Ex Bromley defender Charlie Fox leaves his comfort zone to sign for Glasgow-based Queen's Park
Former Bromley defender Charlie Fox says he has moved out of his comfort zone by playing his football in Scotland this season.
The 22-year-old made 13 appearances in the Vanarama National League last season as the club reached a personal best finish of seventh before losing to eventual promoted side Hartlepool United in the Eliminator play-offs.
The former Queen’s Park Rangers Academy graduate has signed for Queen’s Park, who were the only full-time outfit in Scottish League Two last season and clinched the title and will be playing in League One this term.
“I’m really pleased to have had the opportunity to join the club,” Fox told Queen’s Park’s website.
“It was an easy decision to make from a personal perspective, despite interest from clubs down south.
“I feel that nothing really happens unless you take yourself out of your comfort zone and the opportunity to come north to Glasgow was one which I really wanted to take.
“I’ve been made to feel very welcome by everyone so far and I can’t wait to get going.”
Recently-appointed Head coach Laurie Ellis said Fox will be “a great addition” to the squad and that Fox is “an ambitious young player who is delighted to be here and is excited about the challenges ahead.”
Queen’s Park will be playing their home games at fellow Glasgow-based club Partick Thistle while Lesser Hampden is redeveloped.
The Spiders – founded in 1867 - were the landlords of Hampden Park – Scotland’s National Stadium – but sold the stadium to the Scottish Football Association for £5m and played their last game there last season and will be playing their home games at the adjacent Lesser Hampden once ground improvements are completed.
