in early March saw Crewe take top spot on goal difference, having played a game more. Incredibly, that proved to be the last match of the season - prior to the Town's trip to Oldham the following weekend, the season is suspended due to a global coronavirus pandemic, and the remaining matches in the lower leagues are eventually cancelled. Three months after the final game, League Two clubs vote to utilise an average points per game method to resolve the final table - a decision that saw the Town crowned champions in the most bizarre circumstances.
