Omar Sowunmi joined the Glovers after impressing the Club in a trial match at the end of the 2014/15 season. 



The 6'6” defender graduated through the Ipswich Youth Academy, featuring heavily for the Under-18 and Under-21 academy teams. 



Sowunmi failed to make a first-team appearance at Portman Road but enjoyed loan spells at Braintree in 2014 and Lowestoft a year later before arriving in Somerset. 

Becoming an ever-present under the tenure of Darren Way, Sowunmi scooped a host of end of season awards at the end of last season as well as captaining the side for the first time.

Attracting attention from higher levels, the 22-year-old signed a new two-year deal this summer and will play an integral part in 2018/19.
