Portuguese Centre Forward Evangelino Mendes Valentim has signed for the Lambs after a number of weeks having a trial and gaining match fitness. The 26 year old will certainly add some steel to the forward line but until the club receives his international clearance from Portugal he will have to stay on the sidelines.
Evangelino is based in London and will need to find 'digs' close to tamworth especially if he stakes a regular first team place. Also the club has placed promising youngsters Troy wallen and Rico Taylor on two year contract deals with another years option. the lads will be loaned out soon so that they can get regular first team football and gain the experience which will put them in good stead when Marcus recalls them back into his squad. Also it is the clubs intention to place Will Grocott on a two year deal before the window closes.
