Blyth Spartans have signed central defender Joe Gorman from Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division side Biggleswade United.
Gorman had been with Biggleswade following his release from Airdrieonians last season, having helped the Scottish side reach the Scottish League One playoffs. He has put pen to paper on a deal until the end of the season as manager Alun Armstrong looks to provide competition at the back for Nathan Buddle and Ryan Hutchinson.
Armstrong was delighted to be bringing Gorman in: “I spoke with Joe’s agent and saw him play a few times. Other teams in our league were interested in him so it’s testament to the club that he’s came here.
He added: “He’s left-sided so adds a nice balance to the side. He’s athletic and good on the ball, which is the main thing as that’s how we like to play.”
The 23-year-old former Republic of Ireland youth international had this to say: “I’m absolutely delighted to have signed for Blyth Spartans. I can’t wait to get started.”
