Bramble turned out in the team's first pre-season friendly against Cork City which they won 6-2, after reports that he was merely training with the team to keep up fitness levels.
And earlier coach Ian Hendon said that he'd play a part in a couple of early games to prove himself after which the manager Sam Allardyce would make a decision on him.
