TRANSFER - Brakes sign Yeovil striker Hulbert on loan

LEAMINGTON have signed striker Oliver Hulbert on loan from National League side Yeovil Town until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old joined Yeovil in the summer and spent time on loan at Gloucester City and Plymouth Parkway earlier this season.

Hulbert turned professional at hometown club Bristol Rovers in 2020 and was loaned out to Cardiff Met University, Hereford and Gloucester during his time with the Gas.

Leamington boss Paul Holleran said: “I’m delighted to get Oliver over the line, he’s a player that was very impressive in this division last year.

“It’s an area we have been looking to improve. We’ve been looking for another option for a number of months, but trying to find the right number nine at the moment is something that has proved to be very difficult.

“Oliver is a player that we know has the potential to add a different dimension to our attack, and throughout his young career he has always scored goals. We are really looking forward to working with him.”

Hulbert scored 11 goals in 34 appearances last season including nine in the National League North for Gloucester.
