Former Bristol Rovers striker Ryan Brunt is hoping to find a new lease of life in part-time football with Bath City.

The 25-year-old, who made 35 appearances in a two-year spell at the Gas , has endured a troublesome couple of years with injuries, playing just 20 minutes of competitive senior football since a long-term knee injury sustained when playing for Plymouth Argyle in March 2016.

He spent last year at Exeter City before being released, and has now signed for the Romans, where he hopes part-time football will get the best out of him.

“I’m happy to be here,” Brunt said to Somerset Live . “I’ve had a troublesome two/two-and-a-half years where I haven’t played much competitive football.

“I think that’s the major reason for me signing here – to come and enjoy football again. Play as many games as I possibly can and develop again.

“I’ve had to manage a load on my knee in the last six or seven months.

“It [part-time] just suits me. I’ve got a business that’s developing, and I enjoy that. If I can do both things, it’s great.”
