SWINDON Town’s longest-serving player Ellis Iandolo says he feels more at home now than he possibly ever has.

Iandolo joined Swindon from Maidstone United back in 2015 when the recently-returned Scott Lindsey was previously at the County Ground under Mark Cooper.

Now working under his 12th different head coach, caretaker, or permanent manager, Iandolo has seen plenty of change during his time.

But with relative stability now in place under owner Clem Morfuni and head coach Ben Garner, Iandolo has begun the season with a fair shot and has often produced some high-quality displays.

Asked if the current environment has enabled Iandolo to showcase the best side of himself, he said: “I definitely feel more at home now.

“One thing we’ve definitely got this year compared to other years is the staff – they want to develop players, they want to make you better every day in training.

“It’s not just about results, they want good performances, they want you to improve. Every day in training, I’m learning new things.

“Scott [Lindsey] has come in again, he was here when I first came in and was massive for me in my development as a player. I definitely feel a lot more at home with the club at the minute.”

The versatile 24-year-old recently made his 100th appearance for the club against Stevenage, with the previous 99 outings coming across seven seasons at Swindon, playing at left-back and – more recently – in central midfield.

As opposed to feeling like a Jack of all trades but master of none, with his versatility counting against him, Iandolo says he feels extremely comfortable in either position.

When asked which position he really prefers to play in, Iandolo laughed before confirming he doesn’t mind which, as long as he plays.

Iandolo said: “I really don’t have a preference, I enjoy both of them.

“I was a centre midfielder growing up, so that was where I played most of my junior football. But then I got moved to left-back a few years back and have played the majority of my time there.

“I feel very, very comfortable in either position, it’s just about doing whatever the team needs me to do.

“The gaffer sets us up for games, so it’s about listening to how he wants us press and trying to take everything he says on board, and trying to put that into practice during games.

“I thought that worked quite well against Stevenage to be honest, so hopefully that continues.”
