The Belper Town signings continue with the arrival of goalkeeper Max Beardmore and forward Joel Ambalu.
As a permanent replacement for Danny Roberts who joined rivals Leek Town midway through the 2017/18 season, Max Beardmore will protect the Nailers goal between the sticks for the upcoming season. Beardmore joins up with the first team squad shortly after having a successful season with the Tamworth U21 squad who won the quadruple.
Prior to his recent triumphs, he began his development at Birmingham City FC’s Academy.
Speaking to Belper Town FC, the Nailers manager Grant Black said, “Max has served his time at Tamworth and is now ready to cement a number one spot in the Evostik league to kick his career onto the next level.”
Beardmore seemed equally excited to put pen to paper when he said: “I’m really looking forward to the new challenge and can’t wait to get started. I’m really grateful for the opportunity the club and the manager have given me.”
Sitting alongside Beardmore was forward Joel Ambalu. 23-year-old Ambalu began his footballing career under the guidance of the current West Bromwich Albion manager Darren Moore as an academy player at the Baggies before enjoying spells at Torquay United and most recently North Ferriby United.
Grant Black sung Ambalu’s praises when he said: “Joel is a great talent. With power, pace and technical ability we really see him doing things in the league with all of his attributes.
“He played in the Conference North last season and is hungry to progress which is great for us to have that kind of appetite.”
