Chigwell Athletic unveil new signings

By Danny Caro, July 25, 2012

Chigwell Athletic this week made a big statement of intent with the announcement of three new signings.

Joining recent acquisition Richard Baum are Brad Gayer, Pierce Prince and Dean Ben Yosef.

Midfielder Gayer, 18, the former Charlton academy player, was snapped up from east London rivals Woodford Wanderers.

Right-back Prince, also, 18, has joined from Redbridge Jewish Care, while Ben Yosef returns following a spell at London Maccabi Lions.

Chigwell boss Richard Slater told JC Sport: "We're very happy with the four additions. It's great to add some quality, young players like Brad and Pierce, the pace and skill of Ben Yosef, and even in his mid-30's, Baumy is a class act. He'll be massive for us this season.

"Hopefully we've strengthened enough and in the right areas to be in the mix again."

Slater went on to confirm that brothers, Lloyd and Russell Becker, are leaving the club. The pair have joined the newly-formed Southgate Harmen Masters team. Leading scorer Glenn Michaels has retired due to work commitments.
