Swindon Town defender Mathieu Baudry has extended his stay at the County Ground, signing a one-year contract at SN1 which will keep him at the club until the end of the forthcoming 2022/23 EFL Sky Bet League Two campaign.

The experienced Frenchman made 17 appearances for Town last season with some impressive displays as the club narrowly missed out on a Wembley play-off showdown.

He also recorded his first goal in a Swindon shirt back in April in a 3-0 victory away at Hartlepool United.

Baudry joined Swindon back in June 2019 following his release from Milton Keynes Dons, and is just shy of 50 league appearances for Town.

Speaking to the club’s Media Team, the 34-year-old says the appointment of new First-Team Head Coach, Scott Lindsey, played a key role in his decision to prolong his stay at SN1.

“I’m delighted to be staying at this great club for another season, and Scott stepping up as Head Coach made my decision a lot easier. I’ve loved working with him during my time here and many won’t realise just how much of an important role he played in us reaching the play-offs last season.

“Having that continuity with Scott in charge is vital. I’m really excited to go again and want to do things right, and hope I can help take this club back to where it belongs.”

Town Technical Director, Sandro Di Michele, said: “Mathieu is a key figure at this football club and I’m incredibly excited he’s chosen to continue his journey with us for another season. It was really important for everyone at the club he stayed to help drive us forward.”

Newly-appointed First-Team Head Coach, Scott Lindsey, added: “I’m delighted Mathieu has agreed to stay with us for another year and he’ll play an integral part in what we are trying to achieve here.

“The personality, passion and experience he brings to the dressing room and out on the pitch is invaluable.

“He also has great leadership qualities too, so it was really important we did all we could keep him here.”
