Nuneaton Town have completed the signing of powerful central defender, Jim Mutton, from Redditch United.

Standing at 6’4”, he started his career as a trainee at Birmingham City, where he came through the ranks but failed to make the breakthrough into the first-team.

He then moved on to Coleshill Town, during which time he had a trial at Colchester United in November 2012, before moving on to Stratford Town and helping them win the Midland Alliance title.

Moving on to Redditch United where he developed a reputation as a no-nonsense defender, he helped the club finish runners-up in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier League Premier Division last term before having a brief spell at Hednesford Town at the start of the current campaign.

Returning to Redditch, he has been in solid form this term and has attracted plenty of higher level interest.

“He is a player that I hold a lot of respect for having played and managed against him,” said Boro boss, Tommy Wright. “He is a good, solid defender who will add more steel to our back-line and I am looking forward to working with him.

“He’s played at the level below for the last two seasons, but he’ll make the step up to The National League North with ease.”

Meanwhile departing The Coombe Abbey Arena today is James Clifton, who has left the club by mutual consent.
