Swindon Town have tied up a deal for Banbury United winger Morgan Roberts.
The 21-year-old joins on a permanent deal from the National League North side and becomes our fifth signing on deadline day.
Roberts joined Northampton Town’s youth academy in 2009 and was promoted to their first-team nine years later, making his professional debut in May 2018 as he featured in a draw against Oldham Athletic.
He penned a new deal at Sixfields before heading out on loan to the likes of Rushden & Diamonds, Banbury United and Brackley Town, before rejoining Banbury in July 2021 on a permanent deal.
Last term he netted ten times in 27 appearances, attracting the attention of Town who have been closely monitoring his progress this season.
Speaking to Town’s Media Team after the move was confirmed, Morgan said: “I’m really happy. It’s all been very quick on deadline day but it’s great to be here.
“I’ve come through the academy at Northampton Town and played a few games for them, but have lots of non-league experience and it’s taught me a lot. It’s given me the belief that I can come back to full-time football and it’s an exciting new chapter for me.
“I’m very energetic and creative. I love to get goals and assists and I want to win. I’ve come from a team that has just won the league, so I want to continue that form and show everyone what I can do here at The County Ground.
Town Technical Director, Sandro Di Michele, said: “Morgan is a really interesting signing for us and is an extremely talented young player.
“He’s proved himself in the non-league environment and is definitely one for the future. He’s got an interesting profile and it’s one that fits the Swindon project, so it’s going to be fascinating to see him develop.”
