Striker. London-born forward who joined the Town this summer alongside Oxford United team-mate Johnny Mullins, after the pair had helped the U’s to promotion to League One and the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final. Hylton started his career with Aldershot Town, where he made over 200 appearances in the Conference and League Two before joining Rotherham United in 2013. He played just one game for the then-League One club, however, and was loaned out to Bury and AFC Wimbledon prior to his move to Oxford two years ago. While at the Kassam Stadium Hylton hit 30 goals in 84 starts, but turned down the offer of a new contract in order to pen a two-year deal at Kenilworth Road. Currently the club’s top scorer this season, the striker is well on his way to beating his best-ever tally of 16. The forward signed a new contract with the Town in January 2017, keeping him at the club until 2019, with the potential to extend it until 2020.
