Metropolitan Police have announced that they have signed two more players for the upcoming Bostik Premier League season.

Jay Gasson joins from Vanarama National League South side Hampton & Richmond and Tom Bird re-joins the Met from Evo-Stik League South Premier new boys Gosport Borough.

Gasson is a very experienced player. He left Basingstoke Town last summer after spending six seasons there, having joined them from Havant & Waterlooville in 2010.

Previously he also turned out for Farnborough, Corinthian-Casuals, Whyteleafe and Croydon Athletic.

Bird also joined Gosport in the summer of 2016 from Basingstoke.

Twenty-eight-year-old left-back Bird`s former clubs include Fleet Town, Kingstonian, Carshalton Athletic and Hayes & Yeading United.

Met boss Jim Cooper said: “Although we have to keep the squad numbers low due to the financial restraints this season, I am very pleased to announce that we have signed two more players who both have extensive experience of playing higher level football. Jay played for Hampton & Richmond last season and has previously played for Basingstoke Town, Havant & Waterlooville and Woking.

“He is a very experienced and dominant centre half and will provide leadership on and off the park. Birdy returns to the club from Gosport Borough.

“He is an excellent left-sided player, equally comfortable in attack as he is in defence. He has also played previously for Basingstoke Town and Kingstonian’s whilst also being a professional footballer at Chelsea.

“We will add a couple more players after our friendly this Tuesday at Northwood FC so that by this Thursday the first-team squad will be in place”.
