Lichfield City FC received two welcome boosts this week with the arrival of one player and news that top-scorer, Jon Rob Dutton, was happy to commit his immediate future to the club.

Manager Dean Gilbert swooped to sign Simon Parsons from Burntwood Town FC and, after speaking to Dutton, was delighted that the City hot-shot was happy to stay at Brownsfield Park.

Gilbert explained:

“Simon is a very good signing and we’re over the moon with Jon Rob. We have a very young side and although Simon is young he is also experienced and can give us a bit of stability.

“We received three enquiries from teams for Jon Rob, including one from a very good Midland Alliance team who were offering good money. Thankfully though, after sitting down and speaking to him, Jon Rob has told me he has no desire to leave and is happy to continue playing for us. It’s a massive boost.”
