Basford Complete Two More Quality Signings

2 years ago By Simon Ball-McQueen

Striker Daryll Thomas & midfielder Jermaine Hollis signed on the dotted line after last Saturday’s final pre-season friendly against Brighouse Town.

Basford United are delighted to announce the addition of two more players, as they prepare for their debut in the Evo-Stik Division One South at Gresley FC this Saturday.

Long-term target Thomas is a striker proven at Evo-Stik level and will add very good options for manager Martin Carruthers, increasing competition up-front. Central midfielder Jermaine Hollis returns to Basford having left the club two seasons ago to join Long Eaton United.

Having pushed Basford all the way last season, Hollis was a key player for Long Eaton and it’s a great coup for the club too be able to bring him back to Greenwich Avenue and he joins other central midfield signings Ash Grayson and Gino Kelleher, alongside the club’s existing options, leaving plenty of vying for places in the middle of the park.

With United being badly hampered by injuries and unavailability during their pre-season campaign, further additions are good news to the club, as they now turn their attentions to preparing for Saturday’s trip to Gresley (15th August). Kick-off is at 3pm and don’t forget that there will be a supporters bus leaving Greenwich Avenue at 12.15pm on matchday, costing just £5 return.

To book a seat on the bus please contact Danny England on 07507666070 or email

Basford round off the season in disappointing style but what a brilliant season Despite the immense disappointment that debut in the Evo-Stik concluded in disappointing fashion last night, it should not detract from a fine season.
