Summer target finally secured

Foy now a Saint

Marheineke has swooped to land striker Matt Foy after initially missing out on the player during the summer. Foy opted to sign for Cambridge City then but has now left that club with Marheineke pouncing. He scored twice for Saints in a friendly against Step 5 side Cogenhoe last weekend and had a productive spell in Step 3 football for Harlow last season when on loan from League Two side Cambridge United, who released him earlier this year.

"Matt is an out-and-out number nine who scores goals," added Marheineke."He got 16 goals in 24 games at Harlow last season and that shows what he can do at our level.

"We made Matt an offer in the summer when he chose to go to Cambridge City, but it didn't work out for him there.

"He has become available again and looked very sharp for us in the friendly last Tuesday, so I'm delighted to be able to bring him in. "Matt had a lot of loan deals and now needs to find a home. I feel sure he'll be a great fit for us and vice versa."
