SWINDON TOWN: Ritchie extension confirmed
9:53am Saturday 8th September 2012 in Sport
MATT Ritchie has penned a new deal with Swindon Town, keeping him at the County Ground until the summer of 2014 - the club has confirmed.
Ritchie, who arrived in Wiltshire on an initial loan deal in February 2010, signed permanently with Town 11 months later and has since become one of the Swindon squad's most integral players.
He was voted the best player in League Two last season as the Robins stormed to promotion, and the club have had to fend off persistent interest for his signature from Bournemouth over the past year.
