Former player finds new club

Former Robins player Lee Tomlin has landed himself a new move in the Football League.

The 33-year-old, who played at Ashton Gate during the 2016/17 season, was released by Walsall at the end of June.

He has now been snapped up by fellow League Two club Doncaster Rovers after doing enough on trial with the Yorkshire outfit to earn a deal.

Surprise position change for loanee

Shrewsbury Town boss Steve Cotterill has said that he has signed Bristol City’s Taylor Moore as a midfielder.

He usually operates as a defender but will be playing a bit further up the pitch for his new loan club.

Cotterill has said, as per a report by the Shropshire Star:

“Taylor has come here as a central midfield player. Taylor can do two positions for us, that’s vital with our budget, I think Taylor hasn’t quite fulfilled his potential in the Championship at centre-back.

He added:

“He started as a central midfield player. It’s not foreign to him that we stuck a centre-back in midfield. I signed him as a central midfield player.

“You need somebody that can look after the space in front of that back three.”
