Pearce signing sure to bolster Town
SIGNING UP: Jordan Pearce in action for Bodmin Town against St Austell last season

ST AUSTELL have bolstered their squad by completing the signing of Bodmin Town’s Jordan Pearce.

Pearce, a former apprentice with Plymouth Argyle, will be an excellent addition for the Lillywhites, adding strength and a bit of bite in the midfield following the departure of midfielders Olly Brokenshire and Neil Slateford. Both are heading back to their former club Bodmin Town.

Harry Evans has also joined Bodmin, while striker Liam Prynn has moved on to join Launceston.
St Austell’s joint-manager Jason Chapman was delighted with the signing of Pearce and said: “Jordan Pearce is an excellent addition to the squad, at a young age he already has a excellent football CV.

“With myself being involved at Argyle I've known about him for years but playing against last season for Bodmin he really stood out.

“Athletic, energetic, reads game well, loves a tackle and can pick a pass. His addition has certainly improved the quality already in the squad.”

His was a stand out performance in the January Senior Cup meeting between the two clubs which Bodmin edged and from that day forward he has been a target for the St Austell bosses.

Last week saw the announcement of the new fixtures and Chapman added: “I’m looking forward, as always, to the start of the season, we have had a few players depart the squad for one reason or another and have brought in Kirk (Davies) and Jordan (Pearce) who are excellent signings.

“We have a solid pre-season in place with some good fixtures and numerous training sessions which should hopefully stand us in good shape for the charity bowl and opening game in FA Cup.

“We are working hard to bring one or two back new faces into squad and everybody is looking forward to getting started again.”

The club’s full pre-season schedule has been announced.

They will kick off with a game away at Penryn Athletic on July 11, before hosting Western League side Cadbury heath on Saturday, July 15.

A trip to Porthleven then follows on July 25 before facing Premier Division champions Tavistock in the South West Peninsula League’s Charity Bowl at Newton Abbot on Sunday, July 30.

Their final pre-season game is at home to local rivals St Blazey on Tuesday, August 1.
