Third brother set for United

Western Daily Press - - Football -

EVE­SHAM United look set to sign striker Kane Simp­son fol­low­ing his de­par­ture from their fel­low South­ern League out­fit Frome.

The 22-year-old will be­come the third mem­ber of the Bris­tol­based Simp­son fam­ily to join the Ju­bilee Sta­dium club, with Cory and Kye al­ready part of boss Paul Col­li­cutt’s squad.

Kane has scored eight goals in 22 games for the Premier Divi­sion South club this term, hav­ing joined them from Man­gots­field.

He is one of eight sib­lings, six of whom are boys, five of them play­ing foot­ball at a good non­league level.

Troy, 30, is at Bris­tol Manor Farm, who beat Eve­sham 2-1 last Fri­day night, with Cory scor­ing Eve­sham’s goal.

Jamel, 29, plays for Hallen in the Tools­ta­tion Western League Premier Divi­sion, leav­ing Aaron, 37, who is the only brother who does not play.

Col­li­cutt had been keen to sign Kane in the sum­mer be­fore he joined Frome, but he has not got his man.

Frome last week signed front man Jor­dan Rogers fol­low­ing his de­par­ture from Tiver­ton.
