Former Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake has signed for Halesowen Town.
The former Manchester United youngster, who hit 25 goals in his best scoring season as Wolves won the Championship title in 2008/09, joins the club ahead of the new Evo-Stik League South Premier Division Central campaign. Still only 32 years old, Ebanks-Blake returns to playing after a spell with AFC Telford United in the Vanarama National League North last season.
He had signed for the Bucks last November, linking up with his former Wolves teammate Rob Edwards, who was the club’s manager at the time. He left the club in early-February after scoring four goals in seven games, as Edwards looked to balance the books.
After playing three seasons in the Premier League for Wolves under Mick McCarthy, the ex-Plymouth Argyle man was top scorer for the club in 2012/13 as they suffered relegation to League One. He had later spells at Ipswich Town, Preston North End, Chesterfield and Shrewsbury Town.
Halesowen Town manager John Hill told the club’s website:
‘’To be able to attract a player with such quality and experience as Sylvan is a pure signal of intent for the Yeltz to the other teams in the league, especially when you look at the clubs he has turned down. When a coup like this comes along it really does make the hundreds of phone calls that Matt Clarke and myself make each week worthwhile.”
