Whaley signs Histon trio

MARCH Town manager Brett Whaley made a triple swoop for three Histon players on Thursday evening and they are likely to play some part in tomorrow’s (Saturday) Ridgeons Division One game at Debenham.

Whaley has been busy trying to improve his squad all week after Ondre Odain and Ricky Goodale left to return to the Peterborough League and with Craig Norman out injured for six weeks.

He had hoped he could lure former Wisbech striker Liam Harrold to the club on loan, but King’s Lynn boss Gary Setchell has recalled him to the first team squad this weekend.

But Whaley is still very happy with the three lads he has taken on loan especially Casey Logan, a 17-year-oldwide player, who has made one first team appearance in the Blue Square Bet Premier League this season and actually comes from March.

His other signings are Curtis Fulcher, a central midfielder, and striker Mattie Waters, who are also both 17.

Whaley added: “For a club like ours to have a good relationship with a club like Histon, who do not have a reserve side, is ideal. Brian Page, the assistant manager who is also head of the academy has been very helpful and it may be a way forward for us.

“If things work out we can have the players until the end of the season unless they need to be recalled. They will be training with us each week which will be a big help too.

“Two if not all three Histon lads will play some part in tomorrow’s game and they fill the positions for the players we have lost in the last week.”
