We’re pleased to announce that we’ve completed the signings of two new players, with James Roberts and Tommy O’Sullivan joining The Bulls, both will be available for selection this weekend.
Roberts is a striker who spent two years in the Oxford United youth set up before signing his first pro-contract for the Us in May 2014. He made an impressive start to life in the Oxford first team set-up, grabbing a brace on his first full debut in an FA Cup tie against Grimsby, and then following it up with a goal in his first league start a week later.
His winning strike vs Plymouth in December 2014 was voted as the Oxford United Goal of the Season.
Roberts has also spent time on loan with Chester, Oxford City, Barnet, Stalybridge and Guiseley. The 22-year-old has featured in the Football League, National League, National League North and National League South.
Most recently the front-man has featured for Halesowen Town in the Evo-Stik League South Premier Division Central, and has scored eight times for the Yeltz so far this season so far.
Also arriving at Edgar Street is midfielder Tommy O’Sullivan. The 23-year-old attacking midfielder has featured for Championship side Cardiff City where he played in the FA Cup and Capital One Cup. He has also featured for Newport County and Port Vale in the English Football League.
Last season O’Sullivan played a handful of games for League 2 Colchester United, before spending four months on loan at Torquay in the National League.
O’Sullivan has been training with The Bulls for the last couple of weeks and featured as a trialist during the recent training game vs Cinderford Town.
The Bulls expect to make another one or two signings before the end of the week.
