Boro boss Jimmy Ginnelly busy building squad

Big signings

Jimmy Ginnelly has swooped to make his second signing of the summer.

Hot on the heels of Callum Powell last week, the Boro’ have announced that another of the Southern League Central’s top performers has agreed terms.

Centre-half Declan Towers has made the switch from Kettering Town, re-joining Ginnelly after previously playing for him at Barwell. “I know Jimmy well from three seasons at Barwell and I’m excited about what he’s looking to do here at the Boro’” said Towers.

“It’s a good ground, and there’s a good set-up behind the scenes. There’s potential here to win the league and bounce straight back up. Winning the league last season was a career highlight for me, and I’m hoping to repeat that again this year.

I’ve enjoyed my time at Kettering and Marcus Law is a really good Manager, but I’m excited by the potential here and the calibre of player that Jimmy’s looking at so I can’t wait to get started.” Jimmy also expressed his pleasure at the signing “I’ve known Dec for a long time and was eager to bring him to Liberty Way.

“I think the fans are going to love him, he’s a rugged defender but he’s good on the ball and reads the game well. You’ll never get less than 100% from Dec, and that’s one of the key things we’re looking for.”

Towers began his career as a youth player, in his native Leicestershire, with Oadby Town, before moving to Hinckley United and Barwell. Last season Towers joined the Poppies, where he helped marshal a stingy defence, one that conceded the second fewest number of goals as they won the Southern League Central crown by, a convincing, 14 points.
