Swin­don set to lose Doyle

Western Daily Press - - Rugby, Football -

LEAGUE Two top-scorer Eoin Doyle is set to stay in the fourth tier next sea­son by leav­ing Swin­don Town in or­der to sign for Bolton Wan­der­ers.

Doyle, whose 25 goals helped Swin­don be­come cham­pi­ons, had been of­fered a new con­tract by the Wilt­shire Robins, but boss Richie Wel­lens says the 32-yearold will in­stead join Bolton.

“The money that Bolton are throw­ing around for a player of his age, and a three-year deal, we couldn’t get to that,” Wel­lens told BBC Ra­dio Wilt­shire.

“I be­lieve he’s had a med­i­cal at Bolton, In fact, I’m sur­prised they’ve not re­leased it yet. When you get to Eoin’s age and a three­year deal is put in your lap, it’s very hard to turn down.”

Mean­while, Swin­don’s French de­fender Math­ieu Baudry has signed a two-year ex­ten­sion to his deal with the club.

The 32-year-old said: “I feel like I’ve got a lot more to show than last sea­son.”
