Cross comes in

4 days ago By Jamie Manktelow

Aveley Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of defender Sam Cross.

We are delighted to announce the signing of defender Sam Cross for the coming 2018/19 season.

Sam, 23, Basildon based player who is equally at home playing at either centre back or at left back has joined us after recent spells at Bowers & Pitsea and Grays Athletic.

Last season Crossy made 34 appearances for our tenants and scored two goals, including a fantastic free-kick away at the Bostik North Champions AFC Hornchurch in a 2-2 draw.

He's another ex Brentwood Town youth player, cheers Brentwood, and made his debut for them when he was younger.

Sam has also played for Heybridge Swifts and mentioned above Bowers & Pitsea and tenants Grays Athletic.

Crossy has good leadership qualities and is renowned for his prowess on set-piece deliveries.

James Webster on getting his Cross into the club."I tried to sign Crossy last pre-season when I was at Brightlingsea, but Sam was unable to juggle the journey up from Basildon with his job in the City, so he opted to join our tenants instead.

"I am really pleased to gain his signature as I believe he will enhance what we have got with his superb communication and organisational skills."
