Aberystwyth Town FC are delighted to welcome Oliver Basey on loan from Championship side Birmingham City. The young goalkeeper joins Town until the end of the season and is eligible for selection tomorrow night as we welcome Haverfordwest County to Aberystwyth University Park Avenue Stadium!
Turning 21-years-old next week, Oli joined The Blues as a first-year professional in July 2021 after a successful trial period, during which he kept a clean sheet as Birmingham City beat Sheffield United at Bramall Lane to win the Professional Development League National Title.
His development at The Blues has included multiple loan moves to Barwell and Hednesford Town, as well as regular outings for Steve Spooners Under-21s across both the Premier League 2 and the PDL.
The goalkeeper has also been a part of the travelling parties for Men's First Team pre-season training camps in Portugal and Spain ahead of the 2022/23 and 2023/24 seasons respectively.
As a junior, Basey progressed through the youth set-up at Sunderland and was a regular for the Black Cats in the Under-18s Premier League.
First Team Manager Anthony Williams said:
"We’re really pleased to get Ollie in. He comes to us on loan from Birmingham City having previously gained senior experience whilst on loan in the National League North, which adds to his playing time with Birmingham u21 over the past couple of seasons. He’s come recommended by the coaching staff there and following his involvement in training this week its easy to see that he is a keeper with real quality.
With Sam Green moving on it was important to ensure that we had 2 quality keepers within the squad for the 2nd phase of the season and with Dave and Oli in place we certainly have that."
Oliver told us:
"I’m honoured to be given the opportunity to play for this club and I look forward to the challenge of playing in a new league. I have already been made to feel very welcome and can’t wait to play."
Croeso i Geredigion ac i Gymru, Oli! / Welcome to Ceredigion and to Wales, Oli!
The Club also confirms the departure of goalkeeper Sam Green and wishes him the best going forward.
