SWINDON Town defender Paul Caddis has become the first player in Swindon Town history to win the League Two title twice.

The fans' favourite, 32, rejoined the club permanently in November thanks to the intervention of star striker Eoin Doyle.

Caddis said: “I’m very good friends with Doyle, I’m really close with him and I’m in close contact.

“He spoke to the manager and he said ‘no problem, get him in, get him training’.

“After the first day, to be fair to the manager, he pulled me aside and said 'you’re in unbelievable shape what is it you’ve been doing?' He said right now they don’t have any money but he guaranteed he wanted me here.

“And just to hear that after six months was nice. I trained for a couple of days before the Plymouth game but then it went quiet for about a week or so because they had no money, basically.

“Then before the Salford game he asked if I could come down and said ‘we’ve got pennies for you but come in until January, get yourself in the team and we’ll take it from there’ and I’ve not looked back.”

Caddis, who was part of Paolo di Canio's class of 2012, added: “It’s an absolute honour and to make history at the club.

“When you’re young and want to become a footballer and you want to leave your mark.

“You want to try and win things and leave a good impression, luckily enough I’ve got a great relationship with this club, the supporters and the people behind the scenes so I’m absolutely privileged to have won two titles.”
