The best way to keep up to date with Lowestoft Town FC


Two trialists confirmed as Lowestoft players

1 year ago By Sean Galea-Pace

Josh Greenleaf and Ollie Humphrey yesterday officially signed as Lowestoft Town players and have both agreed two-year deals.

Having completed the signings of both players, manager Ady Gallagher told me about his new recruits following their successful trials.

Having signed Josh Greenleaf and Ollie Humphrey, what do you feel they will bring to the team?
"My aim at the start of the season was to add firstly, quality players, but also to add young, honest players who were hungry to progress. Ollie has the experience of Peterborough and Mansfield behind him, and after a severe injury, he played some games at Dereham and Wroxham last year to recover his fitness as well. He's still not quite fully fit but technically he is a very good footballer and I think he can really develop this year. He's hungry to prove himself and wants to get back into league football which is the type of players we really want. Good attitude and someone who works really hard in training. Josh has moved into the area and is another player who has great credentials and has already been at some very good clubs, possibly too many clubs at this moment in time, which was a concern for me early on. But, I've had a good chat with him and he's another lad that wants to progress and push himself. I think he's in the right environment to do that now. I was really pleased with both lads on Tuesday night and as a result of that, we have offered them deals to be contracted at the club and we are obviously delighted to add them to the squad."

Was Josh's performance against Waveney, in which he scored two goals and was unlucky not to have a third, a key reason to signing him?
"It wasn't just the goals he scored. Obviously, when you're a forward and you score goals it's great but I felt that his overall contribution to the game was excellent. He's technically a very good player, his movement was very good and he instantly struck up an understanding with Reedy (Jake Reed) which was really good. More importantly, the quality of his movement and hold-up play was good and he has electric pace which is something all managers like to see, he has height and he has youth on his side as well. He's still a young player and he will develop through this season and hopefully we will benefit long-term from having him around."

You can see how these two new signings get on as full-time Lowestoft players tomorrow at The Amber Dew Events Stadium as Norwich City are the visitors for Micky Chapman's testimonial in a 3pm kick-off. Those who haven't purchased tickets yet and want to attend, arrive at 12 (mid-day) in order to secure tickets.
