Blues Youngster Loaned to Tigers
09-11-2018 I News Headlines
Vanarama National League South club Gloucester City have signed Odin Bailey on loan from SkyBet Championship side Birmingham City.

It is a first loan spell away from the Blues for Bailey, who has been with the club since under-7s, but has yet to make his first-team bow.

 

Not only was he also one of Birmingham’s star performers in the run to last season’s FA Youth Cup semi-final; he went away with Gary Monk’s squad on pre-season to Austria and Germany and was an unused substitute in the 1-0 defeat of Ipswich Town in March.

 

The 18-year-old creative midfielder, who hails from Bartley Green, has been a regular with the Blues` under-23s this season, making six appearances and scoring 3 goals.

 

He also appeared against Solihull Moors and Kidderminster Harriers during pre-season netting in both fixtures.

 

Manager Chris Todd told http://www.gloucestercityafc.com: “I am delighted to bring Odin to Gloucester City. I cannot thank Garry Monk enough for making it happen. He is a very talented player who I’m sure will excite the fans and add energy to the squad. To get a player with Odin’s quality to the football club is exciting for everyone.”

 

Monk was equally enthusiastic about Bailey’s move: “Odin’s is one of a number of potential talents at the club and this will be his first loan move away from here. Like all young players, he needs first-team experience at a competitive standard. It will be good for him to work under Chris and I feel this is the perfect proving ground for him to make the next step in his development.”

 

Gloucester face Hemel Hempstead Town away tomorrow.
