We are delighted to announce the signing of Goalkeeper Aaron Watkins.
Aaron who has previously played for Thatcham Town and more recently Flackwell Heath is a tall and powerful keeper.
Manager, Dan Brownlie said on the signing ‘We’re really pleased Aaron has chosen to sign with us. He’s an ambitious player who wants to prove himself at this level and hopefully grow with the club. He’s a commanding figure and someone I’m sure will do well for us.’
Aaron who is available for selection on New Years Day said ‘I’m really happy & excited to join Basingstoke Town. I’m looking forward to helping this team push on for the rest of the season!’
Dan Brownlie went on to say;
‘We’ve been keen to get in a new keeper since Chris [Rackley] left as ideally we are working with two at any one time. It now means we’ve got two good keepers in Aaron and Freddie and with young Huw Holliman also making good progress in the Youth Team – there is certainly competition. This it the type of competition we want through the whole squad and we expect to make further signings over the course of the next couple of weeks to enable us to have that.’
