STRIKER Stu Anderson has stunned March Town United by dropping down a level to join their neighbours Chatteris Town.

Anderson, who was handed the captain’s armband by Hares boss Paul Crosbie this season, completed his sensational switch to the Lilies last night.

The forward said he had “stopped enjoying his football” at the GER and was looking forward to helping Chatteris fight off relegation.

“It was a tough choice especially as I was captain,” he said. “But it could do me good.

“I’m hoping to get back in the goals and secure some survival points.

“I went through Paul (Crosbie) and did things properly. He’s left the door open for me.”

Chatteris sit second bottom in the Kershaw Premier League while March are 12th in the Thurlow Nunn First Division.

Crosbie said: “We wish Stu well and thank him for his efforts.”

Anderson’s transfer is not the first switch between the two clubs this season.

The Lilies were rocked by a massive exodus in the summer with a series of players sealing moves to the GER.

Since then, Jack Saunders, Stu Porter, Aaron Bailey and Aidan Hollis have all completed U-turns and returned to their home-town club at West Street.
