March Town United set to sign ex-Peterborough United ‘keeper Butcher on ‘week-to-week’ basis
FORMER Peterborough United ‘keeper Aaron Butcher is set to make his March Town United debut against Ipswich Wanderers on Saturday.
Hares boss Brett Whaley is poised to pull off a transfer coup tonight after Butcher was released from his contract at Evo-Stik Division One South Ilkeston yesterday.
The 20-year-old has verbally agreed to join March on a “week-to-week” basis and will replace Lewis Moat who has been “temporarily” recalled by parent club Peterborough Northern Star.
Whaley said: “Aaron’s a great ‘keeper and to get someone in from a side who plays two levels above us, even if it’s only for a few games, is fantastic.
“The loan deal with Lewis is not dead because he’s been excellent so we’ll have a brilliant ‘keeper either way in the coming weeks.”
