Play-off target for Wildcats’ returnee

Floyd Taylor has signed a new one-year deal with Swindon Wildcats.

The 21-year-old forward already has over 200 EPL games under his belt and has previously iced for Great Britain at U18 and U20 level.

“I’m very happy to have come back because I’ve been playing in Swindon since I was three-years-old having come through the junior ranks, and to play for your senior team is quite an achievement,” said Taylor.

“Swindon is going to be up there because Aaron (Nell) has signed a good team.

“Hopefully I can contribute with a few more goals and assists and I’m sure my physical side will be back.

“I scored a lot of points in my junior career, but I’m still quite young and I would like to start getting more points and helping the team out with more goals.

“Hopefully we can make it to Coventry this season and go all the way – there’s no reason why we can’t.”

Wildcats’ boss Nell admitted he was delighted to have Taylor back for another season.

“Floyd is Swindon through and through and he loves playing for his hometown club,” said Nell. “He’s a great player to have in the dressing room and around the club.

“I believe there’s a lot more to come from Floyd. He’s a physical player who, when he’s at his best, is intimidating to play against.

“When he plays like that he gives the team and the crowd an awful lot of energy and makes us very tough to play against.

“Floyd is in way better shape than this time last year and this will help the team and also his own personal performance.

“I know he can’t wait to get started again.”
