Dominic Roma has made his sixth signing since taking over as permanent manager of Gainsborough Trinity

Roma has captured the signature of Jordan Thewlis to further bolster his attacking options.

A regular member of the Harrogate Town side that reached the end of season play-offs gainsborughonly to be beaten over two legs by AFC Fylde, the winger, who is equally comfortable playing in a front three, grabbed 7 goals in twenty starts.

Also creating chances for his fellow forwards, assisting no less than five times, Thewlis possesses a great threat in the final third.

The former Scunthorpe United youth-teamer, at only 23 years of age clearly has a point to prove, having failed to break into the Scunthorpe first-team, and what better way to prove himself than getting amongst the action back at Trinity.

Other experience for the versatile forward has been gleaned from spells at Goole AFC, Scarborough Athletic, Brigg Town, Stocksbridge Park Steels, Matlock Town and Buxton.

Assistant-manager Martin Foster commented: “I have watched Jordan in a certain games over the last few years and have always liked what I saw. From two or three years ago, he has matured a lot as a footballer – and since seeing him at Harrogate, I have been very impressed. He has the qualities that Dom and I are looking for as we build a competitive side for the National League North.”

Roma added: “Again, I am excited at the prospect of working with Jordan. He is at a good age and is keen to listen and learn and I believe Gainsborough Trinity and Jordan will be mutually beneficial for each other.”
