Meet The New Players

By Simon Ellis

Profiles for our two new signings Chris Shephard & River Allen

Chris Shephard - 30. Attacking midfielder joined the Yellows from Salisbury this summer after he had spent the previous two season at the Ray Mac Stadium. He began his career as part of the Exeter City youth set up in 2005 before eventually going on to make 19 first team appearances between 2008 and 2012 for the Grecians.

He joined Eastbourne Borough following his release from Exeter in 2012 and then joined Weymouth two years later before Steve Claridge bolstered his Salisbury front line with the signing of Shephard after they had narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier Division in 2017.

River Allen - 23. Skilful, classy midfielder River joined the Yellows initially in the summer of 2018 following his release from Truro City, after having impressed hugely during a short loan period in the previous season. He re-joined the White Tigers midway through last season before they again released him this summer.

He began his career at Plymouth Argyle when he was 12 and he made 3 first team appearances during 7 years at Home Park, which included loan spells at Gosport Borough and Truro, who he eventually signed for permanently in 2016. He has also played for Gateshead and Bodmin Town.
