Holden and Bakinson join development group

City have completed the signing of youngsters Rory Holden and Tyreeq Bakinson.

Holden, 20, joins from Derry City and Bakinson, 18, arrives from Luton Town – with both linking up with the club’s development group.

Northern Irish forward Holden has recently been on trial at Ashton Gate and took part in the club’s Open Training Session this week.

He has made 16 senior appearances for Derry’s first team, in the League of Ireland and Europa League, over the past two years.

Holden has put pen to paper on a two-year deal, with a further year option.

Bakinson is a central midfielder who joined Luton’s Academy setup as a ten-year-old.

He made his senior debut on the final day of the 2015/16 season in a 4-1 win over Exeter City and has played in five Checkatrade Trophy matches since.

A former team-mate of Freddie Hinds, who also joined from Luton, Bakinson has signed a three-year deal at Ashton Gate, with a further year option.

Now both youngsters will be aiming to make their mark in BS3 and are expected to be regulars for Luke Williams’ Under-23s this term.
