Redcar Athletic are absolutely delighted to capture the signature of renowned forward, Liam Jarvie.

Liam signs for the club following a poor start to the season, with his natural goal-scoring ability a hopeful remedy to some reoccurring downfalls.

The 29-year-old forward was the only player to outscore Donny Holdsworth last season, and thus brings welcome extra fire-power to Gary Forster’s roster.

Jarvie joins the club from Newton Aycliffe, where his 24 goals last season pioneered their title charge.

The forward played a vital role in clinching Aycliffe’s promotion to the Northern Premier League East, even netting the all important goal from the spot, to secure their place at the top of the league.

Excited for a new challenge, Liam expressed a desire to replicate his previous success here at Green Lane.

“I’m excited to get started with the lads,” Jarvie said.

“It’s great to be a part of this ambitious club.

“I really feel like the team can go on to achieve good things this season.”

Redcar’s fourth mid-season addition, Liam is a man Forster has long since admired, admitting he was a key target for the club amid early season woes.

“To get Liam over the line is a huge statement of intent from the club,” the gaffer said.

“He is someone I have admired from afar for the past few seasons.

“Our recent results have identified what we are lacking, and Liam was the player we spoke about that would improve us dramatically, if we could tempt him here.”

A forward of great esteem, Jarvie was a sought out man, so his signature means a great deal to Gary, and the direction of the football club.

“Once word got out that we may get him, a number of other clubs tried to gazump us.

“I think the fact that Liam chose us shows the dramatic Improvements the club has made in the past 12 months.

“Onwards and upwards, and up the Steelmen.”

Liam will make his Redcar Athletic debut at the weekend, as the Steelmen host Whitley Bay at Green Lane.

Kick-off will be at 3pm on Saturday 2nd September, and we’d love to see you there!
