Mousehole AFC are delighted to announce the first summer addition to their squad with the signing of 6’4” attacking midfielder Reece Thomson.

The 22-year old scored 15 goals last season for fellow Western League Premier team Saltash United, including the winning goal that knocked Mousehole out of the Senior Cup at Trungle Parc.  He has previously been on the books of Plymouth Argyle, and recently made a highly impressive debut for Cornwall FA versus Devon.

Mousehole enjoyed a promising league campaign in their first season after promotion – to the highest level in the club’s history – finishing just four points short of a promotion place.  Significantly, the wheels are already in motion to strengthen the squad with further additions expected before Mousehole return for pre-season training at the end of the month.

Manager Jake Ash is enthusiastic about the new arrival: 

“As soon as we met Reece, it was obvious he was a brilliant fit for us and what we do.  He has a real focus and hunger to push himself in every way he can to become the very best version of himself – and that really excites us.  He made a huge effort to come down for our presentation evening to meet everyone, and I know the existing players and all the coaching team are really excited to work with such a great young player and person.”

Reflecting on his early preparations for the forthcoming season, the Manager added:

“We are really pleased to have retained everyone from last season, despite lots of interest from other clubs. That didn’t come as any surprise after the season the team had, but it’s really great to know that the players buy so much into what the club is about that they can turn down some very lucrative offers.”

 “Although we came really close last season to promotion, we still want to bring in two or three more to help push us on again and we are so delighted that Reece has agreed to be the first of those.”
