Cray Wanderers are pleased to announce the re-signing of defender Nathan Fox to the club. Nathan who played twelve league and cup games for the Wands last season, left in January 2016 to join Brentford where he played in their Development team.
Nathan, 20 came through the youth ranks at Norwich City and joined the Canaries when he was an Under-13 player having previously been on the books of hometown club Chelmsford City. He completed a two-year scholarship with the East Anglia side but left at the end of 2014-15 season, just before his 19th birthday. He started 2015-16 at Concord Rangers but Tony Russell never afraid to give youngsters a chance brought him to Cray in November 2015 and made a promising debut in the Kent Senior Cup tie with Charlton Athletic at Hayes Lane. Fitting in straight away alongside Ben Payne following the long term injury to Lewis Tozer his mature displays helped Cray reach the top of the Ryman North at Christmas 2015 and was a threat at set pieces scoring twice against Romford and Maldon & Tiptree.
He joined Brentford following a trial in January 2016 but unfortunately got injured early in his time at Griffin Park. He did spend a month’s youth loan at National League South Margate between December and January last year.
We wish Nathan well back at familiar surroundings at Cray Wanderers and we are sure he will prove a useful addition to the team.
