Swindon Town have completed the signing of Blair Sturrock.
The striker has put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal after previously agreeing a contract to stay at the club to the end of last season.
Sturrock joined Town on a short-term basis in October 2006 but he will now be playing under his father Paul, who is the Swindon boss, on a permanent basis.
"Blair showed signs of what he can do last season and he is now back to full fitness and raring to go," said manager Sturrock.
"He should compliment the mix of strikers we are aiming to bring to the club."
Meanwhile, Swindon have announced Rufus Brevett is to join the club as sporting director.
Brevett, a former West Ham, Fulham and QPR defender, hung up his boots in May and is currently completing his coaching badges and it is hoped the appointment will soon be made.
The Robins are in the middle of a consortium takeover and it is expected Brevett's new role will involve acting as a link between the club and the new owners, while also assisting with scouting duties.
"Rufus seems a nice lad and has had a decent career in the game and I am sure he will have some useful contacts which can hopefully benefit the club," Town boss Sturrock told the club's official website.
"He is keen to learn and is taking his coaching badges.
"His primary role is to provide the contact between myself and the new owners.
"If I need a quick decision to be made then I can get in touch with him and he can facilitate that."
