Maidenhead United are delighted to announce the signing of centre-forward Ryan Bird.
6 foot 4 inch Slough-born Bird was top scorer for our National League rivals Dover Athletic last season with 20 goals and he arrives at York Road with plenty of experience behind him. Starting out in local football, his goalscoring exploits with Burnham earned Bird a big move to EFL outfit Portsmouth. Whilst at Fratton Park, he enjoyed loan spells with Havant & Waterlooville and Cambridge United whom he later joined on a full time basis. Bird enjoyed further tastes of EFL football at Yeovil Town and Newport County in between a spell at National Leaguers Eastleigh. Bird arrives at York Road after a prolific season with Dover including a goal against Maidenhead in a 1-1 draw at Crabble last October.

Ryan Bird is our fourth exciting summer signing, joining Max Worsfold, Ayo Obileye and Herson Alves in signing up for the new season. Why not sign up yourself today for a 2018/19 season ticket to be one of the first to see our new boys in National League action for the Magpies?
