Neil Austin Joins Trinity

Neil Austin Joins Trinity

Gainsborough Trinity have tonight secured the services of vastly experienced defender, Neil Austin, on a deal that keeps him at the club until the end of the 2018/19 season. Capable of slotting in anywhere across the back line, Austin has most recently seen service with the bow defunct Shaw Lane, but is most remembered for over 200 football league appearances as well as appearing for Barnsley in the Premier League.

At 34 years of age, Neil brings a mature, no nonsense approach to defending as well as offering great flexibility with his ability to play in a range of positions. Having impressed both in training and in two outings so far in pre-season, Lee Sinnott moved swiftly to the Austin down stating:

"Observing Neil in training and the way he conducts himself is second to none. The attitude he displays is exactly what we are looking for & the influence he has had and will have on the other members of the team is first class."

We all join together in welcoming Neil to the football club.
