Joel Rollinson Player Profile
Debut: Bradford City (H, 0-1), 20/08/2019
The start of the 2019-20 season didn’t stop boss Dino Maamria adding to his squad; Joel Rollinson coming in two days after our opening match. Not that it was much of a shock to be fair, as the young wide man had featured for us during the 2019 pre-season. With pace to burn, you can understand why Maamria turned to Rollinson. After all, our options in that sense hadn’t been too broad.
Rollinson was available to us on a freebie after Reading let him go that summer. While he hadn’t made a first-team appearance for the Royals, there were two games in the Football League Trophy to speak of – including a goal in a ridonculous 7-5 defeat to Gillingham. In addition to that, there was also a taste of first team football in a loan spell with Eastbourne Borough during the 2018-9 season. Were we the springboard to a fruitful career in League Two and above? You can come back to us on that later.
