City pin hopes on defender as they welcome back former player

Bristol City are pinning their Championship hopes on a defender who began his career at the club a decade ago.

Scott Golbourne joins the club from Wolverhampton Wanderers, as they seek to add to their squad ahead of Monday's transfer deadline.

They've secured the signing of the Wolves left back for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old first joined City as a schoolboy, and was a product of the academy before he made his debut at the age of 17.

After a brief spell in the first team, left to join Reading ten years ago and has since had a host of stints at Exeter City, Barnsley and Wolves.

But now the Bristolian is now back at Ashton Gate.

A cousin of another former defender, Matthew Hill, Golbourne has penned a two-and-a-half-year contract after undergoing a medical at Failand.

Scott is a Bristol lad and that’s important to us.

He’s a left-back. At the moment we’ve either got Joe Bryan, who’s more of an attacking force, or Derrick Williams, who is more of a defensive type. It’s about getting that balance in between.

Scott has been here before, he’s athletic and someone we need for this football club.

– John Pemberton, City interim boss

Chris Gayle will be returning to Somerset Cricket this summer for the Natwest T20 Blast season.

The West Indian superstar, who played for the club last year, has signed a new six match contract, taking to the ground once more on June 1.

During his 2015 County season the left hander made a huge impression, scoring an amazing 328 runs in his three appearances.

This included 22 fours and an incredible 29 sixes.

328
runs scored by Chris Gayle for Somerset

I really enjoyed my time at Somerset last year. It's a great Club and the supporters were absolutely incredible. I'm looking forward to seeing the fans again and to scoring some more runs.

Hopefully I can help the Club make it through to the later stages of the NatWest T20 Blast.

In 2015 he scored:

Fours
29
Sixes

The matches he will play are:

  • Wednesday June 1 - Sussex v Somerset
  • Friday June 10 - Somerset v Surrey
  • Wednesday June 15 - Somerset v Glamorgan
  • Friday June 17 - Gloucestershire v Somerset
  • Sunday June 19 - Somerset v Hampshire

We are absolutely delighted to have secured the services of Chris Gayle once again. He is a genuinely world class player and was absolutely phenomenal for us last year.

He is probably the biggest name in the sport at the moment and his performances in the Big Bash recently have only underlined his status as one of the most explosive players that cricket has ever seen.

Taunton was absolutely rocking when he was out in the middle last year and Somerset fans can look forward to more of the same in 2016.
