With the return of drier weather Guildford City are back in Southern League action at the Spectrum this Saturday, kick-off at 3pm. City host Clevedon Town who are making the long journey up from the Somerset coast. In the earlier encounter this season at Clevedon our opponents won 2-1 in a game that saw the early sending off of City goalkeeper Will Dukes.
Manager Kevin Rayner has announced a number of new signings, and he is confident that the new look City side can get back on track and pull away from the relegation places. Notable amongst the new additions to the squad are former City favourite Joel Greaves, defender Tom Williams and striker Andy White.
Joel Greaves is a Guildford City goal scoring legend. His 33 goals scored in the 2010-11 season is a post 1996 club record, and his goal in the FA Cup to knock out then Ryman Premier leaders Tonbridge Angels will be remembered by many. Most recently Joel has been playing for Phoenix Sports in the Kent League. We also welcome the highly experienced central defender Tom Williams who joins us from Notts County. Tom gained a full international cap for Cyprus in 2006 and has made nearly 300 Football League appearances for a number of clubs including Peterborough United, Barnsley and Swansea City. Finally this week we concluded the incoming transfer of Andy White from Chertsey Town. Andy is a former Reading and Gillingham striker and he has considerable Conference South experience with Eastleigh.
