In a look towards next season and the future development of the team, we are delighted to announce that Luke Medley has signed for the Wands on contract.
Luke came to Cray in January from Chatham Town and has made a strong impact in his opening few weeks with Cray scoring seven goals including a hat-trick at South Park on 8th February.
Luke, a former Youth player with Tottenham Hotspur has Football League experience with Bradford City where he scored with his first touch after coming on as a substitute in a 2-1 win against Wrexham in August 2007 and played nine times for the Bantams before moving to Barnet the following year. He played 19 times over the next couple of years for the Bees. He later went into non-league football with Mansfield Town, Kidderminster Harriers and a brief spell with Bromley in 2012. After a short spell at Margate he came to Walton Casuals where he scored 22 goals in 65 games between 2014-2016. He signed for Chatham at the start of this season and scored 15 goals prior to coming to Cray.
This is good news for Cray as Tony Russell looks to build a side that can challenge in what is a very strong Ryman South and getting someone of Luke’s calibre on contract is just a start of those ambitions.
