Why Billingham? I joined billingham after decided to come across from Stockton, I made the choice because I want to play at the highest level I can and I appreciate the challenge but the excitement and drive is there to play 1st team here. Billingham is a great place for this and it has also allowed me The opportunity to play with my cousin Lewis and other good mates who are back around the club. Here’s to a successful year!
I caught up with Head Coach Peter Evans 'Jobe approached the club recently and expressed his desire to play at the highest level he can. No need to chase him he wanted it too happen.
It’s exactly the sort of player we want. He is young, hungry and wants to progress.
He knows it’s a real competitive environment but he also knows it’s a club that offers opportunities and a style he can slot into.
He’s exciting going forward and offers multiple poisons. There’s some work to do to catch up with the rest of the boys in regards to game structure but I am sure he be quick to step up.
I am know it was a tough choice to leave his club but also you have to applaud the boldness to make the jump. Along with a host of other young players that have joined us this year it’s becoming an extremely exciting senior section, adding to the talent we already have and coming through our brilliant youth section.'
