Swindon Town have added to their goalkeeping options with the signing of Reice Charles-Cook.

The talented stopper arrives on a permanent transfer from Coventry City and has put pen to paper on a one-year deal, subject to EFL and FA approval.

Charles-Cook arrives at The County Ground as competition for Lawrence Vigouroux and he will wear the number 21 shirt this season.

Beginning his career with Premier League side Arsenal, the 23-year-old had short spells with Chelmsford City and Bury before joining Coventry in 2014.

He went on to make over 50 appearances for the Sky Blues and featured on 22 occasions last term, while he became the first City keeper to keep clean sheets in his first four league games.

Charles-Cook also set a club post-war record for the most consecutive minutes without conceding a goal.

His fine form saw him rewarded with a new contract but he has now joined the Dave Flitcroft era at Town and, speaking exclusively to, he revealed his sheer delight at signing for The Reds.

“I’m absolutely buzzing to have signed here,” he said.

“I’m over the moon and Swindon Town is a massive club.

“It shouldn’t be in League Two and it is a massive achievement on my behalf to sign for this football club.

“My first day training with the boys was excellent and I’m looking forward to the season ahead and helping us achieve promotion.”

Charles-Cook becomes our third addition of Deadline Day following the arrivals of Timi Elsnik and Kellan Gordon on season-long loan deals from Derby County.
