Chigwell bolstered by six of the best

Chigwell Athletic manager Richard Slater has made his intentions for the new season clear by six new signings.

Star striker Steve Summers tops the bill, returning to the club following four seasons at Redbridge Jewish Care.

He is joined by the versatile Craig Sandford who is back for his second spell at Peter May following four successful years away, where he helped RJC win the double and Glenthorne United B to the Division Three title. He was also top-scorer for the now defunct Glenthorne A last season.

Other new faces include journeymen Hadley Silver and Ranaan Firmin from Glenthorne, along with former Thorne Ryan Cole and North West Neasden's Elliot Bloom.

Slater told JC Sport: "I'm delighted with all our new signings. They'll add proven quality and goals to the squad.

"A big welcome back to Summers and Sandford who both served the club superbly well between 2001-2009. There's a great vibe amongst the squad at the minute, so it's vital we get off to a good start come September."

Richard Baum (retired), Anthony Mendel (relocated) and Alex Norman (futsal) have left the club.
