Former Colchester United trainee Callum Anderson agrees Mildenhall Town move after St Neots Town spell

Mildenhall Town manager Phil Weavers’ summer transfer business has continued with the addition of Callum Anderson.

It has been a busy off-season so far for Weavers, who has already recruited Ben Nolan, Jarid Robson, Olly Hughes, Jon Kaye and Lloyd Groves.

And the number of incomings is now up to six after an agreement was struck with former Colchester United trainee Anderson.

The midfielder, who includes Maldon & Tiptree and Haverhill Rovers on his list of former clubs, spent last season with St Neots Town, for whom he made 39 appearances.

Mildenhall boss Weavers said of his latest signing: “Callum is one we identified early on as someone we would love to bring to the club.

“He is your classic all-round midfielder who can do a bit of everything but to be a genuine leader at 22, it’s clear he’s got a bright future ahead of him.

“Very similar to a lot of lads his age, I think his reasons for coming here were finding that work/life balance between full-time work and being able to commit fully to his football, but I like to think he can see what we are doing here and he wants a piece of it too.

“That midfield area is so important and nine times out of 10 it’s where games are won and lost. With Ando’s ability, hopefully we can gain some control in that area which will give us the territory to kick on and win games football.

“I feel like I’m repeating myself over and over but I will say it again, Cal meets the criteria of player we are trying to bring to the club. He is another big coup for us and again, one I am genuinely genuinely proud of.”
