Hibs keeper Max Boruc on trial with Swindon Town

Last updated : 10 July 2024 By Steve Forbes

Today, it was announced that Hibs goalkeeper Max Boruc has started a trial with Swindon Town.

The 21-year-old was spotted on social media last night, participating in a pre-season friendly against Hungerford Town.

Subsequent press reports have verified that the 6ft 5in Polish goalkeeper is currently training with the English League Two team.

Whether this is for a potential permanent transfer or a loan deal has yet to be confirmed.

Last summer, Boruc signed a two-year deal with the Hibees, transferring from the Polish team Slask Wroclaw.

He was quickly put to the test when the Hibees faced Andorran team Inter D'Escaldes in the UEFA Conference League, stepping in after first-choice goalkeeper David Marshall was injured during the warm-up and substitute Jojo Wollacott suffered an injury in the first half.

Hibs secured a 6-1 victory in that match.

Afterward, Boruc made a few more appearances before being loaned to Scottish Championship team Arbroath, where he played 13 times.


We are surprised by this, young Max has shown to be a decent keeper when called upon.

A loan deal for a season would be good for him, but this looks like it could be pointing towards being permanent to us.

Hibs still have a bloated squad, despite numerous players leaving this summer, and new boss David Gray may see this as a chance to free up more space.
