Perfect 10 commit to Cambridge City for next Isthmian League campaign
Cambridge City have seen 10 players commit to the club for the 2020/21 season.
Robbie Nightingale has acted quickly to build on a good run of form before the Isthmian League, North Division season was brought to a premature end.
The Lilywhites struggled to find a settled squad in the early part of the campaign but, before the cancellation because of the coronavirus pandemic, they were on a run of seven games unbeaten without conceding a goal.
Mikey Davis, Jordan Gent, Dan George, Luke Knight, Isaac Maynard, Nathan Olukanmi, Jarid Robson, Ryan Sharman, Seb Simpson and Tom Wood have all committed for next season, and they are also in discussions with other members of the squad.
“In the first half of last season the number of players coming and going meant we did not have the stability we would of liked and this was reflected in our results," said City manager Nightingale. "Gradually the jigsaw came together and we showed what we were capable of.
"For the season to end like it did was frustrating but the correct decision, protecting our fantastic front-line services and the lives of the vulnerable has to be priority.
“Like our fantastic fans, the coaching staff are all City guys through and through with hundreds of games for the club between us. We only want players who value what playing for City means and take pride in pulling on the famous black and white shirt each week.”
City defender Seb Simpson said: “I’m pleased to stay at City, it’s a great club run by great people. I want to help to get the club back to where it belongs and I feel like we have a great chance next season. The supporters follow us home and away, you can see what the club means to each and every one of them.”
Midfielder Jarid Robson said, “This was a really easy decision. Since arriving in November I have thoroughly enjoyed playing for the club. At the back end of the season we put together an unbelievable run and really showed what we’re about. I’m excited to continue this into next season and really kick on.”
