Saddlers miss out on Gowling

Saddlers miss out on Gowling

Despite local press stating we were close to signing Josh Gowling the Bournemouth defender has signed for League One rivals Carlisle on a free transfer.

BBC Radio Solent reported that the 24-year-old has agreed a two-year deal with the Cumbrians, having been out of contract at Dean Court.

Ourselves and Hereford were also in the running for Gowling's signature.

The player confirmed his exit from the Cherries by posting a message on his own page of a social networking site.

Then Gowling told Carlisle's official website: 'It has all happened quite quickly. It's been a fairly easy decision for me to make. People I spoke to all had good things to say about the club.'

Plan B anyone....a certain Mr Moore has been rumoured, but in truth your guess is as good as mine at the moment, but the natives are getting restless with the lack of transfer activity.
