BRIDGWATER Town have signed British Virgin Islands international Jamie Wilson.
The 24-year-old made his debut for the British overseas territory – situated in the Caribbean near Puerto Rico – in October 2018.
He has since gained three further international caps and has one international goal to his name.
His previous clubs include Bournemouth, New Milton Town, and South Tampa FC of the Suncoast Soccer League in Florida.
The Robins co-manager Dave Pearse said: “Jamie is a technically gifted footballer, fit, and a very strong runner with the ball. He will create lots of goal scoring opportunities for us that’s for sure.
“He has a fantastic mentality which is exactly what we are looking for. He has good experience for a young player having played for the British Virgin Islands national team and we are all excited to see him at Fairfax Park.”
Jamie said: “I’m really looking forward to getting started with the club. I have been very impressed with the professionalism of Bridgwater and their management.
“I have been fortunate enough to watch their recent performance in the FA Vase and knew I wanted to be a part of it.
“I’m hoping to make a positive impact at the club and bounce off such a great set of players and supporters Bridgwater currently has.”
Former AFC Bournemouth Chairman Adam Murry, whose involvement with the Robins was announced recently, said: “We are really delighted to secure the signing of Jamie Wilson as another quality addition to our team.
“Jamie has a wealth of experience across national and international football which will bring further quality to the squad. I’m excited to see the link-up between Jamie and Tom Fry in midfield.”
With matches currently postponed because of the lockdown, Bridgwater have to wait until December 5 their next match when they visit Odd Down AFC in the Toolstation league (3pm).
