Another great addition to the ranks for 21/22 season is gifted attacking midfield player Brad Maslen-Jones. A young professional with Peterborough United before being snapped up by Premier League Hull City, Brad has a great deal of experience for his years having also played in non league with Rushall Olympic, Stratford Town, Coalville Town and Evesham United - where he was previously under contract with Rovers boss Carl Abbott. The management are really excited to link up with Brad once again and this is a real coup for the club.
