Weston-super-Mare AFC are delighted to announce that winger Jay Murray has joined the club.
The 20-year-old, who becomes the Seagulls’ third signing this summer after spending the last two years with Clevedon Town, featured in Tuesday night’s 2-1 win over Exeter City, replacing Jordan Bastin as a 60th-minute substitute and putting in an admirable performance on the right wing.
Manager Scott Bartlett said:
Jay is a Weston boy and one we have monitored for a while.
“He’s a direct, old fashioned winger with lots of energy and we are pleased to bring him into our group”.
It’s a positive move for me moving up the leagues and I’m delighted to sign for the Seagulls.
“It’s onwards and upwards. The hard work proceeds now into a new environment and for my journey in a tougher league.
“I can’t wait to get started”.
During his youth days, Jay spent time in our Academy as well as playing local grassroots football.
He began his senior career at the age of 16, playing six games for Congresbury and 10 games for Cheddar Reserves during the 2017-2018 season in the Somerset County League.
He featured six times for Congresbury, scoring once, at the start of the 2018-2019 season before joining Western League Premier Division club Odd Down, making four appearances.
In January 2019, he joined fellow Western League Premier Division club Hengrove Athletic where he made six appearances for the Bristol club across the rest of the season.
He rejoined Odd Down in the summer of 2019, netting three goals in six appearances.
His early performances for Odd Down earned him a move to Western League Premier Division club Clevedon Town in August 2019, where he scored 18 goals and assisted 11 over 50 appearances for Mickey Bell’s side.
We would like to welcome Jay to the club and wish him all the best in a Seagulls shirt.
