The next addition to the squad comes in the goalkeeping department with Charlie Jones becoming the latest player to promise to commit to joining Dunstable Town for the coming season.
Charlie has made appearances at clubs such as Leighton Town, Welwyn Garden City, and Newport Pagnell Town. The majority of Charlie's career appearances have been for Winslow United where last season he played 43 games for the club and picked up the Supporter's Player of the Season award in the process.
Here is what Dunstable Town Head Coach, Joe Deeney, had to say about Charlie:
"I am delighted Charlie has agreed to sign for us. I have known about Charlie for some time. His distribution is outstanding as well as his communication, shot stopping and command of his area. Charlie’s addition will allow us to make some adjustments to the way we defend. Having met with Charlie he has an incredible self-belief, confidence and a big personality which shines through straight away. Charlie is an excellent addition for us and I’m really looking forward to working with him."
This move brings strong competition for the number 1 spot next season with Connor Coulson also agreeing to join the Blues, speaking on this Joe had this to say:
"I felt it was critical to ensure we had 2 outstanding Goalkeepers at the level ready for next season. The schedule is intense and to have only 1 GK for next season I feel is a huge risk. Too often as managers, we are reactive when a GK gets injured, suspended or unavailable and are rushing around trying to find an emergency option. Both Charlie and Connor bring very different attributes and most Importantly are both excellent characters. I know that both will push and help each other which is imperative. We are going to have depth and strength at every position next season starting with our Goalkeepers. I am delighted to have both Connor and Charlie joining us. Welcome to the Dunstable army."
