Lewes FC is pleased to announce we’ve re-signed striker Billy Medlock and attacking midfielder Wilfried Grimaud.
Medlock appeared briefly for the Rooks under Simon Wormull, but has gone on to become one of the most feared forwards in the Isthmian League.
Medlock scored 28 goals in all competitions for Hastings United during the 2015/16 season, and was a thorn in the side of the Rooks when we secured a 2-1 victory at Hastings on August Bank Holiday Monday. The much-travelled striker has notched in the goals wherever he’s been, including Dorking Wanderers, Burgess Hill Town and Sutton Utd.
Darren Freeman is delighted to have finally signed the 25-year-old striker. “Billy’s signing brings competition for places,” said Darren. “We’re building a very good squad. Billy’s been someone I’ve tried to get for a couple of years. He brings experience and, most of all, he brings goals.”
The Rooks have also recaptured 25-year-old Wilfried Grimaud. Wilf made a big impact when he joined the Rooks last Spring and was just beginning to hit form when he suffered a serious injury in our victory at South Park. He’s been back in his homeland of France recovering from the injury, but is now ready to return to first-team action.
“Wilf brings a physical presence,” said Darren. “He came in last year and did very well for us. He’s been back in France working very hard to get back to full fitness and we’re pleased to have him back.”
Both Billy and Wilf will be available for selection tomorrow, when we visit fellow high-flyers Walton Casuals.
Going in the opposite direction is midfielder Reece Williams-Bowers. The young midfielder joined the Rooks in the summer, but has been released to continue his career at Bostik League rivals Molesey. We wish Reece all the best.
