The first of the new recruits signed by Gainsborough Trinity manager Dave Frecklington is Ellis Storey, who finished last season with Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division side Grantham Town.
Storey is a player that Frecklington has been chasing since he first arrived at the club.
An athletic, left-back, Storey came through the academy at Ilkeston FC prior to joining Coalville Town, from where he signed for fellow NPL Premier Division outfit Grantham.
Following a string of impressive performances at the Gingerbreads last season, Frecklington was alerted to the young full-back’s potential. And his accomplished performances are sure to make him a popular player amongst the Trinity faithful.
A delighted Storey said: “I am really looking forward to getting the new season underway. Having already been approached by the club in February, but wanting to see out the season at Grantham because of the play-off position we were in, I am glad the manager has come in again for me. I feel like now is the perfect opportunity for me to progress my career and play at a higher level and in front of bigger crowds.
“The gaffer’s plans to progress the club is something that I will now be a part of and can’t wait for the new challenge at Gainsborough Trinity”.
