Swindon Town have confirmed that goalkeeper Conor Brann has been recalled from his loan spell at Swindon Supermarine.

Brann returns to the County Ground to act as cover for first-choice goalkeeper Jack Bycroft following the departure of Lewis Ward in January.

Ward had deputised for Murphy Mahoney for the first part of the season and then started the games following his injury, but was returned to the bench following the acquisition of Bycroft from Southampton.

The 26-year-old left the County Ground to join Charlton Athletic in January, leaving under-18s goalkeeper Redman Evans as the nominal backup.

Brann will return from a successful loan spell at the Webbswood Stadium to help fill the void left by the departed Ward.

The 20-year-old had a strong spell in the Southern League Premier South as under new head coach Stuart Fleetwood, Supermarine have propelled themselves away from the threat of relegation.

In his first taste of senior football, Brann won five out of the first six man-of-the-match awards with Supermarine and impressed Fleetwood with both his calmness and ability to bounce back from errors.

Following this recall, Town now have a squad of 27 players for the remainder of the season.
