That man is Gary O’Neil who is 36 years old and is set to play in yesterday’s Central League game against Peterborough United which ended in a 4-0 loss.

Paul Tisdale said: “Gary has been training with us while he searches for a new club. He can help us out in terms of numbers for games like this.”

He was most recently at Bolton Wanderers and played over thirty games for Bolton in the 2018/19 season, scoring in the games against Rotherham United, Millwall and Wigan Athletic however couldn’t prevent the club from being relegated to League One.

However, his efforts were recognised by the clubs supporters as he won the Player of the Year award.
