Steve Smith has confirmed that he has agreed terms for two new players immediately followed by two more next week.
The first player is striker Frankie Merrifield who is set to return to the blues after having joined us in October 2014 and playing until July 2016,where he then moved on to play for Chelmsford City. Whilst at the Blues Frankie made 57 appearances mostly in midfield.
Last season he played upfront for East Thurrock and scored 17 goals in 37 appearances before the season ended prematurely. We would like to welcome back Frankie Merrifield!
Our next player is midfielder Ben Marlow; who spent all his formative years under the wings of the West Ham United youth set up, playing for the Hammers at all youth levels from aged 8 through to reserve/under 23. Ben had also had a spell with the Blues from 2015 until 2016 where he also went on to join East Thurrock, where he made 86 appearances and scored 11 goals. We also are delighted to welcome back Ben Marlow!
