Oliver Norburn signs

The club are delighted to confirm the signing of midfielder Oliver Norburn ahead of Saturday’s Vanarama National League clash with Eastleigh.

Norburn, 23, lists Leicester City, Bristol Rovers and Plymouth Argyle among his former clubs and has been training with the Lions in recent weeks.

With Mark Bower’s squad having been hit by a host of injuries in recent weeks, Norburn’s paperwork has been completed and he will be available for selection this weekend.

Mark said: “We’ve been really impressed with Oli in training during the past few weeks and we feel he has proven quality to add to our squad.

“With the injuries and suspensions we’ve had, it’s even more pleasing to be able to get someone of Oli’s calibre in ahead of Eastleigh.”
