Striker Omar Bogle is another of Town’s new faces this summer, and early signs are that he will bring pace, power and goals to the side.

Born in Birmingham, the 6 foot 2 hitman began his career in the youth team at Birmingham City, managing to play for their Reserve side at the age of 16 before leaving for Scotland to play for Celtic in December 2011.

After a spell in the under-19s at Celtic Park, Omar joined Hinckley United in March 2012, it was there that he began to make a name for himself on the non-league scene, only lasting three months before he was poached by Conference North side Solihull Moors.

He hit 29 goals last season for Solihull, finishing top goalscorer in the  Conference North and also winning the league’s Player of the Year award, which was what led to interest from Town boss Paul Hurst.

Omar officially signed for the club on 15th June 2015 for an undisclosed fee, with Town beating a number of other clubs to his signature and will be eager show he can seamlessly make the step up to National League level this season.
