Basingstoke Town Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Simon Dunn.
Simon signs on dual registration from Slough Town FC following successful conversations between the two clubs and player.
The Basingstoke Academy product joined Slough in 2016 and has since won Players’ Player and Managers’ Player of the Season awards.
Dan Brownlie commented:
‘Simon is a very gifted player and will add much needed experience to our team. He’s had some time out since October; so obviously there is no pressure on him to suddenly set the league alight, that said we all know what he is capable of. We’ll be keeping lines of communication open with Slough, but the selfish hope is that we’ll have him for the remainder of the season.’
‘Dunny’ said on his return to the ‘Stoke…
`I am pleased to be getting back to football after a three month break from the game due to mental health issues which many people will be aware of. The break has done me a lot of good and I am really happy; I feel ready to get back playing. Again, a big thank you to Slough Town for the support they have given me during that period.’
‘Looking forward, I am excited to be representing my hometown club again where I have had many fond memories. I’m looking forward to helping achieve more positive results between now and the end of the season.’
Simon will be eligible for the fixture versus Mangotsfield in Winchester on Saturday afternoon.
