The 30-year-old has committed to Bath City, a team that competes in English football’s sixth division, the National League South. Prior to moving to Twerton Park, he was training with Bristol Rovers, a team in League One.

In a social media post on X, the former name of Twitter, the club stated: “We are thrilled to announce Isaac Vassell’s signing.

“Isaac is a valuable addition to our EFL team and is expected to compete tomorrow night.

Isaac, welcome to Twerton Park.

Bath, who are now in fourth place, are aiming for promotion to the National League. They presently lead Maidstone United in the play-offs by three points and are eighteen points behind league leaders Yeovil Town. On Tuesday, February 27, the Romans host Braintree Town at home. It will be Vassell’s first game with his new team.

Cardiff City, Birmingham City’s Championship opponents, was Vassell’s last club. In 2019, they signed him for an unknown sum. Over the course of two seasons, he made 24 appearances for Birmingham and scored one goal, which came in a victory over Sheffield Wednesday in 2017. He had a difficult time at St Andrew’s due to injuries, and he had an anterior cruciate ligament injury a few weeks after leaving Luton Town.The Newquay-born forward played a few games for the Bluebirds’ under-21 team, but he was unable to establish himself in the first team at the Welsh club and was subsequently released. The other clubs in his career include Plymouth Argyle, where he started in 2011, and had loan spells with Truro City, Bideford, and Weymouth before joining Truro permanently in 2014. His most prolific scoring spell was 16 goals in 49 appearances for Truro in the Southern League Premier Division. Until the summer of 2022, he was signed with Cardiff, and his last competitive game was against his former club, Luton Town.
