 Drury makes second important new signing for Stamford

Stamford manager Graham Drury has unveiled his second new capture with full back Ben George signing from Leamington FC.

The 23-year-old, who has made one appearance for Walsall, played 73 times across two campaigns for Leamington, who won promotion to the National North League this year. 

 

On the move George said:  “I had a few options, I could have gone higher. The main reason I chose Stamford is that I wanted to play for a manager who believes in me and I want to play regularly. The facilities here are second to none to anyone else at this level or even the level above.

 

“Graham has confidence in me. Without a doubt I want to get the club promoted. In my two years with Leamington we got to the playoff final first season and then promoted the following. I know what you have to do to win games.

 

"Sometimes it isn’t pretty football but we know what we do to have to win. This club needs to be in the league above and then the league above that.

 

Drury added: “Ben is a winner and is used to winning games of football. That is crucial for us to bring those lads in with a winning mentality. I identified that in Ben. He gets forward well from full back areas. He can also play in midfield and he puts good quality balls into the box.

 

“There will be a fair few fresh faces in pre-season. Hopefully over the next few weeks there will be some good name signings coming in alongside these two fantastic names. Good players. All I am interested in is players with that winning mentality.

 

"That is really important and having that know how. Hopefully, with the lads I am keeping from last season, who at the back end proved they can compete with the top sides, we should have a very good mix.”

 

George is Drury’s second signing after the arrival of Jak Jeys last week.
