Harry Aims To Rule Devs Frontline

Shrivenham Development are thrilled to announce that Harry Rule has joined the side from uhlsport Hellenic League 1 West side, Cirencester Town Development.

Prior to joining Shriv, the 18-year-old striker – who can also play as a winger when needed, had made 7 appearances for the Centurions this season, scoring 1 goal – which follows a hugely successful 2019-20 campaign where he made 21 appearances and scored 9 goals – his first coming during his debut appearance at Lydney Town.

“I’ve come to Shrivenham to hopefully impress and work towards breaking in to the First Team,” he told shrivenhamfc.co.uk after signing for the club.

“I’m aiming to gain regular playing time and improve my game and when I was contacted by the gaffer [Glenn Horsell], his plans seemed a perfect fit for me as well as the club so I was keen to make the move.”

Described by his former club as having an eye for an assist as well as scoring goals, he was also praised for his hard work and technical qualities alongside being a consistent performer and speaking about his new signing, joint Development Manager Glenn Horsell said:  “Harry is a great addition to our group – he has a lot of quality on the ball and a good eye for goal, which is something we are missing.

“He’ll improve our side and certainly has the potential to step up to the First Team in the future.  He’s still young and has plenty of time on his hands to be a top player and I know a lot of other clubs were after him so I’m really happy he decided to join us.”

Speaking about his decision to drop down a level and play at Shrivenham, the player concluded:  “Glenn knows me from when his previous teams played against Ciren, so he knows my ability and thinks I can fit in to his plans.

“I’m really looking forwards to getting on the pitch and teaming up with the other players, they seem a good bunch of lads.” 

Everybody at Barrington Park welcomes Harry to the club and we look forwards to seeing him running out for the Development side as soon as the lockdown is lifted and fingers crossed, he achieves his aim of breaking in to the First XI and can become another important part of our group.
