Bermuda midfield duo sign for Rams
Premier Division champions North Village have pulled off a double transfer coup by snapping up Bermuda internationals Lashun Dill and Jason Davis.
Dill, aged 31, is well known to Village coach Shaun Goater from their time together with Bermuda Hogges, and joins from cross-town neighbours Dandy Town.
Davis, aged 26, has signed from Boulevard and will crank up competition for places in Villages already well-stoked midfield, which includes skipper Sammy DeGraff, Jemeiko Jennings and Keishen Bean.
Dill, a pacey winger, and the versatile Davis will join up with the rest of Villages squad when they reconvene for pre-season training later this month.
Village coach Goater is confident the pair of signings will help the Bernard Park outfit capture more –silverware this coming –season an ominous sign for their title rivals.
Weve brought in Lashun Dill and Jason Davies, both good players who wanted to come to the club, he said.
From my point of view, its important to bring in players who are equal in quality, if not better than what we already have.
Both players should help us sustain our consistency and improve our competition for places thats what were trying to create.
Obviously we will be looking to win some more trophies and to push on again this season.
Goater expects to experience a few selection headaches this campaign considering the embarrassment of riches at his disposal, but welcomes the challenge of keeping his formidable squad happy.
Every coach wants competition for place and Im sure myself, Steve Coddington and Woolley Baxter will have some tough choices to make, said Goater.
We expect to be the team to beat once again this season, but thats always the way with Village, he said. We know other teams will be vying to beat us, and we know who our main rivals are.
Last season saw Village land the Premier Division title to qualify for the CFU Caribbean Club Championship for the time.
The Rams also won the Dudley Eve Trophy and the Friendship Trophy. Since taking over the reins at Bernard Park, Goater has captured five trophies.
