The Magpies can confirm that they have finalised the transfer of not one, not two, but three on what is the Southern Combination Football League's Deadline Day. We are delighted to announce that Alfie Gritt, Adrian Todd and Ollie Moore (above, left to right) are now all Magpies.
Ollie is no stranger to Plaistow Road as he had a successful spell for the Club over the second half of the 2015/16 season and as such there will be many familiar faces to help him settle back in.
Alfie and Adrian have both transferred from Worthing United, and both are also well known to the Club. Adrian was part of our Academy side that secured the Sussex County U18 Cup in the 2014/15 season, whilst Alfie has caused our defence problems whether it be in the stripes of Worthing or those of East Preston.
Statement from Dave Cocoracchio, 1st Team Manager
"I am very pleased to announce the signings of Ollie, Alfie and Adrian. All three are excellent footballers and will add extra quality to what is already a very talented squad.
"All three players' aims, objectives and ethos mirror mine and The Club's and they will give us the ability to achieve our aspirations for the remaining six games of this season and then into the next.
"Ollie, who has played for Loxwood before, is an outstanding player who has attracted a lot of interest from other clubs. I think it speaks volumes for our club that he wants to come back and play his football here and I am delighted he has signed for us.
"Alfie is another high quality forward, who I have really admired over the past couple of years and who has a great goal-scoring record in this league. Following the recent signing of Tiago Andrade this now gives us what I believe can be one of the most prolific partnerships in the league.
"Adrian was a member of our high quality Under 18 Academy squad of two years ago and is a skilful, technically gifted wide player. It is great to have 'Toddy' back at the Club and he has a very bright future ahead of him.
"Ollie goes straight into our 16 man squad for tomorrow's visit of Arundel whilst both Alfie and Adrian will be available for selection for the following match. I would like to offer a warm welcome to all three players and wish them every success for the future with Loxwood Football Club."
