Lyle Taylor bolsters attack

12 January 2024

Cambridge United are pleased to announce the signing of Lyle Taylor on a contract until the end of the season…

The 33-year-old forward joins the Club after leaving Wycombe Wanderers to help strengthen United's attack.

Taylor has enjoyed a long and successful career in the game, starting his professional career out at Millwall, where U’s Head Coach Neil Harris was a player.

After moving on from Millwall, moves to Concord Rangers, AFC Bournemouth, Falkirk, Sheffield United and Scunthorpe United followed, before Taylor enjoyed great success at AFC Wimbledon and Charlton Athletic, scoring 76 goals in 194 league games for the two clubs.

Taylor joined Nottingham Forest in 2020, where he spent two seasons, before most recently playing for Wycombe Wanderers, ahead of today’s move.

“I am excited to get started,” Taylor said. “The final stages have been done really quickly but I am glad to be here and looking forward to it.

“The only thing you can ask for as a footballer is to be wanted and I have played my best football when I have been wanted and given the responsibility to be the man up top to carry the team forward.

“Hopefully that is what will happen here and we can bring some short term success and solidify the team’s position in the league.”

Neil Harris said, “Lyle has been a proven goal scorer over a period of time and has got fantastic experience at this level and leagues above as well.

“He is up to speed now after having six weeks at Wycombe and we think we are getting a player who is coming in hungry, determined and has a desire to score goals.

“I have known Lyle a long time, I know his character and I am extremely excited to welcome him to the Club.”

Lyle will wear number 18 and is the Club’s first addition during this year’s January Transfer Window.
