Cherno Samba and Scott Spencer will not be offered County Ground contracts after failing to impress while on trial at Swindon Town.

Spencer was released by Everton in the summer, while former England youth frontman Samba has been without a club since March after leaving Finnish outfit FC Haka.

The striking duo have been training at Town and were both involved in recent friendlies, with Samba even going on the club’s pre-season tour of Austria, but Wilson admitted the pair didn’t add enough to the quality of his squad.

“They won’t be kept on,” the boss revealed.

“We don’t think they’ve particularly done anything wrong, but I think we’re just looking for a little bit of extra quality if we can.

“We want something different, something extra, and unfortunately from their point of view it may be good for someone else, but it’s no better than what we have at the club at the moment.

“We have to look at something better than that to take us forward. It’s nothing detrimental to them but that’s just the way we have set ourselves up with the squad.”

Former Toffees midfielder Stephen Morrison, however, will get another chance to prove himself following his goalscoring performance in the 3-0 win against Hungerford on Monday night.

That opportunity was due to come in Swindon’s friendly at Chippenham last night, and he was set to be joined for another shot at a deal by fellow triallist Anton Ademol.

“Morrison will play another game yet, but two out of the four – Cherno and Scott Spencer – will not be kept.

“We will look at the other two in another game and see how they are in that one.

“There’s nothing else to talk about at the moment. We are still definitely still looking for new players, but there’s no news right now.”

Meanwhile, Wilson was full of praise for Jonathan Douglas’ moment of magic as Town beat Luton 1-0 in their pre-season friendly on Tuesday night.

The midfielder grabbed the only goal of the game at Kenilworth Road midway through the second half as he rounded off a fine move involving Jon-Paul McGovern and Lloyd Macklin with a clinical finish.

And the boss believes it is a glimpse of what his Swindon side will be capable of this season in League One.

“It was excellent, wasn’t it?” said Wilson.

“The build-up play was terrific and that little bit of interchange between Dougie and Lloyd on the edge of the box completely flummoxed them.

“It left him with a go on goal and it was a very sweet finish.

“If we can do that and play that way then we will cause teams problems.”
