Early career

Born in Cardiff, Holloway was a part of the Cardiff City youth system before joining Bristol City in 2011. On 24 November that year he was loaned to Conference Premier club Bath City until January, alongside Joe Bryan. [3] He made five appearances on loan at Bath but was released by Bristol City in January 2014 having not made a first team appearance for them. [4]

On 12 February 2014 Holloway joined Newport County [4] and made his Football League debut in the League Two 4–1 loss at Morecambe on 11 March 2014 as a 65th-minute substitute for Robbie Willmott. [5] He made three more substitute appearances and was released by Newport at the end of the 2013–14 season.

Wycombe Wanderers

Holloway signed for Wycombe Wanderers of League Two on 10 August 2014 on a deal until January 2015. [6] On 4 October, he scored his first career goal, an added-time header from Joe Jacobson's corner kick to secure a 1–1 home draw against Northampton Town. [7] The following 2 May, he scored again in a 3–2 win in the reverse fixture to qualify the Chairboys for the play-offs. [8]

A week later in the first leg of the semi-finals, Holloway scored in a 3–2 victory at Plymouth Argyle (5–3 aggregate). [9] In the final at Wembley Stadium against Southend United on 23 May, he scored a sudden-death penalty in the shootout after a 1–1 draw, but his team lost it 7–6. [10]

On 20 January 2017 Holloway returned to Oldham Athletic on a permanent deal. [15] He scored four times in 42 games in 2017–18 as they were relegated to League Two, [16] including a last-minute winner as a late substitute in a 2–1 victory against rivals Bury at Boundary Park on 24 October. [17]
