Gallagher completes double swoop

3 months ago By Sean Galea-Pace

Lowestoft Town have completed the signings of experienced defender Dean Leacock and young striker Declan Daniels.

Leacock, who has a wealth of experience which includes captaining Derby County in their Premier League season of 2007/2008, has joined Lowestoft as his family have recently moved to the area and he was keen to get back into football. Leacock who is now 33, started his career at Fulham in 2001 and has also played for Coventry, Derby and Notts County.

Ady said: "With Dean, he gives us real experience. In the game against Southend you can see, even though he's not up to his full level of fitness, the experience and quality he brings to the backline. He's a good talker on the pitch and a leader. He could prove to be a really big signing for us this summer. I'm absolutely thrilled to have secured his signature, it's another good addition to what is looking like a much stronger squad."

Daniels, is a 18 year-old striker who has joined on loan from Ipswich. He joined The Tractor Boys in 2016 after spending time at the Fowler Education and Football Academy run by Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler.

"We're delighted to take Declan on loan, I feel that he gives us another option up-front and he's scored lots of goals for the U23's at Ipswich. This will be a great learning curve for him, as with boys like Nico Cotton, this level toughens you up and makes you stronger. I think it's going to be a great experience for him and it's another solid, young addition for us. We appreciate Ipswich thinking of us when they were trying to get the lad out on loan and we have always had a good relationship with Ipswich in the past and I'm sure Declan will have a great time. He's trained with us and looks in good shape so we're pleased about that. I did speak to Travis and he spoke really highly of him so he's a good character and at a good age to come here and we're hopeful that everyone will benefit from this move."
