Jonathan Wafula Signs

The preparations ahead of the 2017/18 season continued at pace, with the arrival of Jonathan Wafula, who signed last night, having finished the season at Shaw Lane. It was at Shaw Lane where he helped them win the Evo-Stick Division One, South title by six points from Witton Albion. An attacking midfielder, with an eye for goal, Jonathon has aspirations of playing at the highest level possible, having spent three years in non-league football, since leaving Chesterfield where he was a scholar.

The best way to achieve that is to put in a string of fine performances for Gainsborough Trinity. A win-win for everyone. On the completion of his deal, the highly ambitious 22-year-old stated:

"I'm hungry to get back to playing football league football. My last club was Shaw lane AFC where we won the league and I feel like it's time for me to push myself further."

The decision to sign for Gainsborough was a simple one, for the forward minded midfielder, especially with Dave Frecklington at the helm:

"Frecks is someone I've played against a few times when he was at both Spalding and Lincoln United. He approached me just after the end of the season, which took me by surprise. He mentioned that I'm someone he's had his eye on for a while so I was flattered when he wanted to bring me on board."

"I've heard good things from players I know from Spalding about his management style, so it was an easy choice for me to get on board and work with him. I'm really excited to get started and repay Frecks and the club for giving me this chance. Now, I just want to help the club push further up the league and compete with the big clubs."

Welcome to Gainsborough, Jonathan. We look forward to see you bursting from midfield and popping up with a goal or two from the middle of the park, good luck and enjoy your stay. Follow Jonathan on twitter @JonathanWafula and give him a warm, Gainsborough Trinity welcome!
