City have allowed goalkeeper Kieran Hodges to join Southern Football League Division One South and West side Mangotsfield United on a dual registration deal.
Manager Jerry Gill said, “After an enquiry from Mangotsfield Utd I have agreed that Kieran Hodges will sign on dual registration allowing him to gain valuable first team game time. Kieran will continue to be a Bath City player but we both felt the time was right for him to go out and be involved in competitive football on a regular basis. This has allowed me to promote young Harvey Wiles-Richards up to become first team number two goalkeeper. He is a 1st year scholar on the Bath City college programme and regular in our youth team. Having seen him play on several occasions, I have been impressed with his leadership and communication skills along with his technical ability especially his distribution. Its another local talent we have recognised from within our youth set up and look forward to watching him develop further with us. “
