A new home for Holmes

Fleet have added their second signing of the week with the capture of Australian U23 goalkeeper Jordan Holmes, following international clearance coming through.

The 6ft 3in Sydney-born stopper played for Rockdale City and Sydney United at youth level in his homeland before moving to England to sign for Bournemouth in 2013.

He progressed through the Cherries’ U18 and U21 squads and travelled with the first-team on several occasions in 2015, including to Liverpool and Southampton.

His first taste of senior action came with a spell on loan at Weymouth in 2015/16 and then Eastbourne Borough the following season, where he played against the Fleet in April 2017 before leaving the field injured.

He captained the Bournemouth U23s and played 18 times for them in his penultimate season at Dean Court, going on to sign a contract extension in summer 2018.

Holmes moved into the SPL with St Mirren in January this year, where he was on the bench for visits to both Celtic Park and Ibrox.

He is also vice-captain of Australia’s Olympic football squad, the Olyroos, with Tokyo 2020 in his sights.
