Stevenage Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Jamie Fielding from Hastings United...
The highly-touted young defender arrives following a stand-out season for the Arrows in which he won the club’s Young Player of the Year award.
“I am ecstatic,” Fielding said. “It is a great football club and it was an easy choice for me.
“It has been a great season for me progressing in men’s football but this is the next step for me now to establish myself in the Stevenage First Team.”
Chairman Phil Wallace said, "Jamie is a great example of our activity in the non league market. We knew he was being watched by a number of clubs at the end of last season and knew we would have to act quickly if we wanted to bring him to Stevenage.
"Jamie is one of three non-league lads we have targeted and tracked closely for early signings. We signed two, lost one and we are pleased with that outcome, given the competition.
"From June onwards it is mostly about waiting for the right senior lads. There is some activity, but most are away on holiday and the majority don’t start getting serious until mid-June. They are all paid until the end of July no matter whether they get a club or not, so many take a break and then look at their options during June, ready to join a new club for the start of training in early July. We know what we are looking for and are focused on improving the squad for next season."
