STRIKER Scott Ginty will not be joining Wisbech Town after all after taking up an offer from Bishop’s Stortford.
Fenmen boss Steve Appleby swooped for 21-year-old Ginty, a former Peterborough youth player, last month after the player had had spells with Ebbsfleet and Deeping Rangers and felt the striker could prove a gem for the Fenmen.
But unfortunately Ginty had received an offer from Blue Square North side Bishop’s Stortford and Appleby said: “He had a chance to play at a higher level and you cannot stand in the way of a lad improving himself. The same thing has happened with a player at King’s Lynn.
“It is disappointing because he looked a good signing for us, but I have told him the door will always be open to him if things do not work at the club and wish him the best for the future.”
But as one player departed another looks like arriving with March striker Stuart Anderson keen to try his luck with Wisbech in preseason training and Appleby said: “He impressed me when I saw him last season for March against us and he is coming to preseason training with us and we will see how things work out.”
Anderson, who was also attracting interest from Huntingdon, was March’s top scorer with 16 goals last season and was perhaps their most improved player.
Denny Escorcio, who played seven games for Wisbech towards the end of last season and scored twice following a move from Soham Town, has joined his former March Town manager Jamie Weston at UCL side Peterborough Northern Star.
Appleby did ask the young striker to stay at Wisbech for next season but the 21-year-old would not commit straight away and Appleby said: “I have heard nothing from Denny since the end of the season but I understand he is joining the Peterborough team.”
Ironically it was Weston who disposed of Escorcio’s services at March towards the end of the 2010-11 season after the player failed to turn up for a couple games.
Ollie Pinner will not be back at the Fenland Stadium next season as he is likely to be signing for Boston United Reserves.
Appleby remains on the look out for another midfield player but left last week for holiday and commented: “I tried to get everything sorted out before I went on holiday and I am happy with the stage we are at present especially after last summer which was a real nightmare.”
