Merstham Football Club are delighted to welcome to The Whisky Bible Stadium, vastly experienced forward Delano Sam-Yorke.
Delano most notably featured for Woking, Basingstoke Town, Cambridge United, Lincoln City and Maidstone United. He will be in the match day squad for today’s season opener against Hornchurch FC.
Frank had this to say on the impressive capture of Delano Sam-Yorke:
“Firstly, I’ve enjoyed working with Del again, having coached him last season at Kingstonian. Like James Richmond and Chace Jacquart, Del is familiar to me from our time shared at K’s and I think those micro-relationships certainly help when you’re building a new team.
Funny story - I didn’t see eye-to-eye with Del when I started at K’s! More my fault than his admittedly.. It wasn’t anything major/significant - I think it was my weird banter that rubbed him up the wrong way during a training session! It was clear to see during my short spell at K’s that Del was a talented player but he also carries his vast experience well - what I mean by that, is he doesn’t let his past distract him from his present. He’s a focused player, he displays good habits in how he plays as a forward and I believe he will add exactly what we need in the dressing room / environment.
A bit of soul searching for Del meant he came in for a few sessions mid-way through pre season and then returned to us towards the back end but hes a professional and so he knows what needs to be done from now.
Del will be straight into Saturdays squad no question.”
Welcome to Merstham, Delano!
