Holleran boosts attacking options by signing ex Notts County striker

FOOTBALL: PAUL Holleran has utilised the ‘Twelfth Man fund’ to bolster his attacking options for next season by signing former Notts County striker Colby Bishop.

The 20-year-old ended last season with Boston United having cancelled his contract at Worcester City, who he signed for last summer.

He started his playing career at Notts County, coming through the youth system before being handed a contract by then manager Shaun Derry in November 2014.

He made his first team debut on Boxing Day the following month at Milton Keynes.




Colby also spent a spell on loan at Gloucester City towards the end of his time at Meadow Lane.

Holleran was pleased to have fought off the attentions of other clubs.


He said: “I have kept an eye on Colby for a while, we have tried to bring him to the club once before but we’re delighted that he has agreed to come to us.

“He’s a good size and a great target man and I think he’s got a big future in the game.

“He feels Leamington is the right club for him at the moment, I’m delighted with that and I am looking forward to working with him.”
