A popular figure at The County Ground, Jon Obika sealed a permanent switch to Wiltshire in 2014 having previously spent a short spell out on loan with The Reds.

The former Tottenham Hotspur forward was brought in to bolster Swindon's attacking options during the 2014/15 campaign and he certainly did just that, scoring in his first four games for The Reds to equal a record set by Town's all-time record goalscorer, Harry Morris in 1926.

Although injuries have restricted his progress at The County Ground, Obika is still a very dangerous finisher on his day and he finished the 2016/17 season as Town's top joint goalscorer with six strikes to his name.
