Two in and one out at the Meadow

4 years ago, By David Laughlin

Tommy Taylor has made two more signings ahead of tomorrow's away match at top of the table, Sutton Coldfield Town but another player has departed.

Matlock Town midfield player, Steve Warne (pictured) has signed on a month's loan from our Derbyshire neighbours. A forceful midfield player Steve is a former Chesterfield midfielder who joined Matlock from Alfreton Town for a second spell with the Gladiators in the summer of 2008. He had originally joined Matlock on loan from Hucknall Town towards the end of the 2003/04 season before making the move permanent in 2004/05.


He is hugely popular with the Matlock fans where has he turned in some highly impressive displays and was the club captain for a period. He was voted as the Players’ Player of the Season in 2008/09.

Meanwhile 29-year-old Jay Lee Hodgson, a current Montserrat international player, has joined the Nailers following his release from Conference North Club, Hinckley United for whom he had signed at the start of the current season, following a successful trial with the Knitters.

Jay Lee started his football career at Heanor Town before moving the short distance to Long Eaton United. He subsequently joined Evo-Stik League, Loughborough Dynamo where he made 15 appearances and scored 7 goals in the 2010–11 season. He was called up to the Montserrat national team this year, scoring both goals in a 5-2 defeat to Belize in a 2014 World Cup qualifying round and scored again in the away tie which also ended in a 3-1 defeat.

Departing from Christchurch Meadow, is central defender, Tommy Hannigan, who has opted to make a return move to Rainworth Miners Welfare, from whom he joined the Nailers at the start of the season.
