BAFC manager Steve Riley moved in to the transfer market last night and made a trio of signings, incoming to Heritage Park are Matty Moffat, Cameron Wilson and Luke Gilhespy.
Steve Riley said “I am delighted to have brought 3 players of this quality to the club, I am sure all 3 will be a big success.”
Who are our new signings? Here’s a little bit more info on the signings:
Matty Moffat will need no introduction to Bishop fans having played the majority of his career with our local rivals West Auckland. A local lad who is tall, strong and pacey Matty is a centre forward with a goal scoring habit.
Matty’s previous clubs include Evenwood Town, West Auckland, Blyth Spartans, Gateshead, Sunderland Nissan, Consett, Durham, Tow Law Town.
On signing for Bishop Matty said “I had positive talks with Steve Riley and he explained what he is trying to achieve at the club, it really got a positive buzz back within me and this is something I have been missing for a while.”
“I really can’t wait to start the new season with a full pre-season I am confident the goals will flow. I already know a few of the lads at the club and they are very good players and top lads off the pitch, it will make integrating in to the squad easy. We all have the desire to work hard and achieve great things for Bishop.”
Matty’s signing sets up a mouth-watering forward line partnership with Andrew Johnson, one which if history dictates will produce goals galore.
Cameron Wilson joins us having played last season with Stockton Town, Cameron who is 19 years old is a pacey direct winger who likes to take the game to the opposition, Cameron started his career at York reserves.
Luke Gilhespy re-joins the club from Dunston UTS having played for the club under Colin Myers previously, Luke is a tough no nonsense centre half.
The club would like to welcome all 3 players to the club.
