Defenders Regan Upton and Sam Coulson head the list of the latest new arrivals at The GST Gas Services Stadium at The Lamb, as Andy Morrell’s Tamworth squad go through final preparations ahead of Saturdays home Vanerama National League North season opener with Bradford Park Avenue.
Upton has recently been released by Wolverhampton Wanderers, who purchased the now 20 year old from Midlands neighbors Burton Albion at the age of 16. He impressed during our final pre season fixture against Aston Villa, and agreed terms over the weekend. He is in contention to make his competitive Lambs debut this Saturday, and will compete with the like of Luke Jones, Jack Lane, and Louis Ezewele for a place.
Coulson is another defensive player with a strong pedigree. Having spent his formative years at Manchester City, he moved to Stoke City to complete his apprenticeship, representing England at youth level during this time. Unfortunately, injury then struck, and he was advised to retire from full time football on medical grounds. He is now looking to play on a part time basis at the best level possible.
In addition to the above, exciting young winger Dexter Walters has also registered for us. Walters is a product of Romulus Academy, and also represented the club at first team level last season. He played an important role in The Roms impressive FA Youth Cup run last season, which saw them knock out Notts County amongst others. Walters has featured in several first team pre season games, and is certainly one for the future at just 18 years old.
