Yet another Salisbury star on the move
11:37pm Sunday 29th June 2014 in Sport
DAN Fitchett has become the eighth player to leave financially wounded Salisbury City, joining last season’s skipper Glenn Wilson at Aldershot Town.
The 23-year-old, who fired 16 times for Whites in Conference Premier under departing boss Mikey Harris, has penned a deal with the club he played for as a youth.
Fitchett, an England C international, served at the Ray Mac for almost three seasons after signing from Wycombe Wanderers.
“Aldershot is my local club and I can't wait to get started," he said. "Town ticked all the boxes for me - the club is really professional, the facilities are great and it's still near enough a Football League set-up.
“As a striker goals are a key part of my game but I think I bring a few different things too: I'm quick, direct and live on the last shoulder of the defenders and I can also play the ball to the feet.
“I've done well in the past two seasons but I think I can do better.”
The striker leaves the Whites at a time of financial turmoil, with the club being relegated to Conference South from Conference Premier after failing to pay players’ wages and secure a bond of £50,000.
If the two payments aren’t resolved by Friday (July 4) at 5pm, they face being expelled from the Conference altogether.
