Steve McKimm looks forward to having Tom Beere and Tom Parkinson back in his Tonbridge Angels' squad
TONBRIDGE ANGELS manager Steve McKimm has retained the services of midfielders Tom Beere and Tom Parkinson.
“Both players endured frustrating seasons last time out due to recovering from long term injuries but will undoubtedly be looking forward to the upcoming campaign and getting their footballing careers back on track,” said a statement from the Vanarama National League South club.
“Tom Parkinson has the distinction of being Steve McKimm’s longest continuously serving player having joined the Angels in May 2014 and but for injury would have notched up far more than the 186 appearances shown in the records. As well as a holding midfielder but capable of grabbing goals particularly at set-pieces, Parkinson is equally at home in a central defensive role.
“Tom Beere has had two spells at Longmead Stadium, first joining in 2017 from AFC Wimbledon where he had made a number of first-team appearances. An attack-minded midfielder he will undoubtedly be relishing the opportunity of displaying his natural ability in a National South setting.”
McKimm told the club website: “Having these two players back in action after such a long-time out will be like having two new signings for the team.
“They were both a big miss last season and we can only speculate where we might have been had they been available.
“That’s all in the past now and I look forward to having them back in my squad.”
