Wisbech Town closing in on ‘higher level’ midfielder, assistant boss Dear reveals

WISBECH Town are closing in on signing a midfielder who has played at a higher level, assistant manager Chris Dear revealed today.

The Fenmen suffered a double blow this week as striker Scott Ginty snubbed them in favour of a move to Bishop’s Stortford and midfield talent Sam Murphy agreed to join Peterborough Northern Star.

But Dear, who returned to join Steve Appleby and Darren Jimson in the Wisbech dugout last week, said there were other “irons in the fire”.

He said: “I’ve been talking to a midfielder all week. He is a midfielder who has played at a higher level and passes the ball for fun.

“We are close to bringing him in and we will see what happens when Apps (Appleby) returns from holiday.”
