Hill signs ex-Card Goddard

Garry Hill has added his second midfielder this week with the capture of his former Woking player of the year John Goddard.

The 26-year-old is another with EFL experience having played for two seasons in Leagues One and Two with Swindon Town.

Goddard played in midfield for the Fleet last Saturday as a trialist against Tottenham Hotspur and he becomes the seventh new signing of the summer for his former Woking boss Hill.

The wide man joined Hayes & Yeading United in 2012 from Reading’s academy, where he played alongside Gozie Ugwu.

His next port of call in 2013 was Woking where he was a key part of Garry Hill’s side that came close to play-off qualification the following season. Goddard’s third and final campaign with the Cards saw him named player of the year as he became top scorer from midfield.

Swindon Town pounced to sign him for an undisclosed fee on a three-year contract in the summer of 2015 and he made 42 appearances in League One in his first season.

A brief spell at Stevenage was followed by six months with Bromley last season and the back half of the campaign was spent at Aldershot Town.

Goddard also has two caps for the England C national side.
