14th March 2019

Tommy Warrilow has caught up with the media team for the latest squad update, ahead of our home game with East Grinstead Town this weekend.

We are delighted to welcome defender Jake McIntyre from VCD Athletic, and midfielder/forward Laurent Mendy from Whyteleafe.

Both players have previously played under Tommy Warrilow from their time at Thamesmead Town, so are also familiar with the likes of Bode Anidugbe and Danny Parish too.

The gaffer told us:

“Jake is predominately a left back with a great left foot, he’s 6 foot 3, he’s big and powerful, and also very good in the air, he can also play at centre back or in midfield. Laurent comes in having recently played at Greenwich Borough and more recently Whyteleafe, he’s a very talented player who we can utilise in more than one position if we need to, he can play more forward as well as midfield.

Both of these players have really good ability and great attitudes which is exactly what I want for this dressing room. Fans know that I won’t just bring in anyone for the sake of it, they have to be right and these are exactly that.

Sam Hasler unfortunately has had to go back to Folkestone Invicta. He was only on a one month initial loan deal, we were hoping to extend that but sadly the injury he picked up against Ramsgate on Saturday means he’ll be out for a few weeks so he’ll be an Invicta player once again. Good luck to Sam and thank you for your efforts!

Jay May also came off injured at the weekend, we are monitoring his injury situation but are confident he will be back on the pitch any day soon.

It’s been a very good week off the pitch, securing these two players will only strengthen us as a squad, and with 8 games to go, we need to be at our best and making sure we aren’t short of players for the final run in.”

Thank you to Sam Hasler for your few appearances and that wonder goal against Whyteleafe! Welcome to Jake and Laurent.

Come on you Nuts and Bolts!
