ALCESTER Town manager Danny Janes has hailed the signing of versatile player Luke Bowles.
Bowles, who can play in defence or midfield, played for Redditch Borough last season and Janes detailed the impact Bowles can have on the squad.
“Luke achieved great success with Redditch Borough in Midland League Division Three. They also had a great season last season in Division Two and Luke was a massive part of that success,” said Janes.
“He has a winning mentality at this level and I hope he can share that with the players. He has a lot of experience in this league and I am sure I will be speaking to him about a few teams.
“Luke demonstrates the professional approach that I really admire. His approach to training and games will set the standards to the rest of the players.”
Bowles is currently injured after a recurrence of an ankle problem from last season and an MRI scan will assess the damage.
“He has trained really well but it was clear he was playing through the pain. I’ve told him to take his time and get things right before he plays again as it’s a long season and he will still play a big part in the season,” added Janes.
Also arriving at the Stratford Road club are attacking midfielder Ellis Kalach who played for Inkberrow in Midland League Three last season and centre back/right back Brad Jones.
Alcester Town begin their Midland League Division Three campaign at home to Shipston Excelsior on August 19.
