The dust has settled on the signings for the Beavers and the squad is taking shape, leaving Dowse pleased with the players he’s brought in. When you look at the squad as a whole, it looks good.
Dowse brought in Claudiu Vilcu and Charlie Wassmer to add some extra quality to the defenders currently with the club, Tom Jelley, Kieran Murphy, Josh Casey, Michael Kamara and Sam Gallagher, meaning that there’s plenty of options there to choose from.
Max Kretzschmar and Harry Crawford were added to the likes of Leon Solomon, Nathan Collier, Jerome Federico and Brendan Kiernan, although Crawford can fit in either outside or just behind the striker.
In addition to Crawford, Ryan Moss joined the squad, to give a bit of variety alongside Duncan Culley and Christian Jolley. Moss is a bit of a poacher in the box, and working alongside the bustling Culley, should give opposing defences some issues.
However, the one vital position that Dowse is still working on,...
The club are delighted to announce the signing of 26 year old central defender Charlie Wassmer.
Charlie has been out on loan this season from Maidenhead Utd, playing for Gosport Borough and Kingstonian but he originally came up through the Hayes & Yeading Utd youth team before breaking through into the starting squad in 2009.
Charlie then had a season at Crawley Town in 2011, before taking a permanent move to Cambridge Utd in 2013.
Later that year, he returned to Hayes & Yeading before moving to Margate in 2014 and then to York Road last summer.
