Scott Lindsey makes admission around Swindon Town’s summer transfer business



Swindon Town head coach Scott Lindsey says he is delighted with the signings the club have made in the summer transfer window so far.

Lindsey only took charge of first-team earlier this month, stepping up from his assistant role to replace Ben Garner following his move to Charlton Athletic.

But despite only being in the job a matter of days, Lindsey has wasted little time in adding to his first-team squad.

Can you get 28/28 on this Swindon Town quiz?

In what year were Swindon Town formed?

Wingers Oscar Massey and Tyrese Shade, left-back Reece Devine and centre back Cian Harries have all joined permanently on free transfers, after leaving Plymouth, Leicester, Manchester United and Bristol Rovers respectively.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Sol Brynn has also joined the club, completing a season-long loan move from Championship side Middlesbrough.

Now it seems as though Lindsey is more than happy with the signings his side have made so far, although he is aware that more recruits will be needed.

Speaking about the Robins’ business in the transfer window, the 50-year-old told Swindon’s official website“I’m delighted with the players we’ve managed to bring in so far. Each one has their own qualities which helps add a different dimension to the team, and hopefully they can all hit the ground running.

“Oscar is a young kid with great ability, Tyrese and Reece bring with them pace and experience playing in League Two in the same side, while Sol is a talented young goalkeeper who is keen to develop and prove himself in this division, so we’ve managed to bring in a good mix so far.

“We are working hard behind the scenes to secure the services of some of our current players, but these things do take time unfortunately.

“We are under no illusion we need to strengthen the squad further if we are to compete, and work is ongoing to bring in some more.”

The Verdict

This does feel like a rather exciting update from a Swindon Town perspective.

Having gone so close to promotion from League Two last season, only to miss out in the play-offs, the pressure will have been on Swindon to get things right in the market so they can go one better next season.

That will not have been made any easier by the departure of Garner, as well as the likes of Mandela Egbo and Joe Wollacott, who have followed him to Charlton.

Swindon though have moved quickly to ensure they are still adding to their squad, and with work still to be done, this summer window could set-up a rather exciting 2022/23 campaign at The County Ground.
