STRIKER Jermaine Hylton's departure from Swindon Town has been confirmed with the 24 year old signing for National League side Solihull Moors.

The Birmingham-born frontman has dropped back down to the non-league, where he will link up with Liam McDonald, with whom he worked for three years at Redditch United before signing for Town in January 2015.

Hylton endured a difficult time at the County Ground and, having spent a period of last term on loan at National League outfit Guiseley, his time at the County Ground looked short when he was fined for his walkout at Northampton Town on Valentine’s Day.

Hylton said: “Liam McDonald is a good manager and plays a style of football which suits me perfectly. It is my hope to score many goals for both him and Moors.

“I now want to score bags of goals and be part of a successful Solihull Moors team”

McDonald added: “This is a massive signing. Jermaine is a quality goal scorer who needed a change after Swindon’s relegation to League Two last season and despite considerable interest from Football and National League clubs, has bought into our vision here at Moors and wants to be part of it. He has impressed in training and at Barwell this week.

"He came to Redditch having played Sunday League with Continental Star and I believe he will be the best striker in non league football.

"He is always a threat and defenders find it hard to read his game. He had a few games last season with Guiseley and knows what to expect in the National League.”

"He wants to eventually return to the Football League and the best way for him to do that is to be successful here. He is a great addition to the squad and will score goals”
