Grantham Town sign midfielder Troke from Eastwood

Have your say

The Gingerbreads have officially signed midfielder Alex Troke from fellow Evo-Stik Northern Premier side Eastwood Town.

Troke was under contract at Eastwood, but wanted to get away. Grantham joint manager Jimmy Albans said. “We knew he wanted to join us at Grantham and when the chance came when he was able to get out of his contract with the Badgers, we had no hesitation moving for him.”

Despite his age, 19-year-old Troke brings with him experience not only of this level, but of the next one up as well, having been with the Badgers for a number of years. Having trained with Grantham this week, Albans was impressed with what he has seen:

“He has a big future in football, that’s for sure. He already has a lot of experience and is a proven goalscoring attacking midfielder.”
