Welcome back Ben

There was a familiar face at training on Monday evening as Ben Diamond returned to the Club following his travels around Australia.

Ben made 68 appearances for the Diamonds, scoring 17 goals including a memorable goal on his debut at home to Moneyfields FC in November 2017 before leaving to spend some time travelling. Ben has committed to the Club for the 21/22 season and Assistant Manager, Neil Champelovier is pleased to have him in the squad, “It’s great to have Ben back with the Club. He was brilliant for us before he went away travelling and I know the fans loved him. It’s exciting to have him back and it’s another piece in the jigsaw as we build towards the new season.”

Also signing forms to commit to the Club for the new season on Monday were Liam Dolman, Tom Lorraine, Ryan Hughes, Paddy Casey, Matt Slinn, Jesse Akubuine, Fernando Bell-Toxtle and Alex Collard. Andy Peaks and his team expect to make further signings in the coming weeks as our pre-season matches get underway.
