Ginnelly joins the Gas
Former Burnley player Josh Ginnelly became the first player to be involved in a transfer in last year’s January transfer window when he moved from Walsall to Preston North End and he’s on the move again having signed today for Bristol Rovers on loan until the end of the season.
Now 22, Ginnelly was at Burnley for three years as a teenager, during which time he went out on loan to Altrincham, Walsall, Lincoln and Tranmere, and when he was released in the summer of 2018 he returned to Walsall.
He was a first team regular for the first half of the 2018/19 season but then signed for Preston on New Year’s Day 2019. It’s not worked out as yet for him at Deepdale where his only start for the club was in this season’s League Cup game against Hull City.
That’s led to today’s move to Bristol Rovers. He’ll be there until the end of the season and could make a debut this weekend against current league leaders Rotherham. Rovers are currently in the hands of acting manager Kevin Maher who is standing in for Ben Garner and Ginnelly said of him: “When I met up with the gaffer and he told me his plans going forward I liked the sound of them, that’s why I’ve signed.”
Ginnelly becomes the second former Burnley player to move this window. Last weekend Sunderland completed the signing of Kyle Lafferty until the end of the season after he left Sarpsborg 08 where he’d been since leaving Rangers last summer.Share this page :
