Spennymoor Town Manager Jason Ainsley has released details this evening of a new signing.
“Tonight I am delighted to capture the signing of 23 year old Robert Briggs from West Auckland on an 18 month contract.
Briggsy is a player I have admired for a long time and one I have always kept my eye on when he was at Gateshead, Shildon and West Auckland.
When I found out West were willing to let him go I had no hesitation in pursuing his signature as I think he will give us something different to what we already have and with him being able to play in various different positions across the midfield it gives us that ability to change system at ease.
Briggsy also has the ability to get goals from midfield as has been proven throughout his playing career so far, he has a very good range of passing and is the type of player which very much suits our style of play.”
Robert went on to add
“Im delighted to have signed for Spennymoor Town Football Club. I have nearly signed for Spennymoor numerous times but at the times it wasn’t right for me personally or the club, Spennymoor has an extremely high reputation in non-league football and I’m looking forward to being part of that.
The club has big expectation levels and wants to continue to grow.
On a personal note my aim is to get fit and enjoying playing football, I’m more experienced and playing my best football this season which I hope to continue, Everybody who I spoke to has nothing but good words to say about everything and everybody at the club which made this decision a no brainer.”
We would like to welcome Robert to the Brewery Field.
