Bromley Football Club have confirmed the signing of forward Joe Quigley from Maidstone United.
The 22 year old Republic of Ireland U21 international stands at 6’3″, and joins up with Neil Smith’s squad ahead of the weekend’s FA Cup clash with Gloucester City.
Quigley, born in Hillingdon, started his career at AFC Bournemouth, where he spent just short of 10 years as both a youth and first team player. During his time with the Cherries, he went on no less than eight loan spells, including two stints at Gillingham, as well as time at Poole Town, Torquay United, Wrexham, Woking, Newport County and Boreham Wood most recently.
After his departure from Bournemouth, the imposing front man made the switch to Maidstone United, from where he joins Bromley, having appeared against the Ravens as a substitute in the 1-0 victory at the Gallagher Stadium earlier this month.
Neil Smith was pleased to add to his squad, and said; “People may think this is a last minute signing, but Joe is someone I’ve kept an eye on for a while now. When playing against him during his time at Woking, he impressed me, and I grabbed the opportunity to bring another good quality forward in. He’s a good player – a Republic of Ireland U21 international. Hopefully we can get the best out of him.”
Quigley himself added; “It’s great to get the deal over the line now. It’s something I’ve heard about for a few weeks now and I’m pleased to get it done. I was very impressed with the way Bromley set up when they played Maidstone a couple of weeks ago and it definitely played a part in me wanting to come here.”
Joe will wear the number 26 shirt, and is available for selection for Saturday’s FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round tie against Gloucester City.
