Ex-England international pitches up in Japanese second tier

Former England striker Jay Bothroyd has signed for Jubilo Iwata, the Japanese second tier club said on Tuesday. The much-travelled forward had been without a team since leaving the Thai side Muangthong United last year. No terms or contract length were revealed by the three-time Japanese champions.

The 32-year-old began his career with Arsenal before joining Coventry City, then Perugia in Italy but returned to England and played for various sides including Cardiff City, Charlton Athletic, Queens Park Rangers and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
