There was good and bad news for Bostik League North club Norwich United.
The Planters announced the signing of Liam Moriarty.
The striker has signed from Anglian Combination Division One side Wymondham Town and goes straight into the squad for tonight’s game at Aveley.
Moriarty has been prolific for Wymondham, scoring 13 goals in just nine starts this season, including 6 goals in his last three games and over 50 goals in his two and a bit seasons with Town.
However, vice-captain Jamie Speller has announced his retirement from football.
The former Wroxham, Wymondham and Norwich City midfielder took to social media to post: “It is with a very heavy heart that today I announce my immediate retirement from competitive football. Due to work commitments outside of football and my continued hard work towards pursuing a new career, I am no longer able to commit my time to football.
“I have been lucky enough to play in some very successful teams throughout my career, winning numerous accolades and titles and for that I am very grateful.
“I want to say thank you to everybody that has supported me along the way, none more so than my parents for giving up their time on countless occasions.
“All good things must come to an end but for me this is just the start of something very exciting happening in my life and a journey I’m really looking forward to”.
