Midfielder George Bennett, 23, has joined Gosport Borough from Basingstoke Town.
Boro player/manager Craig McAllister is delighted he has at last made a midfield signing after several weeks of searching.
“He’s a good size at 6ft 2ins. and left-footed and brings balance to the team. Everyone talks about wanting left-footed players but there aren’t that many around. He can do a holding role and an attacking role.
“He offers different attributes (to what we have) and yes he’s young, but he has played over 100 games at this level so he knows the level. Coming here is a challenge for him because we want the club to progress and we see him being part of that and helping us get to where we want to be.”
