Matlock Town can now announce that twenty-three-year-old striker Tyrell Waite has joined on a months loan from Boston United.
Waite came through the Ilkeston youth academy, scored the club’s first ever competitive goal, and signed a two-year professional contract with the Northern Premier League Division One South club in March 2012. Later in the month, he was signed by League One club Notts County, after impressing manager Keith Curle during a two-week trial. He made his debut for the club on 21 August 2012, replacing Lee Hughes 88 minutes into a 2–0 win over Hartlepool United at Meadow Lane. Goals from Francois Zoko and Neal Bishop maintained Notts County’s 100% start to the League One season with a victory over Hartlepool. Waite scored his first goal for the club on the last day on the 2012–13 season, heading in the opening goal against Coventry.
While at Notts County, Waite had loan spells with Nuneaton Town (twice), Ilkeston FC (twice) and Lincoln City. After leaving Notts County, he would link up with Swedish second division side Skellefteå FF on a two-year deal scoring nine goals in 15 games before returning to the UK to play for Kidderminster Harriers last season where he scored 7 goals in 38 games.
Waite joined Boston United in the summer but has yet to receive his chance to make his mark for the Pilgrims and we are delighted that he has joined us on a month’s loan.
