Kirk signs on for the Lillywhites

Kirk signs on for the Lillywhites
NEW BOY: Kirk Davies in action for Helston agains St Austell

ST AUSTELL have made their first signing of the summer, capturing Kirk Davies from rivals Helston Athletic.

Davies who captained the Blues last year will be a valuable addition to the squad and will be no stranger to the Lillywhites’ strike-force, Liam Eddy and Mark Goldsworthy, who are both ex-Helston players themselves.

The versatile former Falmouth man will add further strength to the St Austell squad when they return for pre-season training later this month.

“He was one of our top targets,” joint-manager Daniel Nancarrow told the Voice.

“He can play in a number of positions, can improve the squad and will fit in well with the lads. We are really pleased to get him.”

The club have also announced that they retained several members of last year’s squad, despite advances from other teams and are closing in on an unnamed player from one of their closest rivals.

Last week they announced that Martin Watts, Eddy and Goldsworthy had all committed themselves to the squad.

Yesterday morning several players including last year’s captain Chris Reski, Will Tinsley, Martin Giles, Tom Chambers, George Roberts, Jordan Dingle and Dan Hart were all announced as having been retained.

That leaves the future of Neil Slateford and Liam Prynn under question. Slateford could be set to follow Olly Brokenshire and Harry Evans to Bodmin, while Prynn is also a target of Launceston.

St Austell meanwhile, have announced a friendly against local rivals St Blazey, on Tuesday, August 1.

The Green and Blacks have also announced friendlies at home to Ivybridge on July 22 and away to Plymouth Parkway reserves on July 29.

Rumours are also circulating that former St Austell and St Blazey centre-back Tom Smith could be on his way to St Dennis.

The Clay Country club could be set to sign the former Truro City captain, who ten years ago lifted the FA Vase at Wembley with the White Tigers.

Since then he has appeared for both St Austell and St Blazey and if he does complete a move to St Dennis he will be a very good signing for the club.

Ex-St Blazey boss Alan Carey has been a busy man since taking over Porthleven, a team that he last managed in the late 1990s.

Carey who also showed an interest in the St Austell job is hoping to make a double swoop for the Sims brothers, Jared, from Godolphin, and Josh, from St Blazey.
