Crewe sign ex-Newport forward Bogle

Crewe Alexandra have signed experienced forward Omar Bogle on a two-year contract following his release by Newport County.

The 31-year-old scored 24 goals in 71 league appearances during two seasons with County.

He began his career at Solihull Moors and his previous clubs also include Grimsby Town, Wigan, Cardiff and Charlton Athletic.

Bogle is Crewe's fifth summer signing following Jack Lankester, Kane Hemmings, Jamie Knight and Max Sanders.

Lee Bell's side will start the new season with an away game against Barrow, having lost to Crawley in the League Two play-off final at Wembley in May.
