FORMER Football League striker, Ross Dyer, has signed for The Lambs...
The 27 year-old came through the ranks at Hednesford Town, where he went on to skipper The Pitmen before landing a move to Forest Green Rovers.
His next move took him to Mansfield Town in the summer of 2011 and he helped The Stags make a return to The Football League during the course of over 60 appearances.
After a loan spell with Hereford United, he linked up with Conference Premier outfit, FC Halifax Town 12 months ago and had further loan spells at Southport and AFC Telford United last term.
“I am absolutely buzzing to sign for Tamworth,” he said. “I’ve spoken to a number of local clubs, but coming here was a no-brainer for me.
“The Gaffer and Mike Fowler have such a clear vision of where they want to take this club. Everything is in place for us to move forward and coming here ticks every box for me.
“Andy Morrell is a similar type of player to me and I can only learn from him, whilst I know Mike from my Forest Green Rovers days and he is a great guy and a fantastic coach.
“There is so much potential here and from a personal point of view, it is important that I am enjoying my football again and getting regular games and goals under my belt.
“I know that I will do that here; this is a big club and there are some mouth-watering fixtures to look forward to in the season ahead.
“It’s a good League and it’s an exciting League with plenty of local derbies. As I say, I am buzzing and can’t wait to get started.”
