Ben Dillon Signs

Basingstoke Town are pleased to announce the signing of 31 year old striker, Ben Dillon.

‘Dills’ previously of Bournemouth FC during his youth and also represented Basingstoke Town as a 17 year old. Ben has also had spells with Hartley Wintney in both management and as a player. We sign the forward from Bermerton Heath FC and we thank them for assistance in making the transfer happen so quickly.

Dan Brownlie commented:

‘I’ve worked with Dills before. He’s a very talented football and we’re pleased to get him in. I learned of his availability some time ago now, but he’s worked incredibly hard over the course of the past few months to get fit as various clubs. Being a Basingstoke boy, I know this club means a lot to him and he was very keen to get on board. He’s a great first touch and certainly knows where the goal is. It’s one of a few positions we’ve wanted to strengthen to allow us greater depth and wider choice.’

Ben Dillon said:

‘I’m buzzing to get started. I feel fitter than ever and know I can offer this club something, I’m really keen to get help take this club forward. I’ve lived in Basingstoke all my life so it means a lot to me that we get this club winning games and I’m proud to be a part of it.’

Ben has travelled with the match day squad to this afternoon’s game versus Barnstaple and is available for selection.
