Spennymoor Town Manager Jason Ainsley moved quickly today to strengthen the midfield with the addition of Craig Gott from Marske United for an undisclosed fee on an 18-month contract.
Ainsley told the Spennymoor website “I am well aware of the qualities Craig offers, I managed him as an 18-year-old and his range of passing and vision was superb and he has gone on to be a top player.
I have followed his career since then and I believe we are getting one of the best semi-professional midfielders in the north east and as a club we have shown our intent in this signing.
I have tried numerous times to get Craig but to no avail, however once Marske went out of the FA Vase I spoke to Carl Jarrett about our willingness to make the deal happen.
I would like to thank Carl and hopefully this signing will give us a big lift”
General Manager Steve Lawson added ‘The club would like to thank Marske United for sorting the deal out very professionally and quickly on Sunday, through discussions with the clubs Chief Executive Brad Groves and the committee of Marske. This has enabled the deal to go through today making him available for first team selection.
Craig added ‘I am over the moon to be re-joining Spennymoor Town.
I feel from the last time I was here I was a little bit too young and inexperienced but now I’m 26 and having played northern league for the past 7 years I feel it is the right time to make the step up to a league higher and do my best to help Spennymoor achieve their goal of promotion.
I can’t wait to get started and I am really looking forward to the challenge”
In other news one other player is leaving the club.
Michael Hoganson has tonight had his contract terminated through mutual consent and we wish Michael all the very best for the future.
