Swindon Town are delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Joe Fryer on a short-term contract. The deal is subject to EFL and FA approval.
Fryer started his youth career with Middlesbrough at the age of 15 and has spent loan spells out at Hartlepool, Stevenage and Carlisle.
During his days at Carlisle, Joe suffered a leg break which has kept him out of action since 2018.
Although his contract has expired at The Riverside, the 24-year-old still continued his rehab with the Boro medical staff, working back to full fitness.
The keeper came on trial to the County Ground during pre-season and featured in a behind closed doors friendly against Brentford B, impressing manager Richie Wellens.
After signing with Town, Fryer said:
"I'm really excited to be here. I've trained here for a couple of days and the club said they want to sign me, so I said let's get something done."
"I spoke to Mildy, the goalie coach before I came here and straight away I liked the guy. I've played here before, I know the stature of the club, massive ground which is what drew me in."
"Training with the lads has been great, I've loved it and I've loved getting back into it. Hopefully we can have a good season and I'm really looking forward to it."
Everyone at Swindon would like to welcome Joe and we look forward to his involvement with the squad.
