Whitby land former England Under-19s striker Fewster

Whitby Town is delighted to announce the signing of striker Bradley Fewster from National League North side Blyth Spartans.

The signing of the former England under-19, for whom he netted five times in seven appearances, comes as a real statement of intent from Chris Hardy, with the Blues boss tying Fewster down to a contract until the end of next season.

The striker joins with a strong pedigree in the game, having appeared for Middlesbrough in the same youth team as Junior Mondal, as well as playing in the Non-League set up with Blyth and Spennymoor Town.

Fewster also linked up with York City for a loan spell, bagging the League Two player of the month award in the process.

And Blues boss Hardy is pleased with the business done.

“I’m delighted to welcome Brad to the football club,” he told whitby-town.com.

“I believe he brings with him a number of qualities and this excites me to work with him.

“He is a player on the way up, with youth and being extremely talented as his building blocks to help him kick on and get back into the full time game, which is his motivation.

“Brad brings something different to what the current forwards offer at the club. He is a fox in the box and there’s no secret in the fact I’ve been desperate to add someone to the playing staff that can score 20-25 goals a season and help with the overall progression of the team.”

Fewster will go straight into the squad for Saturday’s game against Basford United.
