London-born forward who joined the Town last 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.

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.
