Ites Sign Callum Wraight

Sheppey United are pleased to announce that young centre-back Callum Wraight will be playing at the Havill Stadium | Holm Park next season.

We caught up with Callum and here’s what the former Folkestone Invicta defender had to say:

Welcome to Sheppey United Football Club – Talk us through how the talks and move happened.
I was contacted by Nick asking what I was doing this season. I had taken a season off due to the birth of my son and moving home, so I was keen to get back into the game.
After a brief conversation I was invited to meet with Nick and Ernie for a more indept talk and to look at the facilities. We met Wednesday night and I was impressed with what I saw and what we discussed, about the vision of the club going forward, and I was happy to sign!

How would you describe your own game?
I feel I read the game well, I am strong in the tackle and a strong left footed centre half/left back.

How much do you know about Sheppey United?
Through playing against Sheppey United in previous years, I know it’s a good set up.

What makes the club appealing to you?
The ambition of this club going forward, the strong fan base and the management and coaching staff.

Do you know anyone from the current squad?
I currently don’t know any of the squad but look forward to meeting them.
What are your biggest aims for your time with Sheppey?
To gain promotion!

Finally, what is your message to SUFC supporters?
I’m really looking forward to playing in front of the fans and hope we have a good season together.

 

Manager Ernie Batten said: “Callum really raises the quality of the squad and brings the perfect mentality to our dressing room. We have signed a fantastic player!”
