Matlock Town are delighted to announce the signings of Ben Algar, Josh Batty, Nathan Forbes-Swindells and a return for Micky Harcourt.
Micky has decided to return to the club despite several offers from other clubs that were more money than he was offered by Mark Hume who always wanted the right back to be part of his plans but suggested he tried things out with other clubs first. This is fantastic commitment to the club from Micky and no doubt the Gladiator Nation will be excited by his decision to stay blue.
Ben Algar (25) has re-joined the club from Sheffield FC, a tricky winger who has had two previous spells with the club, he can thread the ball through a hole in the back four and is capable of causing nightmares for full backs.
Josh Batty (19) joins us from Winterton Rangers, a hard working young midfielder looking to make his mark in the game and has had spells with Gainsborough Trinty.
Nathan Forbes-Swindells (25) – A forward who likes the ball played to his feet and isn’t scared to run at a centre back should the opportunity present itself, Nathan’s former clubs include Alfreton Town, Staveley MW and a trial with Chesterfield FC. Nathan will miss some games due to work but is keen to play his part in the Gladiators 2015/2016 season.
