An experienced Football League striker if ever there was one, Alex Revell arrived at the Lamex towards the end of the January 2018 transfer window. At the tender age of 34-years-old, it's no shock that Boro' gaffer Darren Sarll swooped to sign the striker on a free transfer from Northampton Town.

Born in Cambridge, Revell unsurprisingly found his hometown club to be the ideal place to start his football career. After graduating from the Us youth set-up, there were a number of first team opportunities during his four years as a senior player there. The striker also spent time on loan at Kettering Town.

He left the Abbey in summer 2004, dropping out of the League and linking up with Braintree Town; then of the Conference South. In helping them gain promotion during the 2005-6 campaign, the League came calling again. Brighton & Hove Albion signed him up and off he went to the Withdean. Here, he scored his first pro hattrick too.

In January 2008, Revell made the move to Essex coast with Southend United. He turned out at Roots Hall for 18 months, playing his last game for the Shrimpers versus Swindon Town in August 2009. Three days later, he was off to the County Ground on loan. And, yet, first team chances soon started to run dry and he returned to Southend after Swindon opted not to make the switch permanent.

More Football League experience was forthcoming, however, with no shortage of suitors. It had been thought he had joined Wycombe on a freebie in January 2010, but Revell had already turned out for two clubs that season. In the end, he moved to the Chairboys on a three-month emergency loan. He was able to sign a contract at Adams Park in May and was offered an extended deal that summer. Revell opted for a move to Leyton Orient instead, however.

After a season at Orient, it was off to Rotherham United and stayed there for four years. It was his longest spell at a club since leaving Cambridge United in 2004. With the Millers, Revell won two promotions; scoring twice in the League One playoff final in 2014 and helping the club into the Championship.

Then came a spell at Cardiff City in January 2015, though he fell out of favour at the Welsh club and ended up at Wigan Athletic on loan in November 2015. MK Dons swooped to sign him on a free in February 2016, before the forward moved on again; this time to Northampton Town in June 2016.

With such a sheer amount of experience to offer, Boro' know they're getting a lad who knows what it takes to succeed in the League. Signing on an 18-month deal, he knew he likely had to wait to replicate his playoff heroics with Sarll's side in the lower mid-table region. The signature was greeted with delight and excitement; fans eager to see what Revell could bring to the Lamex.
