Timlin Seals Shrimpers Switch

Michael Timlin has departed the County Ground after a near 5 year stay at the club.

Timlin joined Swindon during the 2006-07 League 2 season under former boss Paul Sturrock and was a key part to Swindon returning to League 1 at the first chance.

After the season Timlin returned to Fulham where he featured regularly in the reserves.

Fulham Manager Roy Hodgson told Timlin he was surplus to requirements and Timlin accepted a loan offer to return to Swindon for the end part of the 2007/08 League 1 season.

At the end of the 2007/08 campaign, Town boss Maurice Malpas offered Timlin a permanent 2 year contract.

Timlin told the press he wanted to stay and signed the deal on the 3rd May 2008.

Timlin would feature regularly for Town until the 2009/10 season where Jonathan Douglas and Simon Ferry formed a fantastic midfield pair which helped lead the club to the League One playoff final.

Timlin once again found himself on the bench during the 2010/11 season after the arrival of David Prutton and the permanent signing of Simon Ferry although Ferry didn't feature as much as he had hoped.

Due to lack of games Timlin was sent out on loan to Southend United where he linked up once again with Paul Sturrock after an injury to Shrimpers captain Craig Easton left a hole in midfield.

Timlin was a free agent at the end of the 2010/11 season and surprisingly was offered a new contract at Swindon Town.

It as widely expected that Timlin would reject the deal at Swindon to re-join Sturrock at Southend however he signed a new 2 year contract to remain at Swindon.

After falling out of favour with Di Canio Timlin was once again sent out on loan to Southend United where Timlin was a key part of a side that went unbeaten in 17 games.

Timlin today officially signed a permanent 18 month contract much to the delight of Shrimpers fans who have been impressed with his play at Roots Hall.
