Rugby Borough announce a trio of new signings as pre-season schedule confirmed

FOOTBALL: RUGBY Borough Football Club have signalled their intent to succeed in the club’s debut season following the announce of a trio of signings.

Jamie Tank, Joe Henderson, and Alex Webb have signed on the dotted line for the upcoming season which will see Rugby Borough compete in the Everards Leicestershire Senior League.

Tank, a former player at Walsall, Leamington and Rushden and Diamonds, will provide valuable experience to the team alongside 24-year-old Joe Henderson – a former product of Nuneaton Town and Coventry City.

Strachan Football Foundation graduate Alex Webb also joins to bring some youth into the team at the age of 18.

Borough manager Darran Tank said: “Youth has an important role to play at the club and we have used the link with the Strachan Football Foundation to sign Alex.”

Webb graduated from the Foundation after being part of the successful Rugby Town Juniors Youth team which won the Southern Premier League and reached the league cup final.

Tank added: “Alex is the future of the club.

“He has been tremendous in training and has an appetite to succeed.

“I will always look to give young players the opportunity to develop at this club.”

The game kicks off at 2pm with free admission.
