May 31, 2017 | News, Team News

Everyone at Bristol Rovers Supporters Club is delighted to welcome Liam Sercombe to the club.

Oxford United Midfielder Sercombe,27, becomes the first signing of the summer and joins Rovers for an undisclosed fee. He started his career at Exeter City before moving to Oxford and has notched up 292 league appearances, scoring 37 times including a best haul of 14 goals in Oxford’s promotion season in 2015-16.

Speaking to the Club web-site manager Darrell Clarke said, “Liam was one of my top summer targets. I was interested in signing him a couple of years ago as he is a quality attacking midfielder and I am delighted that he has agreed to join us.

“I’m sure that our supporters will remember him from his time at both Exeter and Oxford and will welcome and appreciate the way he plays the game and I am grateful to the club’s owner and directors for their backing as we prepare for next season.”

Sercombe added, ““I wanted the transfer to take place before I took my holiday so that I can relax before coming back to a lot of hard work in pre-season.  As soon as I knew of Rovers’ interest, there was only one place I wanted to go. People who know me will also know how much I wanted to come here. I’m very happy and can’t wait to get started. I want to help this club go forward because in my eyes it’s a big club and one that can definitely go places and I want to be part of it.”
