Keates to Ladysmead

MIDFIELDER Ryan Keates has become the latest new recruit to the Yellows’ ranks.

Keates, 22, makes the short trip from Willand Rovers to join interim manager Richard Pears’ rapidly evolving squad that has already seen George Russell and Elliott Dugan sign for Tivvy recently. All three are in today's squad for the visit to Pitching In Southern League Premier South leaders Gosport Borough.

Ryan moved to Pitching In Southern League Division One South Willand in the summer after an impressive pre-season with the Devon All-Whites. He had previously played for Brixham AFC, where he was rated as one of the best players in the South West Peninsula League last season, and Lymington.

Prior to that, in August 2021, he joined then Southern Division One South side Barnstaple Town from Stoke Gabriel. He had re-joined Stoke Gabriel in February 2020 from Newton Abbot Spurs and was previously with South Devon League side Watcombe Wanderers.

Welcome aboard, Ryan.
