Released Bower in switch to join Bath
DEFENDER Matt Bower has signed for Bath City following his release by Cheltenham Town.
The 20-year-old was wanted by former loan club Weston-super-mare, who have dropped to the Southern League Premier Division South.
But he will link up with ex-robins full-back Jerry Gill at Twerton Park.
Gill said: “As we continue to build a competitive squad for the new season, Matt comes with Football League experience and the potential to develop further.
“Matt has ambitions to be successful with a long term goal of returning to the professional game.
“I am looking forward to working with and developing Matt.”
Bower, 6ft 7in, made one Football League start for hometown club Cheltenham after progressing through the academy.
He also spent time on loan at Cirencester Town.
