Whyteleafe Secure Two New Signings
Whyteleafe Football Club are delighted to announce the double signing of Andre McCollin from Burgess Hill Town and Laurent Mendy from Greenwich Borough.
Andre has played for a number of Bostik League clubs including Merstham, Kingstonian and Haringey Borough and will bolster the teams attacking options. Laurent is a calm and composed centre midfielder who was most recently at Bostik South side Greenwich Borough FC.
McCollin, who played in League One for Yeovil Town during the 2009/2010 season explained his decision to move to Whyteleafe, “As soon as I heard Whyteleafe were interested I wanted to come here and really help in the clubs promotion push.”
He went on to say, “I am hard working and never give up and hope that I can become an asset to the team by scoring goals and being a team player.”
“My ambitions are to be as fit and as focused as possible for the remainder of the season. I can see the quality of the players that are already present at the club and also the signing of Laurent and can already tell that we will be a team that’s hard to beat. I’m looking forward to the remainder of the season.”
Whyteleafe manager, Harry Hudson stated “I am happy that both players have decided to come and be part of this hardworking group of players. Andre and Laurent are exceptionally experienced players and they will add quality to the squad.”
Andre is a natural finisher and he has been lethal in front of goal for last couple of years and I think he will settle in really well with the squad. Laurent will bring a professional approach to the group and is the type of guy who will also settle in quickly. As a club we are extremely pleased with getting these two players through the door and me and the rest of my coaching team will look forward to working with both of them.”
Former Greenwich Borough man, Laurent Mendy, was quoted saying. “When I came to Church Road earlier in the season with Greenwich Borough the fans here were excellent and Whyteleafe as a team were so confident and I could just feel a positive buzz around the place and when Whyteleafe made contact I knew straight away that I wanted to be apart of it. You could see it was clear from the players and staff that everybody believes Whyteleafe have the potential to finish the remainder of the season in style.”
Mendy continued “From looking at the signings the club has made already with the likes of Andre and the experience he brings with him as well as the talented players that are already at the club its clear to see the club are pushing for promotion.”
Both signings are hopeful to be available for Whyteleafe this afternoon as Whyteleafe travel to Hastings United in the Bostik South East. Kick Off: 3,00pm at Pilot Field.
