ADAM Murry, who has recently joined the management of Bridgwater Town Football Club, promised signings to boost the Robins squad - and the first of those has now arrived.

Murry, a Dorset-based businessman who led the rescue of AFC Bournemouth after it was placed in administration and appointed Eddie Howe as manager in 2009, had been working behind the scenes at Fairfax Park for the last few weeks.

He is also involved with Yeovil United (the new name for Yeovil Town Women, the club he bought last year), who train at Bridgwater & Taunton College and are scheduled to play some of their home fixtures at Fairfax Park this season.

Murry said: “There is a lot of untapped potential [at Bridgwater] and I am delighted to be able to support the club going forward.

“It’s a great club with a loyal fan base that I hope will judge us on what we do for the club and the local area in the coming years.

“Working closely with Dave [Pearse] and Karl [Baggaley, co-managers], we have already started to strengthen the squad with strong additions with the likes of Tom Fry.

“Further signings will be announced within days; I am taking the view of promotion very seriously this season.

“Longer term we will look to produce a Bridgwater Town FC Academy based programme from Under-10s through to an Under-21 reserve team, and a community sports programme that the town can be proud of.”

The first new signing since Murry's involvement was announced is that of British Virgin Islands (BVI) international Jamie Wilson.

The 24-year-old made his BVI debut in October 2018 and has since gained three further international caps and scored one international goal.

His previous clubs include New Milton Town, Wolues FC (BVI National League), South Tampa FC (Suncoast Soccer League) and Bournemouth FC.

Wilson told the club website: “I’m really looking forward to getting started with the club.

"I have been very impressed with the professionalism of Bridgwater and their management.

"I have been fortunate enough to watch their recent performance in the FA Vase [when Bridgwater beat Welton Rovers 5-0] and knew I wanted to be a part of it."
