Former Bristol City striker Louis Britton has found a new club after his release from Yeovil Town. The former Robins forward was let go by the Glovers last week but has quickly been snapped up by his newest club.

After just four games for the National League outfit, and just one goal which came in the Somerset Cup, Britton was moved on by the man that signed him, Mark Cooper. Current City pair Ewan Clark and Sam Pearson had also left Huish Park with their loans cut short.

Britton has joined National League North outfit, Chorley, in what is his fourth club in less than a year. Chorley play in the sixth tier of English football and are chasing a playoff spot, which would get them into the National League. They had been chasing the signature of Britton for some time, and are now glad to secure one of their long-term transfer targets.

“Louis is a player we’ve been tracking for a while,” said Andy Preece to Chorley’s official club website. “He’s been prolific in u23 football, scored for Bristol City’s first team, and did very well in Ireland last year.

“He fits the profile of players we like to bring to the club – hungry lads who have a point to prove.”

Britton was on the books of City from 2019 to Bristol City after being signed first by Bath City. He had started out with AEK Boco but then turned to the senior game from a young age, playing for clubs like Cadbury Heath, Brislington, and later Mangotsfield United. He was prolific in the non-league and in 62 games scored 32 times.

He had one senior appearance for City, coming off the bench against Millwall in the 2020/21 season. Britton scored 16 goals in one season for the Under-21’s but was not considered for the first-team.

Britton joined Waterford on loan, and scored 10 goals in 18 games in the second tier of Ireland, before securing a move to Cork City, where he failed to find the back of the net in ten games. Britton only joined Yeovil in November, but after just 54 days was allowed to leave his contract early, and now he hopes to rebuild his career at Victory Park.
