Binfield bolster striking options ahead of FA Cup

Binfield have added experienced Hellenic League goalscorer Josh Helmore to their squad.

The Moles have won both their Premier Division fixtures so far and face US Portsmouth at Hill Farm Lane in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Helmore scored 12 goals in 24 games for Thatcham Town as they lifted the Hellenic Premier title and FA Vase in 2017/18 and briefly had a spell with Bracknell Town last season before returning to the Kingfishers.

A tweet from Binfield confirmed the move: “Ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup game we are pleased to announce the signing of Josh Helmore. The ex Thatcham Town and Bracknell Town forward goes straight into the squad.”

The striker bolsters manager Roger Herridge’s forward options with impressive youngster Eddie Lee leading the line on Tuesday alongside new signing Asa Povey in the absence of the injured Sean Moore.

Helmore is another eye catching signing for Herridge who has already added Carl Davies and Jamie McClurg to his squad.
