DION Donohue has vowed to hit the same heights as the last time he was at Swindon Town following his re-signing by manager Richie Wellens.

The 27-year-old was given his ‘very last chance in football’ by the Town boss on September 25 as Donohue signed a one-year deal at the County Ground following 11 months without a club.

The left-back’s last game for Town was in the 1-1 FA Cup draw away at Cheltenham Town on November 9, 2019.

But now back as a part of Swindon’s plans moving forward, the Welshman has promised to work hard every day to repay the faith his manager has shown in him.

Speaking on the Swindon Town Official Supporters Club Monday night panel – shown live on the group’s Facebook page – Donohue said: “I’m over the moon really to be here.

“The first game back in the EFL Trophy, I wasn’t too pleased with that personally or as a team, but I think on Saturday I did a bit better.

“I’m still trying to get back up to where I was before I had the 11 months out, but I think Saturday was a better performance from me. It doesn’t really matter though if you don’t win.

“But I’m glad to be back playing, and I’m going to be back working hard every day and in every game to get back to where I was the last time I was here.”

The Bodedern-born defender also discussed his appearance for Anglesey in the International Island Games, a bi-annual event that sees around 4,000 athletes from 24 islands compete in a mini-Olympics-type event.

Islands from around the world such as the Isle of Man, Gotland in Sweden, and Anglesey in the north-west corner of Wales all compete in a variety of sports to celebrate the best of island life.

Though Donohue was only 17 at the time, he fondly remembered his time representing Anglesey when the Isle of Wight hosted the games in 2011.

He said: “If I can remember correctly, I played for Anglesey in the Isle of Wight.

“I was only 17, so I missed out on the flipside – obviously, you want to go there to win, but it’s like a celebration of the islands so everyone mixes together after the games.

“I was obviously too young to get in anywhere, so I was just sitting in the caravan all night!

“But it was good to go and represent the island, and Anglesey managed to win the most recent football tournament.

“I was there watching the final because you’re not allowed to play as a professional, it’s only for semi-professional players or amateurs, but it was nice to see them do well.”
