Angels get their Main man
Monday 16th January 2006Ryman League Division One club Tonbridge Angels received a triple boost at the weekend, reports www.tonbridgeafc.co.uk
Angels managed to include their latest signing, striker Jon Main, in their side that beat Banstead Athletic on Saturday to maintain third spot in the table, having earlier received the news that highly rated forward Luke Piscina had agreed to stay with the club.
Main made his debut after signing late on Friday from league rivals and Kent neighbours Cray Wanderers.
Main was Cray's leading goalscorer with twenty-one in all competitions so far this season.
Previously with Kentish Observer League side VCD Athletic, Main has also played for Perth Panthers in Australia.
Piscina has become a firm favourite with Tonbridge supporters since becoming a first-team regular in 2002/03, when he scored six goals in eight games after coming through from the youth side.
He maintained his good form and progress until this season when, although he has still managed seven goals from fourteen starts, he has wavered slightly as can so often happen with young players. Indeed, he decided to take a short sabbatical from the game in order to re-charge his batteries.
Club secretary Charlie Cole said: "It is with great pleasure that I am able to inform you the Luke Piscina will be staying with the club. He will re-commence training this week after taking a short break from football."
The news will come as a relief to many supporters, particularly after such a long period of doubt over the youngster's future at Longmead.
More good news followed for Angels with Danny Glozier signing his month's loan extension ahead of the game with Banstead.
His club, Nationwide Conference neighbours Gravesend & Northfleet, have agreed to the extension although will be able to call back the left back at a day's notice at any time during the spell.
