Player Update

We are pleased to confirm the signing of Ben Garwood. Defender, Ben is a local player who completed 12 months at Chesterfield FC before spending a year at Notts County FC where he made the 1st team bench a few times. He has impressed Andy Peaks and supporters alike in the recent friendlies where he wore the No. 2 shirt.

Andy said, “Ben is a really good prospect who came to us highly recommended. I know other local clubs were also looking at him so I’m delighted he has committed to the Club”

In further player news, we can announce that Matt Slinn and Patrick ‘Paddy’ Casey have both accepted contract terms for the new season. Both players are well known to supporters and have impressed with their attitude and desire.

Paddy is a product of our Academy and Head of Academy, Scott Carlin, is particularly thrilled to see the Academy’s efforts beginning to result in players coming through to the 1st team.

Matt is a local player who came to us from Northampton Town FC’s Academy in the summer of 2019.

Manager, Andy Peaks commented “I’m really pleased to be able to offer both of these young players contracts for the new season. They both work hard, have great attitudes and listen to the advice that’s given to them. Having them on contracts means that the Club’s investment in them is protected as I’m sure they will have scouts looking at them this season”

Nat Gosnal-Tyler has also signed Southern League forms for the new season.
