To join Canterbury United is a dream come true. I am not going to lie, but I was a little unsure at first, but I spoke to [James Robinson] who convinced me this was right. And now I’ve joined, I am really happy to be here. The ambitions the club has is amazing and I want to stay for a little while.
Matthew is a really good player, and I am delighted to sign him up for this club. He has the potential to be one of the best of his generation, and I believe he can achieve that here. He is going to be one of the best players in the club’s history.
He made eight appearances for Northern Premier League Premier Division side Ilkeston, who find themselves second in their league, and scored once before moving down south.
Along with Harrison, the club also confirmed the capture of Dom Lucketti from Stockport.
I am very happy to sign here. This club is new, but it doesn’t need history and ambition to convince people to join, it has its ambitions and where it wants to be in the future, and I wanted to be a big part of that. I hope to stay for many years and lift many trophies with the club!
Dom is another very very talented player, he will be vital to any success this club may have in the future. He can play in a variety of positions, which is great, and very important as it allows us to have a little bit of tactical versatility here. He is another with a lot of potential and he can achieve it here.
I am happy to see Liam again yes. We’ve played in the same team for many years and that was one of the reasons I wanted to come here. He told me what an amazing place it was, and I got excited and wanted to come. I hope to stay for many years and have lots of success.
Lee is an extremely clever player and will be a big star for us over the years, and I can’t wait to see him play. We’ve been tracking him for a little while, as we have all three, and we’ve managed to persuade them to join us, which is brilliant. These guys, along with Liam [Drury] and Ronnie [Dalton] are the future of the club, no doubt.
Meanwhile, the Bishops have also confirmed that three youth players, wingers Nick Todd, Jack Slade and Samuel Dunk have left the club on free transfers, joining Woodingdean Wanderers, Bolney Rangers and Great Yarmouth respectively, and first team striker Kris Boateng has also left the club, linking up Pulborough. It is also widely expected that first team right-back Shaun Morris is to join Sandhurst Town in the coming days. The club said it would like to wish all five players the best for the future and thanked them for the time at the club.
