CONNECTIONS: Coventry City vs Swindon Town - We take a look back at three players who have been at both clubs

18 March 2016

We reflect on three players who have represented both clubs during their careers

Coventry City play Swindon Town on Saturday in the Sky Bet League One game, looking to get their second victory in as many games. Ahead of the fixture, we detail three players who have been on both sides.


Frank Rouble

Nouble joined Swindon on a one-month emergency loan deal in March 2010 to boost the Robins’ striking options, after injuries to Billy Paynter and Vincent Pericard. In April 2010, his loan was extended until the end of the 2009/10 season. During his time at the County Ground he made eight appearances, scoring no goals.


Nouble arrived at the Sky Blues in September 2014, signing a short-term loan until January 2015. The striker went onto sign a six-month permanent deal in January 2015. The club would then release him at the end of the 2014/15 season, having made 31 appearances, scoring six goals.


In June of last year, Nouble signed for Chinese League One side Tianjin Quanjian on a two-year contract later joining fellow Chinese side Nei Mongol Zhongyou on loan, in December.


Johnnie Jackson

Jackson began his career at Tottenham Hotspur going out loan on multiple times during his spell at White Hart Lane. He joined Swindon in August 2002 where he made 14 appearances and scored two goals.


He joined City in November 2003, where he was only limited to five appearances but still managed to amass two goals. One of which eaned him much admiration as it was a last minute-winner against local rivals West Brom.


Roy Wegerle

The former USA international striker joined the Robins in March 1988 on loan from Chelsea for the last seven games of that season. He scored one goal in that time for Swindon.


Wegerle moved to the Sky Blues in March 1993 for £1 million from Blackburn Rovers. Despite multiple injury problems, Wegerle made 53 appearances for City and scored nine goals, until his contract expired at the enod of the 1994/95 season.
