New Striker Signs on the Dotted Line at Keys Park

Hednesford Town Football Club are pleased to confirm that Gurjit Singh has today agreed a one-year deal with the Pitmen.

The striker, who has spent the last 14 months with Kidderminster Harriers, has been a consistent goalscorer over the course of his career.

Harriers signed the 25-year-old after he impressed for West Midlands League side Smethwick Rangers, scoring 21 goals in 25 games, before notching 13 goals in 14 games for Tipton Town between January 2015 and the end of the season.

This alerted Kidderminster to his talents – with him going on to score four times from 11 starts last season in the National League.

Liam McDonald admitted he was pleased to land the striker after he gained interest from sides in the National league set-up.

He said: “I’m really excited to be able to bring him to the club, I think he will be a player that really puts bums on seats.

“He has pace, can play off both feet, finishes really well and is also very powerful. His potential is going to be a huge asset for us.

“There have been a number of clubs chasing him from higher up the leagues and we are delighted to get him here.

“Although he may not be a name that drops off the lips of supporters he is a very good player and I feel one of the best strikers around.”

Singh is due to represent Panjab at the CONIFA World Championships in Russia later this month as his reputation continues to grow.

The striker stated that he was looking forward to the new challenge that lay ahead for both him and the Pitmen.

He said: “I’m just really happy to have joined the club. A big factor is that Liam McDonald is at the club and that was a huge influence for me having met with him in order to see where he wants to go.

“I rejected offers from the league above in order to come to the club.

“I know that this league is a really competitive one. There are a lot of tough teams in the league but I’m looking forward to the challenge that lies ahead.”
