Heanor Town have added 27 year old goalkeeper Ian Deakin from Mansfield Town. Deakin brings vast experience will clubs such as Nottingham Forest, Colorado Rapids, Eastwood, Hinckley, Buxton and Mansfield on his football cv.
Clarence said ''to be honest I didn't think we would have a chance with this one with the clubs that had contacted him, but Deaks came for a chat and he is a very nice lad that wants to get his gloves on and enjoy the game, he is obviously a massive signing for the club but more importantly for me after meeting him for ten minutes I knew he would fit in the dressing room and is hungry for this to be a successful season''
Deakin added ''im happy to be joining Heanor Town Fotball Club. Its a big club with big ambition and a club moving forward in the right direction and doing it the right way. It was a tough season for me last year due to injury and lack of playing time, so I sat down with Glen and the coaching staff and they told me what they are trying to do here and I wanted to be a part of it. I love playing football and in the end it was an easy decision. I'm looking forward to getting started and hopefully helping bring success to the football club.''
