Ward, an experienced campaigner with over 400 league starts to his name, has signed a loan deal with Swindon until January 2013 and is eager to play his part in helping the club work towards success.
“I wanted a challenge and this is something I can get my teeth into,” he told STFC Player on Thursday evening, shortly after putting pen to paper.
“After meeting the manager and hearing the plans he has and how things operate here, I was very interested in joining. He spoke about certain training techniques and how players look after themselves here and it’s something I want to be associated with.”
He continued: “There was quite a bit of interest from other clubs but this was the place for me. I am delighted to have signed and I am looking forward to starting here.
“At Swindon there seems to be a very good team spirit at the minute and it’s a club on the up.”
