AFC Sudbury sign Wivenhoe Town skipper Tom Cutts

AFC SUDBURY have boosted their defensive options with the signing of Wivenhoe Town’s Tom Cutts.

The centre back joined The Dragons in 2009 as part of their under-18 side and has since made more than 100 first-team appearances for the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division club.

Cutts, 20, will be the latest arrival at the Ryman League Division One North club since the 7-2 defeat at Soham Town Rangers a fortnight ago.

Defender Ashley Sloots, who played 35 times for AFC Sudbury last season, has returned to the club.

The former Bury Town and Needham Market left back had been playing for Hadleigh United this season in the Premier Division of the Thurlow Nunn League.

Ben Bowditch, who made seven appearances and scored three times while on loan at AFC Sudbury earlier in the season, has also returned after a brief spell at AFC Hornchurch.

The new arrivals at the MEL Group Stadium have been offset by the departures of striker Danny Charge and defenders Bradley Thomas and Matt Pooley.
