It is with pride but sadness that Ollie Snaith has left the club to join Needham Market. A player who joined the club when his family returned to Newmarket as an U16 player and has progressed through our U18’s to become a key player in our first team at only 19 years of age. He was last years Players Player of the season and most consistent and this season has been standing out in recent weeks again for us and saw interest not only from Needham Market but other local clubs too. A box to box midfielder who has grown with the team over the past few seasons since making his debut as a 16 year old and has gone on to make 122 first team appearances scoring 12 goals. Although a huge loss to the team we wish Ollie all the best in the future and no doubt he will make an impact at that level for Needham Market.
Whilst Ollie has moved on we have signed two players, Luke Seaber-Shinn has joined us from Histon, the former Histon Godmanchester Rovers player who can play down the left side is a welcome addition to the squad and made his debut in last night’s Suffolk Cup win. Our other signing is James Seymour, a player we have had our eye on for a couple of seasons now and the former Ely City captain will give us some added experience to the squad, a key player for Ely over the last few years he is combative and able to play in midfield or defence and an excellent addition to the squad
