Conference National side Cambridge United have signed up former Yeovil Town winger Billy Gibson for next season. The 21 year old has agreed a one year contract that will see him contracted until the summer of 2013.
Gibson made just 13 appearances for the club across his two years at Huish Park, and disappeared down the pecking order sharply upon manager Gary Johnson's arrival, eventually ending up on loan at Braintree Town at the end of last season.
Cambridge boss Jez George has told his club's website that it was that loan spell in Essex that brought the former Watford Academy player's abilities to his notice:
"Billy is a player that we identified at the end of last season while he was on loan at Braintree. He has a good pedigree, having come through Watford's Academy, and is a young player with great potential. Billy will give us good balance, and will be capable of creating and scoring goals.
"He is predominantly right footed, has fantastic technical ability and composure on the ball plus good delivery from wide areas with both feet. We have done a lot of work in the last few weeks to secure his signature and whilst some of our fans might not know too much about him, we see Billy as a really important addition to our squad and a player that will be a real asset for the club."
