Double Defence Delight: Basford United Confirm new signings

By Josh Wing

Basford United have signed two defenders with National league North experience- Ellis Storey (pictured above) and Liam Bateman.

Left-back Ellis Storey has joined from Gainsborough and will look to make his mark down the wing. A former-Grantham defender, Ellis likes to move the back-line forward and believes he can fit in with Basford style.

Storey knows the club already saying; 'Basford always seemed like a club heading in the right direction. I've followed them for the past couple of years'. It seems like I'd be a good asset to them'.

Meanwhile Basford United are also please by the signing of Right-back Liam Bateman from Kettering. Another addition to the back-line, which looks to strengthen Basford's defensive game ahead of the recent promotion.

From Nottingham, Bateman falls in with Basford's ethos of producing and encouraging talent within the local area.

Liam said; I can see it (the club) developing and I want to be part of that development. Bateman is also keen to push Basford to more success; 'I want to get on that pitch and hit the ground running'.
