Welsh move for Wes
Former striker Wes Fletcher, who spent last season in Scotland with Motherwell, has today moved to the Welsh Premier League having signed a two year contract with The New Saints.
Wes only played twice in our first team, both appearances coming as a substitute in the League Cup, but remained with the Clarets until the end of the 2012/13 season. By then he’d spent time out on loan with Grimsby, Stockport, Accrington, Crewe and Yeovil, all of whom were league clubs at the time.
He signed for York on leaving us and was their leading goalscorer in his first season but suffered a serious injury at Portsmouth in March in a challenge with Ben Chorley was given a straight red card by referee Roger East. It ended his season but he came back and was one of York’s better players in the following season.
Last summer he moved to Motherwell, scoring the winner on the opening day of the season at Inverness, but it was a season beset with injuries and he made only five starts and that goal was his only goal for them.
He’s been looking for a club since and today signed a two year contract with TNS and he’ll join a side who have not been struggling to score goals this season. They beat Aberystwyth 2-1 in their opening game but have enjoyed big wins since, beating Llandudno 5-0 away and following that up with a 10-0 home win against Rhyl.
Fletcher, who I always thought had potential to be a decent Football League striker, could make his debut tomorrow night when his side travel to play Cardiff Metropolitan.Follow UpTheClarets:
