Aston Oxborough joins Bees on loan

We’re thrilled to announce the signing of Aston Oxborough who joins the Club on a season-long loan from Norwich City.

 

The goalkeeper will remain at The Hive London until the end of the 2021/22 season. 

 

Oxborough came through the Canaries’ academy after being scouted by the Club whilst he was aged 12.

An England call-up soon followed for the goalie as he went on to make four appearances for the national team’s U16 side.

 

Since then, the 23-year-old has made a number of appearances in the Premier League 2 for the Norfolk-based side but a lengthy injury has kept him sidelined for the past year.

 

Aston said: “It is really good to get the deal done! I have had a very long 12 months with my injury, so I am really pleased to be given the opportunity and I am now looking forward to getting started.

 

“There is a lot of ambition at the Club. I know a few faces here already and they have only had good things to say.

 

“The competition for places within the team is a healthy thing to have as it means that we can all bring the best out of each other.

 

“I am a tall goalkeeper who likes to command his area and come for crosses.

 

“I am looking forward to being a part of a team again which is something I have missed out on whilst I have been injured. I am also looking to get as many minutes as possible under my belt.”

 

Welcome to The Hive London, Aston! The deal is subject to the usual regulatory processes.
