BURTON ALBION SIGN AARON AMADI-HOLLOWAY ON ONE-YEAR DEAL

23 July 2021

Burton Albion are delighted to confirm the signing of striker Aaron Amadi-Holloway on a one-year deal, subject to international clearance.

The 28-year-old has been on trial all summer with the Brewers, scoring in our 3-0 win away at Bognor Regis Town, following spells in Australia and India.

Now he becomes manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s 11th signing of the summer and adds further competition up front.

Amadi-Holloway began his career with in his hometown of Cardiff as part of the Bluebirds' youth set-up before joining Bristol City, before heading back to Wales to join Newport County until the end of the 2013/14 season.

A two-year spell at Wycombe Wanderers followed with Amadi-Holloway building plenty of League One experience with Oldham Athletic, Fleetwood Town and Shrewsbury Town over the next three years.

More recently, Amadi-Holloway spent the 2019/20 season playing for Brisbane Roar in the Australian A-League under the management of Robbie Fowler, and followed the Liverpool legend last term to the Indian Super League to play for SC East Bengal.

“I’m really happy to sign for Burton Albion,” said Amadi-Holloway. “I’ve been here for a few weeks now so it feels really good to get a contract together and get back to playing in League One.

“I’ve had a good few weeks here. It’s been tough, not knowing where you’ll be, but you’ve just got to give it your all.

“This is my 10th pre-season now and it’s by far the hardest one I’ve done! It’s got to be a combination of the gaffer, Dino and Pablo!

“I’m somebody who creates a lot of things for others, I’ll cause problems for the defence and always put in the hard work.”

Manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink said: “We’re pleased to get Aaron in, he’s done well with us on trial and got a goal on our training camp.

“He offers us something a little bit different up front and provides us with some more good competition.

“He’s looking forward to getting back into English football after spells in Australia and India and we’re really pleased to sign him.”

Aaron will wear squad number 19 in his time at the Pirelli Stadium. Welcome to Burton Albion, Aaron!
