We are delighted to announce we have made 4 signings today, in time for tomorrows FA Trophy game away to Buxton.
With injuries, suspensions and ineligible players the squad would have been very thin tomorrow. So Dave and John have been working hard all week to bring players in.
From the Manager;
We have 9 players out of tomorrow’s game due to suspension, injury and parent clubs not allowing players to play in the trophy. It’s important we strengthened this week and I’m happy with the acquisitions. Once players return we will have some very good competition for places which we have lacked in previous weeks.
Players signed today are, midfielders Jordan Wynne and Jack Gibney, forward Chris Sharp and defender James Neild.
From the Manager;
James Nield comes in on dual reg from Curzon and will provide defensive cover in all positions. He’s someone we spoke to in pre-season but he was trying to stay in the pro game at the time and took up an offer of a trial with Barnsley. He’s athletic, aggressive and technically very good.
Jordan Wynne has signed and we are looking to get him back to the player he was at Prescott Cables. He come to our attention the year we came up as he was the best player on the pitch against us. He’s not settled anywhere since but there is a player in there and I’m hoping we can help him develop with the environment here. If we get him to that level then then I’m sure he will go onto a higher level of football.
Jack Gibney, who plays for the reserves has signed forms and will be in the squad tomorrow. Jack has a great attitude and he will excite the fans with the pace he has. He’s been playing at Burscough so is up to speed with his match fitness.
Chris fits the profile of the striker we have been looking for since the beginning of the season. He’s a good player in his own right but I think he will bring the best out of the forward players around him. Some of our forward play has been brilliant at times this year and Chris now brings another option to use throughout the season.
