East End Tigers on Wednesday unveiled their new signing from FC Buck Philip Neville on a long term contract.
Neville, who can also play as midfielder, expressed his delight to sign for the Premier League club.
“I’m happy and looking forward to helping the club. I want to take this opportunity to thank FC Buck for introducing me to the game at this level”
“I want to thank them a lot for the exposure, and hopefully I can take that experience to my new club.”
Tigers Chairman Victor Lewis said that the club has been watching Neville since his days at Buck FC.
“We have been monitoring the striker whom we considered a vital player, but kept it quiet because we were waiting for this day”
“We wanted him, but we were scared of the clubs with bigger financial powers. So we tried to do the deal quietly and succeeded,” Chairman Lewis noted.
“Philip will do well in the upcoming league,” he added. We welcome Philip to the family, and we want to thank FC Buck for cooperating with us”.
Neville is expected to deliver in the 2019/2020 season just as Baimba Sesay in the last campaign with 14 goals.
