AFC Rushden & Diamonds are delighted to announce the signing of Tommy Berwick.
The 27 year old striker has been most recently with Daventry Town, where he has had three spells, including scoring 52 goals for them in the season they won the UCL Premier title. He then impressed at Step 4 level for Daventry in his second spell there, with 30 league / cup goals in the 2010/11 season at Step 4 level, despite starting the season elsewhere.
He then had spells at Leamington, playing at Step 3 level, as well as at Redditch and Stratford Town before joining Corby Town for the start of the 2013-14 season. During that season he also had spells with Hemel Hempstead Town and Stourbridge Town before returning to Daventry for the third time in March 2014. He has played 11 games for Daventry this season, scoring four times.
Diamonds website afcdiamonds.com asked Tommy what Diamonds fans can expect: “Well I am a winner, the last time I played in the UCL I had a great partnership with Dunkley as I played on the last man and read his flick ons. However I am happy to play with anyone or up top on my own, what they will see is 100% effort, all action, and ultimately goals.
“It’s a great move for me, I haven’t really been settled since I left Corby last season, and when I spoke with Andy and Paul it was an easy decision. I have played at a higher level but this is a level I know very well, I have played in the UCL, won the UCL and finished top scorer in the UCL, and I am really looking forward to the challenge and hopefully help Diamonds to promotion this season.”
Manager Andy Peaks also spoke to afcdiamonds.com “I am really pleased to sign Tommy. He’s a proven goalscorer and comes with a great pedigree, having played at a higher level consistently. He’s very hungry and I have been very impressed by his attitude, I know he’s looking forward to the challenge and can’t wait to get started”.
Tommy goes into the squad for Saturday’s fixture away at Holbeach United.
