....Loughborough University players.
Charlie Pearce is the brother of Reading defender Alex Pearce, while Will Ricketts has also signed, he is a former Aston Villa academy player and was playing at Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division outfit Chasetown before relocating to the area.
Thatcham`s reserve team manager Garry Cook said: "Both lads have been training hard with both first and reserve team squads for the last two weeks. They said they really liked the set up here at Thatcham and can't wait to get playing. Charlie is a 6`2" centre back and Will is a nippy right midfielder/wing-back.
“We are chuffed to get them both signed on Hellenic and Southern League forms.”
Both Pearce and Ricketts played with current first-team full-back Sam Flegg and former Thatcham favourite Charles Mpi at Loughborough University.”
