Hednesford Town Football Club can today confirm a new arrival at Keys Park, although one player has also departed.
The Pitmen are pleased to welcome goalkeeper Jose Veiga to the football club as he takes up a player/goalkeeping coach role at Keys Park.
The 40-year-old has a wealth of experience having started his career in Portugal with Benfica in 1995 before arriving in England at Tamworth 11 years later. After playing for a host of Football League and non-league teams the Cape Verde international was most recently with Rushall Olympic.
Manager Neil Tooth said: “Jose will work closely with James Wren and the young goalkeepers at the club, and also push James by competing for the number one shirt.
“As well as being a very competent goalkeeper at this level Jose is also a fantastic goalkeeper coach – having worked with James when they were both at Tamworth.
“The goalkeeper position needs specialist coaching and Jose has bags of real experience that he can pass on and I’m really looking forward to working with him. He will be a valuable member of my staff as well as a key member of the playing squad.”
Departing the club is left-back Darren Campion who will not be returning next season due to a recent change in his work situation which would mean that he couldn’t commit to the time required for this level.
Tooth added: “Camps is gutted and it is a blow for our preparations, but he let me know at the earliest possible opportunity in order for us to get someone else in.
“I’ve told Camps that the door will always be open for him to a return should his situation change at all.”
Everyone at Keys Park wishes Campion all the best and once again thanks him for his efforts while with the club.
