Former Bristol City striker Louis Britton is on the move again, joining his fifth club in just over a year.

Britton’s contract with the Robins was not renewed last summer and he has played for various teams since leaving Ashton Gate. In January, the 21-year-old joined Chorley, and just over a month later he has registered with a new club once more.

He has signed on a dual registration with Northern Premier League outfit Marine, who enjoyed a strong FA Cup run in 2021. Britton joined Marine in mid-February and opened his account with a goal against Morpeth Town. Britton also netted against Everton’s Under-18s in a local cup competition on Tuesday night.

Britton had loan spells at Woking and second-tier Irish side Waterford last season, before signing for Waterford’s league rivals Cork City, after a solid scoring spell of 10 goals in 17 matches, which drew criticism from his former supporters after making the move.

Britton last summer claimed to BristolLive that he was ‘thrown under the bus’ and was not given a fair chance to succeed at t the club. Bristol City were his boyhood team, but he was limited to just one senior appearance for the club, scoring against Brentford in May 2021.

A year later he would be released and following a short stint at Cork City, he joined struggling National League outfit Yeovil Town. He left on a free transfer in January 2023 having played four times and scoring once, paving the way for a move to Chorley.

Britton played two games for Chorley, and then a month later made the move to Marine, where he netted on his debut. He featured in the same City youth teams as the likes of Portsmouth’s Ryley Towler and was supportive of him after his brace against Bolton Wanderers in midweek.
