Ryan East signed for Swindon Town on the eve of the 2021-22 EFL Sky Bet League Two season.

A cultured midfielder who has excellent ability on the ball, the 23-year-old rose through the ranks at Reading FC and was an integral part of their Academy setup.

He was the only ever-present for the U23s in 2017-18 as he featured in the PL2, the Premier League International Cup and the Checkatrade Trophy, while he was nominated for the PL2 Player of the Month in September 2018.

East impressed so much that he earned a call-up to the first-team squad and was an unused substitute in the Royals' Emirates FA Cup tie against Manchester United at Old Trafford in January 2019, although he went on to make his first-team debut for Reading two months later against Leeds United.
