With three important players secured this week, we are now delighted to announce a new addition to next season’s squad as we give a warm welcome to striker Jared Lewington who has joined us from Tiverton Town.

The 26 year old forward is Town’s first new signing of the close season. He progressed from playing for Bovey Tracey and Buckland Athletic to joining Tiverton in November 2017 before switching to Truro City for the following season. He returned to Tiverton for 2019/20 until the chance of full-time football arrived in November 2019 when he signed for National League Torquay United, but he departed Plainmoor last summer and linked up with Tiverton for a third time.

Jared told tauntontown.com:” I’m extremely happy to get the opportunity to play at a great club with a lot of ambition and which has excellent facilities, a very good squad, great management and a terrific fan base. I know a few of the lads which has helped, and everyone has made me feel very welcome.

“Everything from on the pitch to behind the scenes to the fans is excellent here and you can see how passionate the fans are for the club and wanting it to progress which is a big reason why I wanted to join. I can’t wait to get started after what has been a horrible couple of seasons so hopefully we can have everyone back in the ground watching us very soon and aim for getting promotion.”

Head of Football Rob Dray added:” Getting the best strikers in the area is never easy for a variety of reasons but what we have with Jared is a fantastic signing. He is proven at this level and above, strong, a great lad and a tireless worker, and ticks all the boxes for us as a club going forward.”

Welcome to the club Jared!
