City sign Rowe and Gilmartin

City have signed Tommy Rowe and Rene Gilmartin from Doncaster Rovers and Colchester United respectively.

Versatile Rowe, 30, who can play in centre midfield, left midfield and left back, has agreed a two-year contract with 32-year-old goalkeeper Gilmartin also putting pen to paper on a two-year deal.

Former Doncaster Rovers captain Rowe started his career in the Manchester United Academy before moves to Stockport County, Peterborough United, Wolves, Scunthorpe United and Doncaster Rovers.

Rowe has twice won promotion with Stockport County and Peterborough United, respectively, while he also led the Posh to their first major honour - the Football League Trophy in 2014.

Dublin-born Gilmartin has represented St Kevin’s Boys, Walsall, Watford (twice), Plymouth and St Patrick’s before he joined the U’s in July 2017.

The shotstopper has also played on loan at Hednesford, Yeovil Town and Crawley Town during his career.

City Chief Executive Officer Mark Ashton said: “I am delighted to welcome these two very good players to Bristol City. They bring a wealth of experience to the squad and both have big roles to play at this football club.

“Tommy `will be an invaluable figure both on and off the pitch and his versatility will no doubt be another major boost.

“We are delighted to have acquired the services of Rene, who will also work alongside the younger keepers at the Academy and across the City teams.

“It’s really important to have that extra competition for places and I am sure they will both make a big contribution to the squad.”
