Frome Town FC are delighted to announce the signing of Jack Witcombe from Western League side Bradford Town.
The versatile 24-year-old, who can operate at right wing as well as right-back, swaps Trowbridge Road for Badgers Hill after two seasons in Bradford-on-Avon.
The Frome native won the Players' Player of the Season award in his first season with The Bobcats, following a move from Radstock Town in 2018
He also was part of the Bradford's table-topping team of last term, who were heading towards promotion prior to the curtailment of the 2019/20 season.
Manager Danny Greaves is delighted to have secured the highly recommended Witcombe and is already "pleased" with what he's seen in training.
He said: "I'm really happy to be able to announce Jack as our latest signing. He comes highly recommended and has shown a great desire to play for his home town club.
"It's an added bonus that he is a local lad as that is something we want to do more, but you have to be good enough, and we think Jack certainly is.
"He has been training with us since we started small group sessions in early July and hasn't missed a session in that time. He is a fit lad, meaning he can get up and down, and he can deliver a great ball from wide areas.
"He has impressed us so far and we now look forward to working with him as the pre season games begin."
Witcombe can't wait to get started at Badgers Hill and it is "excited" at the prospect of playing for his hometown club.
He said:"I am buzzing to have the chance to play for my home town club, with the ambition they have to progress.
"I feel I have made good progress on a personal level over the past few years moving from Radstock to Bradford.
"I am looking forward to the start of the new season and hopefully start where the lads finished the end of last season."
