Manager Danny Greaves was very pleased to comment,


“I am delighted to complete the signing of George Rigg from Chippenham Town, and would like to thank them for their assistance in getting it done quickly. To be able to sign a player of his pedigree and standing in the non-league game, but also to bring in a lad with clear outstanding ability, a great character and hunger to achieve something with us, is a massive coup for a club like ours.

We are always looking for players who can strengthen the group, and Riggy certainly does that for a number of reasons. You don't play for Bath, Weymouth and captain Chippenham on occasions, and play in well over 200 games at Conference South level, if you don't have that something a little bit special about you. We have been aware of him for some time, but was never really on our radar due to the gap in levels, but sometimes in life, circumstances just align. Whether that be family, work, or location, and that’s what has happened in this case. We clearly can’t compete with Chippenham financially, and the many other teams who made offers to Riggy in the last week, but everything else has aligned which means it is a good fit for everyone at this moment in time. I am delighted he has chosen Frome as his next move in his footballing journey, and having had numerous conversations with him, and after training with the group for the first time last night, I am sure he will fit straight in and will play a big part in what will be and exciting period for the club”.

We all welcome George to the club and can’t wait to see him in action.
