Carl Withers and Jamie McClurg are confident new signing, striker Callum Bunting, is just what Binfield need ahead of a historic 2021/22 season for the club.
The Moles begin their first season as a step 4 side in the Pitching In Isthmian League South Central Division One on Saturday 14th August, ironically against one of Bunting’s former clubs, Basingstoke Town.
Speaking to Football in Berkshire’s Dave Wright, Withers commented: “He is a typical No. 9 – big, strong and an aerial threat. He just wants to score goals and if you put balls into the right area for him, then he will score. We saw his tenacity and work rate off the ball in the Ascot game.
“He will be a real threat to opposing defences and will strengthen us this season going into a league where in certain games we will need that aerial presence.”
Bunting, who also numbers Slough Town, Chesham United and Uxbridge among his former clubs, played 33 times for the latter over the last two seasons scoring 12 times.
As well as Bunting, Binfield have added Billy Montague to compliment their forward line which includes Josh Helmore, Asa Povey, Ollie Harris and captain Sean Moore. One player absent from the Moles though is Wembley goalscorer Liam Ferdinand who has opted to join step 3 side Met Police.
