Read: Kesler-Hayden's emotional goodbye to Swindon fans on social media

Kesler-Hayden initially posted a brief goodbye to them and the club on his social media pages, but has since gone into more detail in a post on Swindon's official website. 

"I just want to say a massive thank you to all the fans who turned up at every single game and have supported me throughout my time," Kesler-Hayden said.

"I've really developed since I've been here and credit goes to the Gaffer, Chores and all the other staff and the players for making me feel welcome.

"All the credit to them and to the fans.

"I couldn't have gotten this far in my development without the help of others and without the support of others.

"Like I said before, big credit to the fans, the Gaffer, Scott Lindsey, Scott Marshall, all the staff behind the scenes, the Physios, the Sports Science team and just a massive thank you to everyone. 

"This club will always have a massive place in my heart."

After scoring the goal that got Swindon through to the third round of the FA Cup for the first time in many years, it is perhaps only fitting that his last match was his great display against one of the best teams in the world. 

"The game was amazing and it was the best crowd I've played in-front of. The noise was amazing and the fans deserved it," he said. 

"From where we came from in the summer to doing well in the league and having nights like that in the FA Cup against Manchester City, one of the best clubs in the world, and the fans fully deserved that.

"I wish the club all the best for the future."
