Swindon Town have turned to the National League North for their latest recruit after tying up a deal for Banbury United winger Morgan Roberts.
The former Northampton Town apprentice had signed a professional deal at Sixfields back in May 2018, having made his senior debut in a Sky Bet League One draw with Oldham Athletic during the same month.
Having amassed 18 appearances in the first team, Roberts left his boyhood Club for Banbury in July 2021 after spending 12 years in the academy.
Last season, Roberts netted 10 times in 27 outings, attracting the attention of Swindon in the process.
“I’m really happy,” the 21-year-old told the club website. “It’s all been very quick on deadline day but it’s great to be here.
“I’ve come through the academy at Northampton Town and played a few games for them, but have lots of non-league experience and it’s taught me a lot. It’s given me the belief that I can come back to full-time football and it’s an exciting new chapter for me.
“I’m very energetic and creative. I love to get goals and assists and I want to win. I’ve come from a team that has just won the league, so I want to continue that form and show everyone what I can do here at The County Ground.”
Town Technical Director, Sandro Di Michele, said: “Morgan is a really interesting signing for us and is an extremely talented young player.
“He’s proved himself in the non-league environment and is definitely one for the future. He’s got an interesting profile and it’s one that fits the Swindon project, so it’s going to be fascinating to see him develop.”
