SWINDON Town goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux’s loan move to League of Ireland side Waterford was confirmed tonight.

Vigouroux, named Town’s player of the season for 2016-17, joins the Blues with the deal subject to international clearance.

The 24 year old has not featured for Town since being disciplined by manager David Flitcroft for an unsanctioned night out over the new year period.

The former Liverpool stopper subsequently revealed his desire to leave Wiltshire in an interview with a Chilean media outlet but no move away was completed in the January transfer window.

He has now joined the Irish club owned by Swindon Town chairman Lee Power.

Waterford boss Alan Reynolds said: “Lawrence is an experienced goalkeeper who who has played at a high level with both Spurs and Liverpool before moving to Swindon.

“He will be a big asset to the club and his experience will also bring on both Matthew Connor and Niall Corbet.

”He has trained with us for the past couple of weeks and has looked impressive so we’ll see how he gels into the squad over the coming weeks.“

Vigouroux told Waterford’s website: “There is a very good set-up here in Waterford and it what I am used to, coming from England; the professionalism, sessions and coaching is all very good.

“I have come here to try and enjoy my football again, to get back to playing and hopefully help the club in any way that I can this season.

”Working with Dirk Heinen has been great. He is very professional and has already been one of the best goalkeeping coaches I have worked with.

”The club is lucky to have him – he is working hard to progress Matthew (Connor) and Niall (Corbet) to the next level and I feel that I am going to benefit greatly from his experience in the game that will hopefully bring all three of us to a higher standard.

‘Having watched the lads play, I reckon that I will fit well into the style of football and the playing philosophy at the club.

”I am a goalkeeper who likes to play out from the back, get the ball to the feet and set up attacks. Hopefully now I can hit the ground running and help the club succeed.”
