The former Man City trainee has played for a number of clubs in recent years, featuring in sides such as Boston United, King’s Lynn, Bradford PA, Hyde, Chelmsford City and Maidenhead United.

Timms has also had trials at a number of clubs including Norwich City and Sheffield United.

The goalkeeper announced he had been in talks with a Scottish Championship side, tweeting “I was going to sign in the Scottish Championship last week but it broke down over wages. So back on the search.” (@AshleyTimms1)

When questioned if he has ever considered a move abroad, the talented goalkeeper said he “Might look to play abroad in a year or two.” (@AshleyTimms1)

A number of British keepers have gone abroad to see out their career, with players such as Scott Carson playing for Turkish side, Bursaspor from 2011 to 2013 and Roy Carroll playing for a number of foreign clubs including Odense BK, OFI Crete and Olympiacos.

Ashley Timms will possibly follow in the footsteps of the established Grimsby Town goalkeeper, James McKeown who was at Boston United in 2010/11 but made a move to Dutch side RKSV Leonidas in 2011.
