Weston’s No.1 Luke Purnell can’t wait to get back to The Optima Stadium and carry on where he left off.
Manager Scott Bartlett said:
Luke is an exceptional goalkeeper at this level and above.
“He is Weston through and through and loves the club.”
“As with any player, he needs pushing to maintain his high standards both physically and mentally.”
“We are delighted he will be working together with coach Steve Laker and our young academy keepers next season.”
I am really looking forward to this year, more so than ever.
“I have missed being with everyone at The Optima and am hopeful we will bounce back with a title-winning year.”
The long-serving keeper featured 29 appearances during the 2019/2020 campaign as he approaches 300 games for the Seagulls.
The Club would like to place on record its thanks to Ray Hancock for sponsoring Luke during the 2019-20 season.
We are delighted that Luke will be back between the sticks for the new season.
