On the signing of Willock manager Ian Allinson went on to say “I’ve admired Calum for a while now and when the chance came to sign a striker like him I was very happy to do it. I didn’t want to rush into anything initially, as I wanted to see how he would fit in with our dressing room. In truth he’s fitted in fantastically well and as I like to have experience in certain positions, he’s somebody who at 31 has experience and will suit our system, so the signing is great news”..  Allinson concluded by saying “I’m still looking to sign one or two but they have to be the right type of player and character, and I know we’ll be more than ready by the time we travel to Tonbridge Angels on the 17th August”..

We all wish Calum well for his stay at Meadow Park.
