Star striker Kieren Watson has left NCEL Division One side Hallam and joined Eastwood CFC.

The club are delighted to announce the signing of striker Kieren Watson from Hallam FC.
Watson scored thirty-five goals last season for Northern Counties East side Hallam FC helping them to a third-place finish in Division 1.
When asked about how the move happened, Watson said:
“I played with Jeppo a few years back at Hucknall when they were in the Evo-Stik and we’ve remained good friends ever since.
“We’ve spoken about playing for him at a couple of other clubs he’s managed but distance wise it’s never really worked out. Now he’s at Eastwood CFC and we can get a full pre-season under the belt it feels like the perfect fit.”
Watson on Eastwood CFC:
“From what I’ve seen so far I’m massively impressed. I was shown round the ground and facilities the other day and it looks great. I can’t wait to get started”.
When asked about his aims for next season, Watson said:
“Hopefully with 4 teams going up, you’d want promotion as a minimum”.
“I’ve not seen much of this league so it’s difficult to say but I hear there are some good players at Eastwood so fingers crossed we could push to win it.”
