Swindon Town defender Rob Hunt has signed a one-year contract extension keeping him at the club until 2022. 

The right-back was Town's top appearance holder for last season as the side won the League Two title on a points-per-game system. 

He had previously worked under current Town manager Richie Wellens at Oldham in 2017 and was brought to the County Ground at the start of the 2019/20 season.

During his first year at the club, Hunt made his 100th EFL appearance at the age of 25.

Despite being a natural right-back, Hunt swapped to left-back after fellow defender Paul Caddis joined the team in November.

He even managed to notch one goal and seven assists. 

Hunt said: “It was a really easy decision to extend for another year. The club’s been brilliant for me this season; not only the lads and all the staff members but the fans as well. They have been behind the team throughout the season which is unreal to see every week when you step foot onto the pitch.

“I’ve enjoyed this year so much on and off the field. The football we have played at times has been unbelievable but off the field, as well, the positivity and togetherness through the season, even when times got tough; that shows the real quality of this team.

"I’m looking forward to getting back to football after these crazy times and hoping the fans can come and enjoy the new season and a good year of football in League One.”
