Wisker Boost for Whitstable
Dan Wisker

Wisker said: “It’s been a difficult season so far at the club. With all the injuries and the comings and goings of players and new management etc. After Peter Nott, Steve Nolan and Paul Hyde parted from the club, I have to be honest and say I wanted out of the club. But after seeking advice, I was told to stay and see what the new manager had to offer, so I did and I am still here today and will remain here. The Faversham approach did interest me, as I think I am at an age now where I am looking to better myself in any way possible.

“I think it’s important for me to consider any interest from other clubs at this time of my semi-pro career. I always want to better myself and play at the highest level possible. I have turned down Faversham as I feel I would be taking a sideways step as I don’t believe that Faversham are any better than us here at Whitstable. But I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ray and Faversham for their interest.

“The biggest key factor for me in staying is Justin and his team. The team are starting to bond well and there is a buzz around the dressing room with all the players. This because we know the players Justin has brought in have the ability to help us get better results and push on up the league. There is no doubt in my mind that with all the players fit and available, Justin and his team will help to build great things here at Whitstable.

“In addition, Justin has made me club captain which is a great honour and one I will take very seriously. I must also thank the supporters for making myself and my family welcome at the club since I have arrived, please keep singing away as it really does help spur us on.”

Luchford said: “I am obviously delighted that Dan has decided to stay, and I think it makes a really big statement as to the intent of this football club.

“I have spoken with Dan at length on numerous occasions and I totally understood that he has been here a long time and does not want to be part of a club languishing at the bottom of the table year after year. However, he can see what we are trying to build here. We have a strong squad now, and once we are all healthy again, I think we will get the results that we need.

“Dan is pivotal to what we are trying to do. He is a great lad, has a great attitude and his commitment is second to none, which is why he is the club captain.

“We need to get him fitter and he knows that, but when he is on his game he is one of the best midfielders in the league. He has consistently performed at this club and a player that most managers in the county admire.

“As I have said, this is a huge boost for the club and for me personally, to know that I have the backing of him and that he wants to be part of this re-building challenge.

“The only thing we need to do now is get him fit to play, I am hopeful he will be back in two weeks to show what he can do once more”
