Newmarket Town sign Jack Chandler from Godmanchester Rovers

Newmarket Town player-manager Michael Shinn has bolstered his attacking options with the signing of Jack Chandler from fellow Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division side Godmanchester Rovers.

Since the start of the 2017/18 season, Chandler, who had a short stint with higher-league St Neots Town earlier this term, has scored almost 50 goals in a Rovers shirt.

Shinn said of his latest addition: "I have tried to sign Jack three times before so it is great to have finally got him.

"He guarantees you goals at the top end of the pitch. We are creating a lot of chances at the moment and while we are scoring a decent number goals and there are no concerns on that front, adding Jack just made sense.

"When you get the opportunity to improve your squad you have to take it – that is what we have done."
