New signing for Kingstonian

Aaron Lamont

Kingstonian re-sign somebody familiar.

Kingstonian Football Club is pleased to announced the signing of Aaron Lamont.

Aaron is a player who needs little introduction. Having served the club well in the past, the creative midfield player will prove a valuable addition to the squad.

"Aaron is a player with the characteristics to fit the profile of the team," stated manager Hayden Bird. "With Reece damaging his ligaments last Saturday we are a little short in midfield. Aaron will provide another excellent option."

"In speaking to him, it is clear he has a real affinity with the club. He was very keen to come back and is determined to be successful here."

"For the first time this season, we can really focus on the league now. The first half of the campaign have been dominated by the cup competitions. We wanted to give the supporters a cup run and in doing so, we have created some marvellous memories. The games against Dartford, Macclesfield Town, AFC Fylde and Woking in particular have reinstated the pride this club deserves. We were disappointed to lose to Leamington but perhaps the defeat illustrates just how far we have come. To very narrowly lose in a replay to a team in the National League North says it all. To be disappointed that we didn't win the replay, speaks volumes for the undoubted progress this team is making."

"Tuesday night aside, we can now focus on the League. This is the main consideration when signing Aaron. To be in mid-January and having only played nineteen League games concerns me. We have a heavy schedule ahead of us, and in order to prevent injuries from tired muscles, we need more strength in depth. Therefore, if the right players become available, we are looking very carefully at where we can add to the playing squad."

"Tomorrow we face an excellent East Thurrock team. I know John well, who is an experienced man. His team will be organised and difficult to beat. In my view, this will be one of our most difficult away games. East Thurrock will be serious promotion candidates in May, so we will have to be at our best."

The Manager confirmed Aaron Lamont will be included in the squad tomorrow, as will Dan Bennett, who has served his suspension. Defender Ollie Cook and midfield player Reece Hall are both definitely out, while "one or two other players" face fitness tests.

"I'm sure that the supporters will give Aaron a warm reception. Dan Bennett will also return, which is a big boost for the team, we have missed him. Eddie Dsane will also be in the squad having been cup-tied. Eddie has shown his quality in training and I'm expecting good things from him. One or two others are a little doubtful after suffering knocks on Tuesday, so we will be making a couple of late decisions tomorrow lunchtime. I'm sure everyone understands that I would rather keep that information to myself, so as not to alert the opposition!"
