PAT Rayment is looking forward to working with Scott Musgrove again after sealing a deal to bring him to Spalding United.
The Tulips boss had the midfielder in his ranks when he was in charge of Deeping Rangers – and once he became available, he didn’t hesitate to make a move.
Expected to deliver goals and creativity from central midfield, Rayment rates Musgrove – who was linked with a return to UCL Premier Division rivals Peterborough Northern Star before inking terms at the Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field – as a massive signing.
He said: “Scott is very energetic and gets himself around the pitch very well. He played for me at Deeping and showed flashes of what he’s all about.
“He’s been away working in London but is back in the area now. I think he’s matured a lot and once I knew he was available I didn’t hesitate to make a move for him.
“Lots of other teams were keen. He’s a very, very good player and is just what we’ve been missing. I think Scott will be a massive signing for us.
“It’s important to have competition for places and we certainly have that in midfield now.”
Rayment told the Lincolnshire Free Press that Musgrove is a certain starter in tomorrow’s (Saturday) final pre-season clash with King’s Lynn Town at the Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field (3pm).
But he’s warned his squad that there will be some exits next week, as the Tulips prepare for their competitive opener in the FA Cup against Blaby and Whetstone next Saturday.
More on that in next week’s Free Press.
