Marksman Davies back in Town ranks

THATCHAM TOWN have snatched back prolific marksman Ian Davies from Binfield in time for the start of their Hellenic League campaign at Kidlignton on Saturday.

But Davies - who made his Thatcham debut as a youngster in 2002 - will have to wait to take his second bow as he serves a two-match suspension.

But his signing boosts Town’s strike force, which also incldued summer arrivals Marcus Mealing and Josh Helmore as well as a number of other new arrivals and a few returning faces.

Thatcham went through pre-season unbeaten, but says co-manager Gareth Thomas: “Pre-season means absoutely nothing. But we know what we want to do and that’s be around the top six at Christmas and if we’re in touch, we’ll re-evaluate.”

Thatcham will also be without Yashwa Romeo and Chris Gerrard through suspension, and Thomas himself misses out with a knee injury that could keep him out for up to eight weeks.
