Anderson boost for Chatteris

Forward Stu Anderson has left March Town United for near-neighbours Chatteris Town as the Lilies continue to recruit players for their bid to avoid relegation from the Cambs League Premier.

Chatteris boss Steve Bright said: “Leigh Matthews (assistant boss) has been dealing with it. I think Stu now lives in Chatteris and he was with some of the lads when they went down the boxing gym to help with their fitness.

“He went with them and enjoyed it. Stu is a good forward player and will be great for us as Richie Allen is suspended for three weeks.”

Also arriving are two former players: forward/winger Ben Green (from Ely City) and influential holding midfielder Laurie Carter, who played for the Lilies last year.

Bright continued: “Ben used to play for me as a lad in the Colts. He has always been pretty quick and we need someone to get in the box and create chances.

“Laurie is not afraid to put his foot in, and that’s what we want. Some players are those who when they leave others leave too – Laurie’s that player who they follow.

“We’ve got lots of options now, so hopefully it’ll keep the lads on their toes. At this level you’ve got to have a strong squad.”

Hares manager Paul Crosbie said: “Stu has gone with our best wishes. The situation was he couldn’t buy a goal and couldn’t enjoy his football.

“He asked if we wouldn’t mind if he has gone elsewhere. I’ve not got a problem with that. Competition for places up front is hard as we have Robbie Masters, Danny Emmington and Toby Ogbonna.”

All Cambs and Peterborough League weekend games for local sides were postponed due to snow.
