New Signing – John Dean

AFC Rushden & Diamonds are delighted to welcome former player John Dean back to the Club.

As supporters will remember, John – equally at home as a striker or wide midfielder – was part of the Diamonds squad that won promotion from the Southern League Division One Central in 2018 and remained with the Club for the 2018-19 season at Step 3. Following his departure, John went on to play for Wisbech Town, Corby Town and St. Ives Town, before suffering an injury that would keep him out of action for an extended period of time.

Regaining fitness with Northants Combination side Corby Strip Mills this season, John is now ready to step back up to Step 3 and manager Chris Nunn is pleased to add him to the group: “Chatting to John earlier this week he only had good things to say about our Club and was desperate to come back. I really like John’s attitude and work ethic and having spoken to Andy Peaks prior to re-signing John, he was very complimentary. He’ll add lots of pace and endeavour and I’m sure the supporters will welcome him back.”

Subject to league approval, John will be in the squad for Monday’s game against St. Ives Town.
