International Signing Confirmed

Latest From Homelands with latest update........

…………….The latest news to come from Homelands is the loan deal signing of a 23 year old international player who  we cannot name at this time until the full international clearance has become available  in order for the player to join the ever strengthening  squad being assembled for the onslaught on winning the Southern Counties East title for 2015/16 and Ashford United moving on to the Ryman League.

At the recent agm dinner and presentation of the SCEFL, owner Don Crosbie confirmed his intention to assemble a squad of players that would blend both youth and experience for the coming season. He  said .”We  have signed Paul Booth at age 38 both as a prolific  goal scorer, who is intent on a training career within football once he eventually hangs up his boots and other proven Ryman and above experienced players, such as Tommo (Craig Thompson) Lysie (Danny Lye)and Michael Yianni.  Don’t forget  that we have also put on contract for the season both Stuart(Zanone) and one of the best up and coming keepers who has trialled for England Under 19’s , Joe Mant”

United are set to train on the new 3g pitch at least twice a week in order to maintain both fitness levels and also to improve  set piece play. The schedule of works is on track for the ground to be ready for the start of the forthcoming league programme.

 

**UPDATE**

The news update is that the loan deal has now been finalised for the  Gibraltar International Jamie Bosio to join Ashford United in their quest to gain promotion for the coming season having previously been runners up in the SCEFL at the last two attempts..

Jamie has International duties to attend to for the next few weeks and will join Ashford in early September. He plays as a left full back but has also experience at playing in a defensive midfield role .
