Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Ahead of Saturday`s ultimately disappointing Buildbase FA Vase Fourth Round exit, Gary Setchell, manager of ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division club Wisbech Town, announced the signing of vastly experienced midfielder Richard Bunting.

Bunting has spent the last four years with Evo-Stik League South East leaders AFC Rushden & Diamonds and has been their club captain since the 2014/15 season.

He also skippered the King’s Lynn Town side which won the Northern Premier League First Division South title in 2012/13 under Setchell.

He has previously won the UCL title with Long Buckby and has also turned out for Cogenhoe United, Raunds Town and Brackley Town.

Having played his football at Step 4 this season, the 36-year-old was eligible to play in the Vase and goes straight into the squad for Saturday’s last 32 tie.
