SWINDON Town attacker Scott Twine says he sees no reason why he couldn’t drop down to League Two with his hometown club after a sparkling breakout season in professional football.

After struggling to find consistent opportunities under Richie Wellens at Swindon, Twine was loaned out to League Two Newport County where he shone under Exiles boss Mike Flynn.

The 21-year-old won a goal of the month competition while in South Wales as well as the hearts of many a Newport fan before returning to Wiltshire in January to aid Town’s fight against relegation to the fourth tier.

Although the team was unsuccessful in its main objective, Twine continued scoring and assisting for his boyhood team while rumours of a move to the Championship began to surface.

Twine’s contract runs out in the summer, therefore he could move on for free. However, the attacker has long maintained he would like to stay at Town and said it remains a possibility that he could sign a long-term deal.

Twine said: “I’m not thinking about my career right now, it’s six or so weeks until June so I’m going to focus on getting myself fit first.

“I don’t see why I couldn’t go back to League Two – I just love playing football.

“I’ve played a lot over the last year, and even though it’s been very frustrating because of where we are in the league, there’s nothing better than being on the pitch.

“There is something on the table that I’ve got to think about over the next few weeks. It’s not been a good season, but I enjoy it at Swindon, so we’ll see what’s going to happen.”

Twine ended the season with 14 goals and nine assists from his 49 appearances – an excellent return for a young attacker in his breakout campaign.

However, the Adver Sport player-of-the-season contender said the praise and stats mean almost nothing now that his team has seen relegation confirmed.

Twine said: “This season has been the most I’ve played, the most I’ve scored, and the best I’ve played, but it still counts for very little when you go down.

“It’s frustrating that we’ve gone down, and to go down with two or three games left was not good enough. We all know that, so we’ve got to take a look at ourselves over the summer, work hard, come back fitter and stronger than ever, and work our hardest next season.”
