2 Players Return while 1 new faces signs for The Marketmen

We can confirm today the signing of former Bury Town, Biggleswade Town and most recently St. Neots Town Midfielder Russell Short.

You may recall Russell scored the only winning goal of the game when St. Neots Town visted Bloomfields a few weeks ago.

However upon his departure from the club this week Manager Wilks didn't think twice to sign the versatile player who he managed when at Bury Town.

Wilks said of the signing "Shorty is a quality player and one who i enjoyed working with during our time at Bury Town. When i knew about him leaving St. Neots Town he was someone who i didn't think twice about signing".

Wilks went on to say "Shorty will provide excellent quality in to our squad and can play anywhere in midfield or defence without any fuss".

The club would like to put on record our thanks to Gary Wilson St. Neots Town Secretary for completing the relevent paperwork and also to our own Secretary Mark for ensuring all paperwork has been registered with the league in time for Russell to be in the squad for this weekends fixture at home to Halesowen Town.


We can also confirm that former Academy Scholar Conor McLaughlin who returned to the club in late 2018 has signed his first contract after some impressive performances in the Reserves and when called upon for the First Team.


Finally we can also confirm that Regan 'Reggie' Pelling has returned to the club after a few seasons away having played at Leiston and Whitton United in this time.


Welcome to you all and we wish you all the best whilst with Needham.
