Bullard signs for Holland FC
A NON-LEAGUE football team have pulled off an “unbelievable” coup by signing former Premier League and England star Jimmy Bullard.
The former Wigan, Hull, Fulham and Ipswich Town midfielder - who retired from professional football yesterday - has agreed to turn out for Kent Blaxill Essex and Suffolk Border League side Holland FC.
He has also agreed to help coach the club’s promotion-winning first team and could make his debut in Saturday’s premier division match at Harwich and Parkeston.
