Gloucester City have confirmed that two of their key forward players have signed contracts with the club ahead of the 2017/18 season.
Signing for the club on non-contract terms in 2016/17, Zack Kotwica made an impressive impact in pre-season, which he carried over into the National League North campaign.
Kotwica’s good form in the early season was rewarded by manager Tim Harris when he signed a contract for the remainder of the campaign, and he has now done so again ahead of 2017/18.
The 21-year-old forward, who can play on the wing or in a more central role, found himself as a regular in Harris’ team, going on to make forty-four appearances, adding to the six he made on loan for the Tigers in 2013/14.
Kotwica’s flair coupled with his eye for goal made him a fans’ favourite and he found the net 13 times in 2016/17, including an impressive hat-trick in a 4-0 drubbing of Alfreton Town.
The pacey front man, whose father Jason played for the Tigers in the early 1990s, scored the Tigers final goal of the season when he was on hand to rifle home the equaliser at Stockport County.
After top-scoring in the Southern League Division One South and West for Cinderford Town in 2015/16, the arrival of Ethan Moore in 2016 was met with great optimism and excitement.
However, two days before the season started, Moore suffered an Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury that ruled him out for the entire campaign.
Back and fighting fit once again, Moore, 24, has signed a contract that will keep him at the club for the 2017/18 season.
Speaking on the decision, Harris said: “Ethan is an excellent striker and one of the finest at National League North level.
“Whilst it is a shame that we didn’t see him at all last season, we all know what Ethan is about and he is fitter and hungrier than ever before which can only bode well for Gloucester City”.
