Brid Signings Ahead of Boro Clash

Bridlington Town's new manager Mike Thompson has been busy before Thursday's opening pre-season friendly with Scarborough Athletic.

The Seadogs visit the Hudgell Solicitors Stadium to begin pre-season for Thompson's Brid side.

On Saturday they announced versatile midfielder Will Taylor had joined from Pickering Town.

The news came as Eddie Rogerson, Matty Plummer, Lewis Dennison and Jack Bulless all committed to the club for the new campaign.

Thompson also confirmed Ali Aydemir had joined from Grantham Town, who were relegated from the NPL Premier in April.

The Brid boss said:

"I had a fantastic conversation with Ali back in May when I was selling to him what I wanted to bring into the club and Ali was very much on board with our vision for the future.

"He is young and hungry and can bring a fearless confidence to our attacking threat this season, I'm really looking forward to seeing Ali in red this year and hope he can excite the fan base with that electric pace and end product."

Long-serving trio James Hitchcock, Andy Norfolk and Benn Lewis will also remain with Brid.

Thompson was pleased:

"Hitch has been at the club since 2014 and both Benn and Andy have been since 2015. With nearly 750 games between them collectively they are going to be a big part of our experience moving into this new era at the club.

"I have played with, coached and now looking forward to managing these lads, they have fantastic attitudes and have this club at heart. Im looking forward to seeing these 3 thrive in this new environment."
