Murray Set for Wembley Final
Wednesday, 8th Feb 2012 09:23
On-loan striker Ronan Murray came on as an 84th minute sub as Swindon secured their place in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final at Wembley with a 1-0 victory over 10-man Barnet at the County Ground last night. Former Blues Academy frontman Alan Connell netted the game’s only goal after 17 minutes to win the two-legged southern area final 2-1 on aggregate.
Murray is on loan with the Robins for the rest of the season, having recently put pen to paper on a Blues contract which will keep him at Portman Road until the end of June 2013.
Manager Paul Jewell told the club site that everyone at Portman Road is pleased for the 20-year-old: "Ronan has benefited from going out on loan at Swindon and we're delighted for him.
"He's playing games that really count, week-in, week-out and that's what he needs at this stage of his career."
Swindon will take on Chesterfield, who beat Shefki Kuqi’s Oldham in the northern area final, in the final on Sunday 25th March.

More Marmite than Marmite - an Evening with Roy Keane by Superfrans
Whether Roy Keane should go down in history as the worst manager to helm Ipswich Town is an arguable point - but it is hard to dispute that he is the most divisive Town employee in the club's 136-year history.
A Moment With Roy in Sainsbury's by TimS
It had been a relentless week at work with endless emails, continuous meetings and a phone that never stopped ringing. Come 5.15pm on Friday, I needed to do some shopping and I did not quite have the energy to drag myself around the aisles.
When The Keane Machine Broke Down by Pessimistic
The American journalist and satirist Ambrose Bierce once said that in each human heart there is a tiger, a pig, an ass and a nightingale and the diversity of character is due to their unequal activity. I suppose in the sad case of Roy Keane we were left with a bit of an ass who turned out to be pig ignorant!
