Stratford Town increase squad

Centre Half and Keeper added

BetVictor Southern League Premier Division Central club Stratford Town added defender Kyle Rowley and goalkeeper Mitch Allen ahead of Saturday`s 3-1 win over bottom-markers Leiston.

Centre-back Rowley, a former Walsall trainee, was Total Motion Midland League Premier Division side Walsall Wood’s players’ and supporters’ player of the season for 2018/19 before moving to Stratford`s league rivals Alvechurch in the summer. The 22-year-old also had a loan spell with Sutton Coldfield Town whilst on the Saddlers books.

Allen is a 19-year-old keeper who was released by Championship side Stoke City at the end of last season. He progressed through the Stoke academy and played for the under-18s as well as having `work experience` with Market Drayton Town in the Northern Premier League Division One South East.
