Striker stays at the Reds for the 2019/20 campaign


The club can confirm that forward Declan Bacon has signed a new deal ahead of the 2019/20 season.

Dec made 11 starts last season for the Reds and ten substitute appearances, scoring four times including two outstanding strikes against Sutton Coldfield in the FA Cup.

Bacon had a spell on loan at Sheffield FC during the 2018/19 season where he gained valuable minutes and confidence as well as making a good impact before returning to the Reds towards the back end of the campaign, making a good impact with his electric pace and neat combination play.

Billy Heath will look for the forward to kick on after a season in the NLN and start to use his experience to find the back of the net frequently next season.

Billy Heath:

“Dec came to us having jumped up a few levels from where he was playing at and I thought he adapted really well to the level set in the National League North. He went on loan to Sheffield which was so important for him as he got confidence, scored goals and he returned to us full of that towards the end of the season.”

“He put in some great performances and we’re looking for him to kick on again, his attitude is great and he has bags of ability. All the players we have kept have the right attitude towards the game and that’s what we want as we look to kick on next season.”
