Hinckley AFC Manager Carl Abbott has added striker Jake Woolley to his squad, and provided an update on his injury striken forward line.
A Leicester-based centre forward, Woolley won the golden boot in the Evo Stik League Division One South two seasons ago when he netted 25 times for Coalville Town, and joins Hinckley from Rugby Town.
He was an unused substitute for Luton Town when Hinckley United played them in the FA Trophy five years ago, and also counts Rushden and Diamonds and Cambridge United amongst his former clubs.
That addition will add depth to the club’s strike force which has been hit by injury in recent weeks. Abbo provided an update on both Luke Richards and Paul Sullivan. He said: “Luke sustained a calf strain and a twisted and bruised knee as a result of that awful challenge on Saturday. He could potentially be sidelined for a number of weeks.
“Paul Sullivan’s knee has only improved a little, and we await further diagnosis on that. We’re hoping it’s only a severe twist and not anything more serious, but again we will be without him in the short-term.”
But alongside the addition of Woolley, Sam Agar will also return to the squad on Saturday having not played since October through an ankle problem. Abbo says Sam’s return will “ease our attacking options” heading into another top of the table clash at Atherstone Town this weekend.
