Marsh becomes a Canary

Hitchin Town sign Biggleswade FC midfielder.

Alex Marsh has moved down the road to Hitchin Town, after playing his part in Biggleswade Fc's success.

Former Rushden & Diamonds and Peterborough United youth teamer Alex is an attacking midfielder who has scored goals for fun over the past few seasons

Marsh leaves Biggleswade FC having scored an impressive 62 goals in 106 appearances and he played an influential role in our treble-winning season last term finishing as top scorer with 32 goals and even more assists.

Whilst we were delighted to retain his services over the summer despite interest from a host of clubs higher up the football ladder, the lure of testing himself at the next level and the potential rewards it brings have meant he has taken what he said himself was "a very tough decision" to move on.

Alex Marsh

Following his departure to Hitchin Town, Alex has asked us to publish the following statement on his behalf:..

"I would like to thank the whole of Biggleswade FC for the support and success we have achieved together, over the past 3 years.

What the club has achieved since its formation in 2016 is something for the whole club to be proud of, and I am honoured to have played a small part in bringing the successes to the team.

To all the Biggleswade committee and people involved with the club, thank you again. And to Dave (Northfield), Mark (Inskip) & James (Petty) - I couldn’t speak more highly of what you have created for me and the rest of the team over the past 3 years.

All the best with the rest of the season, and I look forward to coming down to watch the boys continuing the clubs development and success".
