Bradbrook And Brown Agree To Stay

Stowmarket Town are delighted to announce James Bradbrook and Ollie Brown have both agreed to stay with the club for the 2021-22 season.

Goalkeeper Bradbrook has been an ever present in between the sticks for the Old Gold and Blacks since signing permanently in 2019, having previously been at the club during a loan spell two years earlier.

Bradbrook has made 71 appearances for Stow and has claimed more than 30 clean sheets during his time so far at Greens Meadow.

Defender Brown will enter a fifth consecutive season with Stow, having joined ahead of the club’s return to the Premier Division in 2017.

Brown wore the captain’s armband during Stow’s unbeaten league campaign in 2019-20 and has featured 140 times for the first team.

The full back’s 2020-21 season was cut short back in September when he suffered a fractured fibula while in action, but is expected to make a full recovery in time for the start of next season.

“Bradders is one of the best goalkeepers in the area,” Stow manager Paul Musgrove said. “In Potts (Danny Potter), he has one of the best goalkeeping coaches in the area too.

“He has continued to improve and progress as a goalkeeper while he’s been here.

“Browny has been outstanding for the club ever since he signed. He is a great person to have around the club.”
