GOALKEEPER Stuart Moore is part of boss Phil Brown’s plans at Swindon Town this season, despite still not agreeing a new contract to remain.

Moore, 23, kept three clean sheets in 10 appearances for Town last season – enough to convince Brown to offer the shot-stopper a new contract.

However the Sandown-born keeper is yet to reach an agreement with the club, though he has accepted Brown’s invitation to continue training with the squad while negotiations continue.

With Lawrence Vigouroux due back in next week after a loan spell at Waterford, the addition of Moore would grant Brown three goalkeeping options, with Will Henry also available.

Brown said: “I’ve asked Stuart to come into training.

“There’s nothing worse when anybody – and that means goalkeepers, strikers, old, young – misses pre-season. It’s of no benefit to the individual or the football club.

“Stuart has shown me a great attitude, and he always has. The two goalkeepers today (Moore and Henry) will be joined by Lawrence Vigouroux on Monday to make it three.

“In an ideal world, I’d like to keep all three of them, that would allow us to have a young, dynamic and positive group. And I want Stuart to be involved in that.”

Meanwhile, Brown revealed that Northern Irish defender Ryan McGivern will not return to Swindon Town next season after confirming to the Advertiser that the contract offered to him is no longer available.

It means just two of the six players offered contracts by Brown at the end of last season have agreed to remain at the club – those being Matt Taylor and Joe Romanski.

Despite this, Brown said he is actively seeking centre halves – adding he hopes to add one or two to the club very soon.

He said: “We’ve gone past the sell by date and that contract (for Ryan McGivern) is no longer on the table.

“We’re actively seeking centre halves to come into the football club, and hopefully we’ll have one or two in very soon.”
