Chris Lait returns to Stratford Town
STRATFORD Town have bolstered their attack ahead of the Bank Holiday fixtures with the acquisition of a familiar face.
Chris Lait was part of the promotion-winning team under Carl Adams in 2013 and has returned to the Arden Garages Stadium to add more firepower in time for Saturday's away trip to Kings Langley and Monday's home game against Bromsgrove Sporting.
Lait, who lists Birmingham City, Telford, Tamworth, Solihull Moors and more recently Nuneaton Borough as former clubs, said: "I’ve had a good relationship with Jed (McCrory – chairman) for many years from the time when I played for him after leaving Stratford.
"I’ve thought about returning for a while and have kept in touch but this time if feels right.”
He added: "The place looks and feels very different. The facilities and the stadium have been completely transformed, this is a great place to be right now.
"There’s a great atmosphere at the club and you can see that tonight after training, as the bar was packed and all the lads were getting on great. I can’t wait to get started.”
McCrory thanked Nuneaton for waiving the seven days' notice and was delighted to acquire the services of Lait, who'd attracted interest from elsewhere.
"I’ve been a big fan of Chris," he said. "I’ve known him for about 12 years from when he came out of Birmingham City.
"He’s a very talented winger he’s great fun and will be perfect in the changing room. He knows a lot of the lads already and knows the club having been here previously.”
"He likes to go at people and he has a big goal in him as he’s proven at previous clubs, especially in the FA Cup.”
