WESTON SNAP UP WINGER PEARCE

Former Fulham Academy and Forest Green Rovers winger Isaac Pearce has signed for The Seagulls.

The 20 year-old has penned a one-year contract in BS24 as he bolsters Scott Bartlett’s already-talented forward line.

Manager Scott Bartlett said:

We are delighted to bring Isaac to the club, he is a player that myself and Scott know well and is a good addition.

“Isaac is a talented boy with a fantastic attitude and is at a stage of his career where he needs to start fulfilling his potential.

“He has recognised that he needs to play regularly and he’s shown a real desire to come to the club.

“He’s an exciting, creative player that our supporters will like.”

Isaac said:

I’m excited to have signed for Weston-super-Mare AFC.

“After speaking to Scott Bartlett and Scott Laird I was impressed.

“The way they are going to play football suits my game and they both know me from our time at FGR.

“They made me feel like this is best for me to better my career and develop as a player.

“It is a great club with big ambitions and I’m looking forward to working with the players and staff.”
