Melksham Town FC are pleased to announce the signing of midfielder, Jake Mawford from Weston Super Mare on loan. In the 2018-19 campaign, Mawford was at Gloucester City, making 40 appearances and scoring three goals. He has since made the move to return to Weston Super Mare where he has been described as being one of Weston's most popular players in recent years.
Jake commented, 'I am pleased to be joining Melksham so I can get some game time in my natural position further up the pitch. I look forward to working with Feyer again and a few of the players we won promotion with at Street! I am excited for Saturday's home game at the great facilities of the InfiLED Arena. Hopefully we can start climbing the table over the Christmas period.'
Rich Fey stated, 'I'm really excited in bringing Jake to Melksham Town. He is an excellent player and has played most of this season for WSM but in defence. He has played for me before and if we get his full potential out on the pitch, we have made a great signing! One thing I know is that the supporters will enjoy watching Jake. Jake will go straight into the squad for Saturday. '
