Hullbridge Sports yesterday announced the return to the club of forward Tony Martin, who was part of their Essex Senior League title-winning campaign.
Isthmian-watchers who don't necessarily follow Sports will perhaps still have seen Tony in our league. During 2017-18 and briefly during 2018-19 he played for Aveley, making twenty appearances, and prior to that was rather prolific for Tilbury, scoring eight goals in eighteen games during 2014-15, twenty two in forty three games the following season, and another six in twenty six during 2016-17.
He moved from the Dockers to VCD Athletic, where he got four in thirteen, and has also turned out for Great Wakering Rovers and, more recently, Redbridge.
Alongside Tony next season will be a collection of returning players from last season, Jamal Allen, Greg Frederick, Callum Thompson, Matt Rose, Alex Moss, Lewis Greene and Mike Agboola.
