Ryman League Division One North club Witham Town have announced the signing of experienced goalkeeper…

….Nicky Eyre from neighbours Heybridge Swifts.

Eyre started his career with Tottenham Hotspur and won caps for England at Schoolboy and under-17 level.

He has since had spell with Grays Athletic, Dagenham & Redbridge, Rushden & Diamonds, St Albans City, Chelmsford City, Bishop`s Stortford and AFC Sudbury.

Eyre is suspended for Saturday but will be available for selection after the weekend.

Commenting on new signing, Witham`s assistant-manager Brad King said: “Having played in goal myself, for me he is one of, if not the best goalkeeper in the league. Garry Kimble and myself named him in our team of the season last season so it’s ironic when he contacted us saying he has parted ways with Heybridge.

“What impressed us most is that he was keen to play for and contacted us having moved down the road and believes in what we are trying to do. He could have moved elsewhere for other reasons but he knows of Garry and myself and was keen to work together after seeing what the club achieved last season pipping his former club to the play-offs.

“It’s important the club signed another long-term goalkeeper and I believe the club are fortunate to have two top keepers.

“Since releasing Danny Sambridge, Sam Baxter has played on loan from West Ham United and performed well the last two games but it’s important the club look long-term and we couldn’t miss the opportunity to sign Nicky.”
