A small group of Angels supporters have put up the necessary money to finance striker Tom Derry (24) from National South East Thurrock Utd for the remainder of this season.
Previous to his spell with the Rocks, Tom has represented Leatherhead, Kingstonian, Hayes & Yeading and Aldershot with his footballing career starting with Gillingham U18s.
Angels boss Steve McKimm said today: “I am tremendously grateful for this superb gesture from our fans. It really does show what a terrific club we have here when ordinary supporters can put their hands in their pockets to this extent. In return we are getting a proven striker and if proof were needed many will remember his goal against us in the final game of last season here when he was playing for Leatherhead.”
Tom will take his place in the squad for the 1st team fixture away at Wingate & Finchley tomorrow (Wednesday 13th February) with a 7:45pm kick off.
You can watch Tom scoring against us for Leatherhead on the last day of last season - it’s about 8 minutes in, and you can also see D’Sean involved. Please click or touch here to watch Trevor’s highlights.
