Carruthers completes Fin-tastic signing!

Matlock Town boss Martin Carruthers has added to his midfield options by bringing in 20-year-old Finlay Armond from United Counties League Premier Division North Sleaford Town.

Armond, who lives in Sleaford, comes to Matlock highly recommended by Connor Dimaio who was with him at Boston United previously. He has scored two goals in ten appearances this season.

“I’m delighted to sign young Finn” said Carruthers.

“He’s a very good young player who’s appeared for Boston in the league above before going to the USA on a scholarship. Finn returned early and signed for his local side to keep himself fit. Connor Dimaio recommended him, he’s looked razor sharp in training and will be a good asset to the squad. He’s young, fit and hungry and he’ll give competition for places in that midfield area.”

Armond is expected to be included in the Gladiators’ squad to take on Workington at the Proctor Cars Stadium on Saturday subject to NPL and FA approval. He may not be the only fresh face prior to the Workington clash with Carruthers hoping to add at least one more player to the Gladiators’ ranks.
