Former Wanderers man Lloyd Isgrove has linked up with Hume City ahead of the upcoming Australian season.

It was announced in September that Isgrove had signed for the NPL Victoria outfit and he has now headed overseas to prepare for the new campaign.

The versatile wideman was released by the Whites over the summer following a three-year spell in the North West, departing alongside the likes of Kieran Lee and Elias Kachunga.

He was a key part of the side that won promotion from League Two during 2020/21, making 34 appearances in all competitions.

However, Isgrove played just six times last term after returning from a spell out of action with a hamstring issue.

The 30-year-old came through the ranks at Southampton and went on to have spells with the likes of Barnsley and Swindon before heading to Bolton. He has also represented Wales on the international stage.

After his Wanderers exit was confirmed over the summer, Isgrove wrote on social media: “After three seasons full of highs and lows I want to thank all the fans for their unbelievable support.

“It’s been a pleasure to play for you and I wish you and the club nothing but success in the future.

“Massive thanks to all the staff at the club who made me feel at home since the day I signed. All the best and I will always be a Wanderer.”

Isgrove will be keen to hit the ground running when Hume City begin their league campaign against Dandenong Thunder on February 10. The semi-professional side finished 10th in the table last term.

The Welshman becomes the latest ex-Bolton player to head down under, following in the footsteps of Adam Le Fondre and Craig Noone among others.
