Versatile player Jack Holmes has signed on for the forthcoming 2022-2023 season after impressing in pre-season so far.
Jack first signed for the club last pre-season from Slimbridge yet spent all of the 2021-2022 campaign injured and undergoing rehab with sports therapist Taylor Cornish.
After being invited back for pre-season, he has impressed throughout training and the games so far, including earning MOTM in the 4-0 win away to Bridgwater United on Tuesday evening.
On keeping Jack at the club, Manager Scott Bartlett said:
Jack was terribly unlucky with injuries last season but came in weekly throughout the season to rehab with Taylor at his own expense.
“I am delighted he is now fully fit and able to show everyone what a good player he is.
“Jack can play virtually anywhere so gives us some good options in that regard.
“There was a lot of competition for both players (Elis and Jack), but they have both recognised how well players are treated here and have showed a bit of loyalty to the club”.
I am really happy to have signed for this great club.
“From coming in last year and being injured was a difficult pill to swallow, especially being out for so long, but the gaffer, Lairdy and everyone else involved with the club made me welcome and at home straight away.
“Obviously knowing Scott from my time in the academy at Forest Green Rovers, he put his trust and faith in me and now that I’m playing under him again says a lot really, so I can’t thank him enough.
“I’m excited to get the season underway and really start to kick on with the team now”.
We are delighted that Jack has agreed to stay for the new season and wish him all the best going forward in a Weston shirt.
