Swindon Town have completed their second signing of the day with Olly Lancashire becoming the latest to sign on at the County Ground.

The 28-year-old centre-back has become the fifth addition in the space of a week and joins on a free transfer from League One side Shrewsbury Town, subject to FA approval.

New manager David Flitcroft has wasted no time assembling his squad for Town’s League Two challenge, following the arrival of Chris Robertson, James Dunne, Paul Mullin and Ben Purkiss this week.

After starting his career at Southampton, where he made 13 appearances, Town’s latest recruit has previously played for Walsall and Rochdale, where gained promotion from the bottom tier in 2013/14 however, his last competitive fixture came on January 2.

Following his release from the Shropshire side, the defender admits he is looking forward to linking up with Flitcroft.

“I’m very happy to be here,” he said.

“I knew about the interest a couple of weeks ago, it took a while to sort out my situation at Shrewsbury but I’m delighted to be here now and I’m looking forward to getting started this week.

“The gaffer himself and the plans to get promoted at the first attempt were both big factors for me in coming here.

“The gaffer has worked at this level before and he’s been successful and it is very exciting to be part of the whole environment that he wants to build here.

“You want to win silverware as a footballer and the last time I was in League Two I won promotion with Rochdale, so I’ll be looking to do the same here.”

Swindon were back in for pre-season earlier this week and Town’s latest recruit is looking forward to the grind at Beversbrook Sports Facility in the coming days. “I had a week of training with Shrewsbury last week and I’ve got a good bit of training in the legs, so hopefully I’ll be ready to go,” he added.

“I can’t wait to meet all the lads and get cracking.”
