Joe Lennox could join Bath City after impressing against Odd Down
Joe Lennox could join Bath City before the weekend after scoring in last night’s Somerset Premier Cup quarter-final win over Odd Down.
The 21-year-old, who spent a month on loan at Mayday Trust Park in March 2011, is a free agent after being released by League 2 club Plymouth Argyle.
His agent approached City for a trial earlier this week and Lennox took his chance to impress by opening the scoring against the Downers, with Charlie Griffin’s strike sealing a comfortable 2-0 victory.
Head coach Lee Howells is looking to add a couple of new faces to the City squad before this weekend's trip to Dover Athletic.

And with Exeter City having a 24-hour recall clause in Elliott Chamberlain’s newly-extended loan agreement, a forward is a priority.
“It all depends on money but we have two months of the season to go and it would be good to freshen things up,” said Howells.
“We were pleased with Joe when he was here before and tried to get in touch when Plymouth let him go but he’s changed his mobile number.
“So it was good when his agent got in touch at the start of the week and asked if we wanted to give him a game. He played well – he has pace about him and scores goals.”
Howells was also pleased with the young players who were given a run-out last night, with defenders Dan Bowman, Ryan Mitchell and Lewis Shipp all catching the eye.
Ollie Knowles, a first-year professional at Exeter City, also came on as substitute for Josh Low, who got another hour of football under his belt.
“The young lads did well,” said Howells. “Odd Down were always going to be physical but we stood up to it well and it was a good night.
“The only disappointment was that we couldn’t give Jordan Walker a run-out because he was cup-tied.”
