Ten confirmed for the Reds as Bobby Johnson joins

Tuesday Jun 5, 2018

The Club are pleased to announce the signing of midfielder Bobby Johnson from North Ferriby United.

Bobby joins us on a one year deal.

Johnson came through the ranks at Retford United, featuring for their Under 19s, a move to Frickley Atheltic soon followed before Bobby moved to Goole FC in 2015.

A fruitful spell saw him net eight times in the 2015/16 season and then 11 times in the 2016/17 campaign. These performances, especially in the 2016/17 season saw Bobby claim Goole’s top goal scorer alongside the Players and Supporters Player of the Year.

Bobby would then join North Ferriby at the start of the 2017/18 season and made 28 league appearances for the Villagers, scoring once last term.

Billy Heath spoke with Amar on bringing Bobby to the Reds:

“Bobby will bring lots of energy to the side; he is a clever player on the ball and is a tenacious individual.”

“Bobby is similar to Ross (Durrant) in the sense that he had a difficult season last season with Ferriby but again everytime I watched him, he was impressive.”

“His will to win is fantastic, he has a great attitude and desire and he wants to play. It’s a great signing for us again.”
