"I'm amazed and delighted that we've managed to get Simon here," manager Guy Whittingham told the
"He's spent four years at Swindon and won promotion once and got to the play-offs twice. He is a player that will work his socks off so he should prove popular with the fans here."
Ferry signed professional forms at Parkhead in 2006, but never made a first-team appearances for Celtic.
He joined Swindon, initially on loan, in August 2009 before
agreeing a permanent switch the following summer.
In his four seasons with the Robins he played 174 matches, scoring eight goals.
