Please welcome Owen James to the Eyrie.

Bedford Town Football Club is delighted to welcome the signing of Owen James. The 22 year old forward has joined us from Evesham United, where he spent this season.

Owen spent his youth at Oxford United, joining their academy aged eight. Aged 17, he signed a year three professional contract with Oxford and made his debut in 2018 against Blackburn Rovers. During his time at the Kassam, he had loan spells at Bracknell, Chalfont St Peter and Oxford City. When he left Oxford, he joined Stratford Town and played in their FA Cup first round tie against Shrewsbury, live on ITV.

Speaking to, Manager Paul Davis commented "I've worked with Owen before, as part of our Stratford team that went far in the FA Cup. He has great skill about him, which will cause problems for teams in our division. We welcome him to the Eyrie and look forward to seeing him involved."

Owen has been signed in time to play tonight at Redditch in our PitchingIn Southern League Premier Division Central fixture. This game kicks off at 7:45pm, and full text commentary is available on twitter for those of you who are unable to make the journey up to follow the Eagles.
