Lowestoft Town sign Leiston striker Nathan Stone

LEISTON striker Nathan Stone has signed for Ryman League Premier Division Lowestoft Town.

The 27-year-old has signed a two-and-a-half year contract with the Trawlerboys, and could be available for Saturday’s home match against Tooting and Mitcham if the paperwork is completed in time.

Stone, who was given permission by Leiston to speak to Lowestoft after an initial approach was rejected, agreed a deal after meeting club officials this afternoon and will train with his new team-mates tonight.

Although he is cup-tied for both the Alan Boon Cup and the Suffolk Premier Cup, Stone will be hoping to help Lowestoft secure promotion to Blue Square South.

The former Kirkley & Pakefield player joined Needham Market following their promotion from the Ridgeons League to Ryman League Division One North last season, before switching to Leiston when they moved up into the same division this season to cut down on the travelling from his Oulton Broad base.

Stone leaves Leiston while they are top of Ryman League Division One North and aiming to win promotion to the Premier Division at the first attempt.
