Eagles Double Signing Joy

16th July, 2008

Arnold Town have been boosted by the signings of two new strikers.

Deon Meikle has joined the Eagles after spending some five years with Eastwood Town.

The 23-year-old has been a long term target of Arnold manager Andy Muldoon.

Martin Carruthers has also joined the Eagle Valley bound club.

The striker has league experience with numerous clubs including Aston Villa, Stoke City and Hull City.

The Nottingham-born forward was taken from Aston Villa to Stoke some 15 years ago for a fee of ?300,000.

The pair will be in competition for a starting place for the first game of the season at Nostell Miners Welfare on August 9th with last season's top scorers Chris Freestone and Craig Mitchell.

The duo have re-signed for the club after netting 28 goals between them during the last campaign.

Arnold began their pre season campaign with a 3-1 defeat at Truro City ? with veteran Bryn Gunn forced to play in goal following an injury to Lee Broster.

The club will start the season without a home as the stands at Gedling Road have now been demolished.

Construction at Eagle Valley is on target for the ground to be ready by September 22nd.
