Swifts sign Regent midfielder

Topley heads from Premier to North

Heybridge Swifts have announced the signing of Brightlingsea Regent midfielder Adam Topley.

Adam came through the youth system at Concord Rangers, and as well as playing for the Beachboys he spent time on loan with Canvey Island and Aveley, playing four times for the Millers and eight times for the Gulls.

He moved on to East Thurrock United in the summer of 2019, but had little luck with injuries, playing only once at Step Three before spending some time with Tilbury, for whom he played eight times. He moved to the Taydal in the summer, and has been an ever-present in the Rangers midfield, playing twelve times- the last time just before the current lockdown, when he was part of the side who lost narrowly at Enfield Town.

Swifts Assistant Manager Michael Pulford, as quoted by the club on social media, welcomed his new arrival:

“Adam is someone we’ve watched closely for a few years now and fits in brilliantly to the ethos of the squad we’re building here at Swifts. We’d like to thank Brightlingsea Regent and Tommy Austin for their assistance in the move.”
