BEN Gladwin has committed his future to Swindon Town.

The 29-year-old midfielder has put pen to paper on a new deal at the County Ground after becoming a mainstay in the side as Town push for an instant return to Sky Bet League One.

He has scored four goals, the most recent coming from the spot in Saturday's 3-1 win at Port Vale.

Gladwin, now in his third spell with the club, said: "I'm delighted. I'm really enjoying my time back here and I do feel that the club is on the way to building something quite special.

"The structure of the club from top to bottom now seems to be in a really good place, the recruitment is heading in the right path for sure and I'm just excited to be a part of it.

"Staying fit has been a massive part of it, so credit to the medical staff for helping with that and the manager for helping with my load throughout the week, and the way we play is obviously a massive bonus.

"It is what I enjoy doing and what I enjoy being a part of, and I think there is a lot more to come if I'm being honest. We've shown glimpses of how good we can be, but we're still at the start of a process of becoming a really good footballing side with the ability to dominate a lot of football matches and play in an entertaining way.

"It is good to be part of a system and I think my role has probably changed slightly as I've got a little bit older, you have to help the younger lads and fit into the system more and I've accepted that I'm just part of that system and I'm probably not going to always be the one scoring or assisting, but helping to try and coach the team slightly on the pitch and keep us sticking to what we try and do best.

"That's a role I've really enjoyed this season, so long may that continue."

Town director of football Ben Chorley said: "Glads has been instrumental on and off the pitch from the moment he signed.

"He brings a lot to the group.

"He sets an example the way he trains and looks after himself. We've been very happy with his data, his games and goals count is testament to his work.

"The environment and the togetherness is paramount to what we're building and Glads plays a big part in this."
