Double Signing

24 July 2017

The final touches to the squad were completed today at Bisham Abbey, when Paul Doswell announced the signings of Josh Taylor and Jamie Butler.  "Josh Taylor made my mind up within 15 minutes of watching him play against Havant on Saturday. He was highly recommended to us by Mickey Adams and David Hughes at Midas Sports, and having seen him play for Orient and score two goals we were surprised he wasn't offered a deal there. Josh is a name that very few people were aware of due to him spending the last four years doing a degree course on a football scholarship, but he's had a good football education with Crystal Palace. He has signed a two year contract at the club and I'm fascinated to see him develop because he's a very different type of player, and at 22 has plenty of time to improve."

"Jamie Butler has also signed a three month contract, which was vital due to Ross Worner's knee injury. Ross's scan was ok but we still expect him to be out for 4-6 weeks due to the swelling. I've known Jamie Butler for many years and always admired his goalkeeping style and ability when he's played against us. He's currently training with the Chelsea loan group, and hopefully his time with us gives him the opportunity to play League football to which he aspires."
