New College Swindon have been hit with a goalkeeping Crisis with Luke Merchant being offered the chance to move to Hellenic Premier Division side Longlevens and with Dan Lawrence still playing for the Swindon Town Youth team this has left a void in both the Hellenic team and also both U18 sides.
Academy manager Ian Howell assistant head coach Matt Cosnett have been deep in conversation and a Howell has been contacting some of his contacts from the professional ranks and non league contacts from his playing and coaching days to try and find a couple of suitable replacements in the coming weeks
Howell said. “We obviously never stand in the way of players development which is paramount to our programme and both Dan (Swindon Town), Luke (Longlevens), have the opportunity to play at higher level so we will never stop that. Hopefully we will be able to speak to a few people in the coming weeks.”
