AS the countdown to the new League Two season continues, Adver Sport casts an eye over four of Swindon Town’s new signings to see which of those players could be key to a successful season for Scott Lindsey’s men.


After a solid pre-season, it appears as though the young Middlesbrough goalkeeper will nab the number one jersey ahead of Lewis Ward for Swindon’s first game against Harrogate Town.

Brynn only has one half-season of experience behind him and is coming into a relatively high-pressured situation at Swindon, given the number of times the word ‘promotion’ has been mentioned by players and staff so far.

If he can follow in the footsteps of former loanee Steven Benda, and to an extent copy Jojo Wollacott’s early form, Town can build on a solid defence and chain together some early wins.


Town’s newly-appointed captain has been brought to the club as a “marquee signing” and is expected to lead the defence in the majority of league and cup matches.

His consistency, power, and smart decision-making were three key reasons why MacDonald was acquired by Town, and those attributes will have to be regularly on show if the leaky defence of last season is to be a thing of the past.


The Gambian came to the club with a beaming smile on his face, and that passion for playing has already won him several fans among the Town faithful.

A powerful run against Cardiff City showed supporters a glimpse of what he’s capable of, and head coach Scott Lindsey revealed the midfielder is “as strong as an ox” with a keen eye for goal as well.

I have a strong feeling Khan will be a firm fans’ favourite anyway, but if he is a star of Town’s midfield, he could well be lifting the Swindon Advertiser’s Swindon Town Player of the Season trophy next May.


Adeloye – by his own admissions – is at a make-or-break point in his career and has a point to prove to himself as the striker begins his time in Wiltshire.

In his first run-out against Cardiff, the 26-year-old provided flashes of the attributes he possesses while the green shoots of a potentially fruitful partnership with Harry McKirdy started to appear.

The 6’1 striker is more than just a target man though, and he will be required to prove that in order to take the strain of goal-scoring away from his partner.
