WANTAGE Town have signed versatile left-sided defender Jon Steedman from Calor League Division 1 South & West club Swindon Supermarine.

Steedman made 73 appearances in two years at Supermarine.

His previous clubs include Witney United, Oxford City, Thame United and Highworth Town.

This is a boost for Wantage, who will play in Calor League Division 1 South & West for the first time next season.

Assistant manager Andy Lyne said: “Jon and I go back a long way.

“He was an integral part of my successful Witney sides and played at Oxford City when we did the Spartan South Midlands League double.

“He has gained considerable experience at a higher level since those days and we are delighted to get him.”
