Bolton Wanderers sign Aaron Wilbraham

Bolton Wanderers are pleased to announce the signing of Aaron Wilbraham from fellow Sky Bet Championship side Bristol City.

The forward signs a one-year contract at Macron Stadium having spent the past three seasons at Ashton Gate.

Starting his career with Stockport County, Wilbraham moved to Hull City in 2004 and won promotion from Sky Bet League One in his solitary season with the Tigers.

Joining MK Dons the following summer, he was a Sky Bet League Two and Football League Trophy winner with the club in 2007/08 prior to his successful stints with the Canaries, Eagles and Robins.

Speaking to after completing the move, Wilbraham said: "I'm really pleased to get the move over the line and can't wait to get going.

“I've joined the club at an exciting time following their promotion back to the Championship earlier this year and I'm really looking forward to introducing myself to the fans.

“I feel I bring a lot of experience to the table and I'm ready to give my all for Bolton Wanderers in what should be an exciting season for us.”

Whites manager Phil Parkinson added: “I’m really pleased to have got Aaron on board and I’m looking forward to working with him over the coming season.”
