Wasps join in spirit of Transfer Deadline Day and add to 1st Team

IMG 20190131 WA0000From Matt:

I am delighted to welcome Lee Prescott to the club from Hornchurch in the Bostick Premier League. I have been trying to get Lee to sign here for a couple of seasons as I genuinely believe he has the ability, energy and attitude to be the best midfield player at this level.

We have only lost one game in the last 6 and that was to the champions elect, but we have drawn 4 of those games and have been in front in all of them in the league, so it shows we need to toughen up mentally and be prepared to stay in front, by doing the uglier side of the game better but still be able to play when we want to. I believe Lee adds these qualities to the squad we have built here.

It goes without saying he could certainly play at the level he has been at with Margate and Hornchurch and we are lucky to have his signature. I am sure we'll have interest in him during his stay here and hopefully he can help us as much as we can help him in getting the best out of him over the remainder of the season.

In addition to Lee, we also last week added forward Jerson Dos Santos who returns to us from Carlshalton on a season long loan, Jerson is one of the most highly rated forward players at this level and again shows the intention of the club on and off the pitch building a squad with such talented players i would like to thank Peter at Carlshalton for his assistance in making this happen. 

We are looking at adding a centre back in the next week as again this is an area that we have to improve, as it’s important we start to work harder and keep clean sheets. We have some exciting attacking players but we need to do better as a group defensively and the players know this but with the additions I expect this to help along with time spent as a group on the training ground.

We have some tough games coming up in February, starting Saturday against Horsham and we need to work hard for more points to keep us moving forward and up the table.
