Gloucester City Football Club are pleased to announce the signing of experienced striker Craig Reid.

\r\n

Reid, 30, started his career at Coventry City’s youth academy in 2000, spending two years at the club before opting to join Ipswich Town in 2002.

\r\n

He spent two years at Ipswich, and then returned to Coventry in 2004. During his time at Coventry, Reid spent a month on loan at Conference National side Tamworth.

\r\n

At the end of the 2005–06 season, Reid was released, having failed to make a first-team appearance for his hometown club.

\r\n

In January 2007, Reid signed for Cheltenham Town, making a handful of appearances during a one-and-a-half-year tenure, and was released by the club in May 2008.

\r\n

After signing for Newport County following a successful loan spell, Reid went on to score 58 goals in 96 appearances for The Exiles and was the club’s top goal scorer for three consecutive seasons.

\r\n

He helped Newport to promotion to the Conference National during the club’s successful 2009–10 campaign.

\r\n

In January 2011, Reid signed for Stevenage for £90,000, making him Stevenage’s record signing and once again helped them earn promotion to League One during the 2010–11 campaign.

\r\n

He has also played for Southend, Aldershot Town and Kidderminster Harriers and becomes Manager Tim Harris third new recruit of the summer.

\r\n

Speaking about his former Newport County striker, Tigers boss Tim Harris said: “Craig will add a lot to our young squad, he has gained considerable experience, people like Joe Parker, Ethan Moore and Luke Hopper can lean so much from him.

\r\n

“I am delighted to be reunited and working with him again after our time in South Wales, he will always be highly remembered by the County supporters in what was a hugely successful period for the club and himself.”
