Swindon Town have bolstered their squad with the addition of young Irish goalkeeper Conor Brann.

The 19-year-old was a free agent after being released from Galway United, who ply their trade in the League of Ireland First Division.

The stopper played schoolboy football with his local side Salthill Devon before heading to the Athlone Town academy at 14 where he appeared for their Under-15s in 2018.

He then made the switch to Limerick to play Under-17s football before heading to Galway as the clubs Under-19 keeper, where he made his mark with some impressive displays.

This lead to call-ups to the Republic of Ireland national youth setup to train with the Under-19s in several UK based training camps.

Town First-Team Coach, Scott Lindsey, said: “He’s a quality keeper and we have really high hopes for him, so it’s great he’s now part of our squad.

“He’s a gifted lad with a great attitude. He trains well and has huge potential, and I believe we can play a huge part in his development moving forward.”

Town Technical Director, Sandro Di Michele, said: “Conor is a young goalkeeper with a lot of talent and is an exciting one for the future.

“He has huge potential and I’m looking forward to seeing him grow here at the football club.”
