Haverhill Rovers midfielder Josh Revell joins Ely City




Ely City have completed the signing of midfielder Josh Revell from fellow Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division side Haverhill Rovers.

The recently-turned 19-year-old joined Rovers in the summer after previous stints with the Ipswich Town academy and Step 4 outfit Bury Town.

He made 14 appearances for the New Croft-based outfit this term but has found himself on the fringes of late, and as a result he has now left to link up with Ely.

Robins boss Brady Stone said: "We played Haverhill a couple of weeks ago and got wind that he had not been playing recently.

"We put a seven-dayer in and he came training with us, seemed to really enjoy it and signed on.

"I am really happy with the signing. You could tell during training that he is going to bring that bit of calmness and quality on the ball in midfield that we have been lacking recently."

Revell is likely to make his Ely debut during Saturday's home encounter against FC Clacton (3pm).
