Sholing have completed the signings of Micky Hubbard and Luke Dempsey.
Both players were signed this week and are available for Saturday’s home game with Bemerton Heath.
Their squad has been down on numbers for a while due to the long term injuries to Jack Smith & Pete Castle, so these new additions bring in both quality and experience to help the club for the second half of the season.
Dave Diaper said “I am pleased to announce two new additions to the squad, Luke Dempsey and Mick Hubbard have put pen to paper and both will be available for selection for our match this Saturday with Bemerton. Both players will strengthen our squad with Luke being a “proper defender” with a presence and Mick bringing the quality and technical prowess to create the chances for our front three. Welcome to Sholing, guys.”
Hubbard is a 30 year old Central Midfielder who is well known around Southern League & Wessex League football. Micky started at Hamworthy Town but will be best remembered for being part of the Poole Town team that won the Wessex title three seasons in succession, where he played alongside Charlie Austin.
Micky has also had spells at Blackfield & Winchester and most recently, Bemerton, who he will face on Saturday.
Dempsey is a 24 year old Central Defender who started his career here at Sholing (when VTFC) in our successful Reserve team in 2008/09. Luke then moved on to Romsey, Hayling Island, Alresford & Winchester before spending the last two seasons at Andover.
