FORMER Swindon Supermarine defender Jon Steedman has signed for Wantage Town.

The versatile left-sided defender has spent the last two seasons with Dave Webb’s side, but has now opted to move to the side who won promotion to Southern League Division One South & West last season.

Wantage assistant manager Andy Lyne said: “Me and Jon go back a long way, he was an integral part of my successful Witney sides and was a member of the team at Oxford City when we did the Spartan and South Midland League double.

“He has gained considerable experience at a higher level since those days and it goes without saying we are delighted to get a player with his Southern League experience to come to Wantage.”
