ILKESTON TOWN v HISTON
Pitching In Northern Premier League Midlands Division
Saturday 2nd October 2021
Kick off @ 3.00pm
We are delighted to confirm the signing of Rhys Thorpe ahead of the weekend’s trip to Ilkeston in the Northern Premier League Midlands Division.
The 23 year old striker joins us from Eaton Socon where he has been regularly featuring on the list of goal scorers in their Kershaw League Premier Division campaign with 11 to his name from 8 appearances so far. Gaffer Lance Key is pleased to have added the striker to the squad saying “Rhys brings a bit more seniority to the club and bolsters our front line. He’s right up there in this years goalscoring charts in the Kershaw League and comes to us with a real hunger to play higher. We think he can fulfil his potential with us, he’s a player who is quick and direct and I am sure he will become a fans favourite very quickly.”
Thorpe is in the squad for tomorrow’s game alongside fellow recent arrival Ollie Brookes who made his debut last weekend against Soham. Lance hopes to have skipper Ed Rolph available again after he turned an ankle at Shepshed a couple of weeks ago although Andy Ballester and Bernat Burguera remain out. Lee Smith is back in full training now and is not far from a return although tomorrow will be too early for him but Pat Bexfield is available after returning to the club last week and is in line to make his second debut in a Histon shirt.
