Experienced forward Oli joined Avenue on a month’s loan from neighbours Guiseley on November 4, linking up once more with former boss Mark Bower. Having returned to Nethermoor, the talented front-man made the permanent switch to Bradford towards the end of January. Wakefield-born Johnson started his career at Nostell Miners Welfare before attracting the interest of Stockport County in 2008. After seven goals in 38 League One appearances Oli moved to Norwich City for an undisclosed fee, but starts were limited despite a good scoring record, and he joined Yeovil twice on loan before moving to Oxford United in 2012. A spell at York City followed before Johnson joined Guiseley in 2013, gaining promotion to the National League in 2015.
