TWO new faces have been added to the first team squad ahead of tomorrow’s visit to Hereford – free agents Adam Henley & Will Tomlinson.
Adam is a full back with significant pedigree. A product of the Blackburn Rovers youth system, the 26-year-old made nearly 100 appearances for Rovers in the Premier League & Championship, as well as appearing twice for Wales in the lead up to Euro 2016. An 18-month spell with Real Salt Lake in Major League Soccer followed, before 27 games in League Two with Bradford City last season.
I’m really grateful to the manager for giving me the opportunity to get back on the pitch. I’m excited to be here and can’t wait to get started – Adam Henley
Will also came through the ranks at Ewood Park before spending the last couple of years in League Two with Mansfield Town. The 22-year-old midfielder appeared 35 times for the Stags, with his last game coming right before March’s lockdown, against Northampton Town.
I’m really happy to have signed with Chorley and I can’t wait to get back playing and start enjoying my football again – Will Tomlinson
Adam has been training with us for a few weeks and has shown great athleticism, improving fitness and a strong desire to be involved. Will is a midfielder with lots of energy and good quality. He’s determined to make an impact and without doubt brings added quality and another option to our squad.
Both players bring a lot of Football League experience and impressive references. I’m hoping they can help to raise our standards further as we continue to improve as a squad. – Jamie Vermiglio
