Understandably, lots of clubs from Steps 3 & 4 were in pursuit of his services but after numerous meetings between myself and Paul he has decided Gresley FC is the place for him. Sully is a player that excites me and he is a player that can produce pure magic, in my opinion I believe we have the best striker in the league and I am looking forward to working with Paul once again.

Sully is another piece of the jigsaw we are putting together and he will also play a major part in the development of the younger players in the team. I am sure everyone at Gresley FC will welcome him and with the performances I know he can produce will soon be a fans favourite”

Everyone at Gresley FC would like to welcome Paul.
