BRETT Pitman has signed for Swindon Town's League 2 rivals Bristol Rovers.

The experienced forward left the County Ground by mutual consent, having not trained with Town during a turbulent pre-season.

He signed from Portsmouth in 2020 and scored 12 goals in 42 league matches as Town were relegated from League One last term.

A statement on the Town website read: "After speaking with his representatives, Brett has decided to join Bristol Rovers.

"Swindon Town Football Club would like to thank Brett for his efforts last season and wish him the very best for the remainder of his career."
