John Goddard has signed a three-year deal at League One side Swindon Town for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old left midfielder has been Woking’s stand out player this season, scoring 17 league goals and picking up Player’s Player, Manager’s Player and Cards Trust Player of the Season awards.

A move into the Football League for Goddard comes as no surprise following Garry Hill’s comments towards the end of the season saying that he was sure he’d make the step up in the summer. The Non-League Paper also ran a story in April confirming Swindon were keen to sign the midfielder.

Goddard went on trial at Woking in the pre-season of 2013. He showed some promising signs but suffered an injury that dented his hopes of signing. However, Hill and Steve Thompson kept him in the fold and he eventually made his debut in a 2-0 win over Hyde.

Gradually Goddard worked his way into the side on a regular basis before becoming a key player this season.
