Three Players To Leave Swindon Town

Three Players To Leave Swindon Town

Swindon Town have announced that three players will depart the club at the end of the season.

Sofiene Zaaboub, Andy Nicholas and Kaid Mohamed will not be back at the club for the 2008/09 League One campaign.

Zaaboub arrived at the County Ground last season under former manager Paul Sturrock who gave the Frenchman a trial. Zaaboub instantly impressed and was given a one and a half year contract that see`s him through until the end of this season. Last season Zaaboub became an instant hit and with his skill impressed the County Ground faithful. This season Zaaboub has seen his playing time reduced after giving the ball away constantly and due to his attitude on the pitch. Zaaboub has lost his temper on more than one occasion this season and clashed with the management team at the County Ground.

Nicholas is currently the clubs longest serving player having been at the club since 2003 after leaving Liverpool. Nicholas was a highly rated player at Liverpool and was snapped up by Andy King after realising he would never make the first team at Anfield consistently. It seemed like Nicholas was headed for the exit after King sent "Nicho" on loan to Chester City during the 2004/05 season however Nicholas came back and did well for Town. Nicholas was a key part to Town`s 2006/07 League 2 promotion and deserves a good sending off for Town although he will likely never wear the famous red shirt again.

Mohamed arrived prior to the current campaign after impressing then manager Paul Sturrock on trial. Sturrock said Mohamed was one for the future after arriving from Welsh Premier League outfit Carmarthen Town. Mohamed served mostly as a substitute for Town and recently went to Blue Square Premier side Torquay United. Mohamed returned and made a handful of appearances for Town but never really looked league standard. Mohamed could head to newly relegated Wrexham who were looking at Mohamed prior to signing for Town.

Defender Chris Blackburn who is currently on loan at Blue Square Premier outfit Weymouth is also expected to be told he is surplus to requirements at the County Ground and can leave the club.
