LUKAS Jutkiewicz said a "perfect" farewell to Swindon on Saturday but immediately hinted that he'd love to return to the County Ground.

The 18-year-old striker (pictured) has signed for Premiership outfit Everton but Jutkiewicz, who played his own significant part in Town's promotion success, hopes it's not a final farewell.

"It was a perfect way to say goodbye," said Jutkiewicz. "It is quite emotional and there are mixed emotions.

"I'm pleased I had quite a part to play in the season, it's ended exactly how we wanted it.

"Hopefully this isn't the end, hopefully it's not my last time in Swindon."

Jutkiewicz revealed how he had to keep a lid on his excitement at joining The Toffees until Town secured promotion.

He did that and now he's excited about the future but he has not ruled out a loan move back to the County Ground.

"It is the last time I will be playing at Swindon for a while but hopefully there will be another chance to come back at some point," said Jutkiewicz.

"I'm obviously sad to go, a loan move would be perfect and it would be great to come back and see all the friendly faces again. I'd love to come back.

"I've been trying to hold it all in really until we sorted out promotion, that was my number one job but now we've done it I'm really excited."

"It is a very happy ending."

n BLAIR Sturrock is hoping he can extend his stay at the County Ground, despite admitting to added pressure playing for his father.

Since arriving in Wiltshire, Blair has made an instant impression and hopes his dad and Town manager Paul Sturrock will give him the chance to impress further.

He said: "I've done okay, I've played okay. I've played to a standard I am happy with. I've done my best.

"I think there's more to come.

"There is a bit of added pressure but I think it's more of a team thing. We done the job as a team and like I said it's a happy ending."

"We'll have to wait and see what happens. Obviously I'd like to stay but you never know."
