Ahead of the forthcoming FA Cup trip to Hashtag United- and, of course, the Pitching In North Division season which starts a week later- Felixstowe and Walton United have strengthened their squad with the additions of Rhys Henry and Tyger Smalls.
Rhys is a returning player, having turned out for the Seasiders in 2018-19. He has also played for Cheshunt, Harlow, Thurrock, Lewes, AFC Sudbury, Bury Town, Maldon & Tiptree, Needham Market and- last season- Leiston.
Big things are promised of Tyger, who played for Saffron Walden Town and Haverhill Rovers last season. Aged just seventeen, he recently trialled with Arsenal, and has spent time in the youth system of their North London rivals Haringey Borough Tottenham Hotspur. He scored a fabulous free kick in yesterday's friendly win over Lowestoft Town.
