JOJO WOLLACOTT RETURNS ON PERMANENT DEAL

Swindon Town are delighted to announce the permanent signing of goalkeeper Jojo Wollacott from Bristol City. The deal is subject to EFL and FA approval.

The 24-year-old returns to the County Ground on a one-year deal, having played two games last season for the Town on an emergency goalkeeper loan contract.

His debut was one to remember in a 2-1 win over Crewe Alexandra where he pulled off an acrobatic save to keep the Reds in the game.

Unfortunately for Wollacott, he picked up a slight injury in the warm-up against Northampton and was subsequently sent back to his parent club.

Wollacott believes that already being at the club, albeit for a few games, had a part to play in capturing his signature permanently:

"I'm much more at ease now! It's something I've been thinking about for a while now and it's definitely the right decision for me."

"The Gaffer is ambitious and the most important bit is when you have a manager that believes in your ability, it take the pressure off you a little bit."

When asked about 'that' save against Crewe, Jojo said:

"I think if I can emulate those performances, I'm sure it'll contribute to a successful season."

We’re very pleased to have Jojo back with us at Swindon and look forward to his involvement next season.
