Redditch United First-Team boss, Paul Davis, has continued the shaping of his squad ahead of the 2018/2019 Evo-Stik South – Premier campaign following the additions of Tom Fishwick and Leam Howards.
The Reds have won the race to sign the highly sought-after Fishwick, who was subject of interest from many clubs. The Reds’ faithful will recall the central defender’s spell at The TRICO Stadium at the end of last season, producing some mature and accomplished displays, according to Davis.
He added: “During his spell with Redditch, he showed the capabilities needed to be a top centre-half. Tom has gained some excellent experience playing at this level and, despite his young years, that experience has allowed him to develop into an established player.”
Meanwhile, former Banbury United striker, Howards, is proven at southern league level having scored 57 goals in 150 matches.
Davis said: “At 23, Leam has his best years ahead of him. I am delighted to have him on-board; he brings work-rate and goals on the pitch, while off the pitch he will be one of the characters of the dressing room. I expect good things from Leam, and I am sure he will turn out to be a fantastic signing.”
Both took part in last Thursday’s pre-season training – the first of the season – and are available for the opening pre-season friendly against League Two side, Port Vale. The Valiants make the visit to The TRICO Stadium on Friday (7.45pm KO).
