SWINDON Town chairman Lee Power is delighted that Lawrence Vigouroux is proving his doubters wrong this season.

A risk was taken when Power brought goalkeeper Vigouroux to the club in the summer.

Town’s owner splashed out a reported £400,000 for the Liverpool stopper this summer, making Vigoruoux's move the most the club have paid for a player since Massimo Luongo and putting his fee in the top 10 shelled out by Swindon since they were in the Premier League.

As a result, many questioned the sanity of spending such a big fee on a goalkeeper but Vigouroux, 22, has picked up where he left off last season and has been one of Town's standout players in a difficult start to the season.

Two penalty saves in as many games against AFC Wimbledon and Rochdale highlighted his abilities and Vigouroux is fast becoming one of the best stoppers in League One.

With Swindon’s model centred on finding young talent, developing it and then selling at a profit, Power is delighted to see that his gamble has paid off but is yet to receive any offers for Vigrouroux, with head coach Luke Williams keen to continue nurturing him further at Swindon.

“I have had no phone calls,” Power told BBC Wiltshire.

“It raised a few eyebrows when we paid the money we paid for him. It is quite funny. A lot of the supporters seemed a bit ‘what are we spending our money on him for?’.

“Hopefully, now they can see why they spent that money.

“If you remember Wes (Foderingham) when he first came in, our goalkeepers have to be as good with the ball at their feet as making saves and coming for crosses.

"That is the way football has gone. He is your 11th man who can go out there and play with the ball.

“I think, as a goalkeeper, his shot-stopping, his crossing, his all-round confidence; he is one of those guys we knew would be a big investment for the football club and he is proving to be one.”
