Striker Anderson has ‘faith’ in new boss as players sign up to March Town United revolution

STRIKER Stu Anderson said he had faith in Paul Crosbie’s March Town United revolution after a host of players signed for the club this week.

Anderson ended speculation linking him to Huntingdon Town by re-committing to the Hares on Monday night. Centre-back Adam Sutton, who played a key part in last season’s campaign, has also re-signed.

Anderson said: “I’ve got faith in what Paul is going to try and achieve at the club. That’s why I’m staying.

“Paul has come in with new ideas and a bit of a total football mission. It’s quite exciting and you can’t help but feel enthusiastic about it.”

Crosbie, who took over at the GER last month, said: “Stu is passionate about the club and he likes what we’re doing. It’s also tremendous that Adam has re-signed.

“It provides that little bit of continuity. They know the club and they will be able to enforce the right attitude in the dressing room.

“There will be no superstars - that’s not a dressing room I want. It needs to be a group of players who trust each other.”

The Hares have also signed former Desborough Town forward Aaron McKenna, former Wisbech Town full back Sam Darlow and former Chatteris Town midfielder Aaron Bailey.

Goalkeepers Marc Hipwell and Jack McKeown have signed along with Darren Rawthorn, Callum Young, Josh Westley, Josh Jackman, James Bradshaw, Gary White, Sean White and Joe Barnes.

Left-winger James McDonough, full back Ben Lemmon and midfielder Giuliano Staffieri have re-signed.

Defenders Lewis Cook and Marc Welcher may still be tempted with a move, while captain Luke Pepper and winger Ash Brand will definitely leave the GER.

Pepper watched from the sidelines as McKenna scored his first goal for the Hares in a 4-1 pre-season defeat to Peterborough Northern Star on Tuesday.

Crosbie said his new-look side could take a lot of positives from the loss and that several other players had verbally agreed to join the Hares.

He said: “It’s a new era at the club and we’re doing things off the pitch as well. The club have invested in a minibus so players don’t have to drive to games.

“I don’t think it’s going to be quite the doom and gloom that some people predicted.”

March, who will travel to Wellingborough Town in the FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round, will host Thrapston Town in the first preliminary round of the FA Vase.
