Young Defender Is A Moatman

Defender Signs In
Central defender Louis Anthony arrives at the club from Stone Old Alleynians. Louis has impressed in both of the club's friendly fixtures so far in pre-season and has looked a big, strong, physical presence. Louis has good experience at the level, and is a very solid addition to the developing squad. Speaking on his new addition manager Carl Abbott said: "Louis is one that we had just been working away at in the background for a few weeks now, and really pleased to finally get this confirmed. He is a big strong lad, who will give us that physical presence we feel we need, especially in light of going into a new season at the football club for the first time without Alex Morris and Mason Frizelle. That was the bedrock of our success here previously and it is important that we can foster something similar in this new group”.
Last Kick Agony For Rovers
The last kick of the match handed the home side the win. Many changes to both sides made for a scrappy game but a goal from Jack Andrews gave Rovers the lead but on the stroke of half time Lichfield leveled things. A draw looked certain until the final seconds. Final Score: Lichfield City 2 - 1 Gresley Rovers
