Ormonde-Ottewill joined Arsenal’s academy at the age of eight and rose up through the youth ranks of the Gunners. He never made a senior appearance for the London club and was released in 2015.

He was subsequently snapped up by Swindon Town on a free transfer after impressing them on trial. He went on to play 56 games for the Robins over two seasons, chipping in with two goals from defence.
