Heaton and Heath leave United

Former Swindon loanee's Colin Heath and Tom Heaton have left Manchester United. One permanently and One temporary.

Heath and Heaton who were brought to Swindon under old manager Andy King, were meant to add depth to a thin Swindon squad. Heaton went on to become a firm fan favourite at the County Ground.

Had it not been for Heaton, Swindon may have been further back in the league. When Rhys Evans came back from a knee injury, Heaton's mere prescence brought the best out of Evans. Heaton will be best remmebered for his penalty save against Bristol City from a Scott Murray strike, which the referee eventually decided should be retaken.

Heath scored 2 goals while at Swindon and rarely failed to make an impact. He soon found himself relegated to the bench and then later sent back to Manchester United to train.

Tom Heaton has joined Belgium Side Royal Antwerp until the end of the season while Colin Heath, has been released from his contract at Manchester United and joins League One side Chesterfield on a permanent deal until the end of the season.
