OXFORD City have sold Ewan Clark to Sky Bet Championship club Bristol City.

The 19-year-old wide midfielder makes the four-division jump from Vanarama National League South after an impressive start to 2022.

He has signed a two-year deal and the fee is officially undisclosed, but the Oxford Mail understands City will be paid a five-figure sum plus add-ons.

Clark, from Northway, is a success story for the Court Place Farm club, coming through their Under 23 team and studying with Velocity education programme.

City said in a statement: “The development of all players is a particular focus for Oxford City FC as evidenced by the number of players who have moved up the football pyramid after successful stints at the club.

“We are therefore very proud and pleased to have played a part in Ewan’s development.

“Everyone at Oxford City wishes Ewan the very best of luck in the future and we thank him for his performances throughout his time at the club.”

The teenager goes into the Under 23s setup at Ashton Gate.

Clark scored two goals in 15 appearances for City, making his debut as a late substitute at Slough Town on January 2.

The rising star opened his account in the 5-0 win over Tonbridge Angels in March, before adding to his tally in a 3-1 home victory over St Albans City on May 2.

He was studying for a Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in Sport programme at Velocity, City’s educational academy for 16 to 23-year-olds hoping for a career in sport.
