Bath City have re-signed midfielder Alex Russell on a one-year deal.

The much-travelled 38-year-old made 12 appearances for the Blue Square Bet Premier side last season before leaving for Yeovil Town in January.

But he struggled for first-team opportunities at Huish Park and was released in the summer.

"Alex Russell had a massive influence on the side last year and we're absolutely delighted," boss Adie Britton told the club website.external-link

"He'll be a really important cog in the wheels this season."

Russell has made 566 career appearances and counts Rochdale, Cambridge United, Torquay, Bristol City, Cheltenham Town and Exeter among his former clubs.
