January 14, 2012 Needham Net Two Strikers
Needham Market Football Club have announced the signing of strikers Lee McGlone and Tommy Smith and both players go straight into the squad for tomorrow’s Ryman League One North clash against Maldon & Tiptree.
Lee McGlone joins the club having been granted a free transfer by Leiston, whilst Tommy Smith who is no stranger to Needham Market FC, having served them for several seasons whilst in the Ridgeons Eastern Counties League, makes a welcome return at a time when the team have found goals difficult to come by in the absence of the injured Sam Newson and departed Jose Espinsosa.
Manager Danny Laws commenting on the arrival of the duo said “I’m delighted to have clinched these two signings both of whom will bring experience and quality to the club. I’m sure that this will serve as a massive boost to Needham Market Football Club as we look to get our promotion push back on track. It is no secret that things have not gone our way of late and it was important that we looked to address the shortcomings which were there for all to see”
Director of Football Andy Gould made a point of thanking Chairman David Bugg and Club Secretary Mark Easlea for their commitment in getting the deals for both players rushed through in time for them to be available for the key league fixture against Maldon & Tiptree.
Finally Needham Market Football Club would like to place on record their gratitude to all concerned at Leiston Football Club for their part in the transfer of Lee McGlone, which is greatly appreciated
