Byron Lawrence and Robert Eagle pen new deals while Nigel Ling joins the club as Goalkeeping Coach

Byron Lawrence and Robert Eagle have agreed terms for next season after negotiating new deals during the week.

Byron Lawrence joined the club under Glen Driver and Tony Kinsella in the Summer of 2016, and to date has made 110 league appearances netting 16 goals. Overall, Byron has played 142 matches for the Blues scoring on 22 occasions.

Robert Eagle has also signed for the new campaign. Robert joined Leiston for the start of the 2017/2018 season and has played 37 league matches to date scoring twice. In total, Robert has made 49 appearances, finding the net three times.

Manager Stuart Boardley said during the week: - ‘I am delighted that Byron and Robert have agreed to play their football with us next season. Rob will offer us great experience and know-how in the midfield area and Byron is without doubt one of the most talented players in non league football so to have them here next campaign is a great boost to the club.’

Nigel Ling has also joined from the Ipswich Town Academy having been Goalkeeping Coach for them for the past 10 seasons. On this appointment, Boardley said: - ‘We are pleased to attract a Goalkeeping Coach such as Nigel to the club. His calibre and experience is a real coup and we look forward to working with him next season.’

Everyone at the club looks forward to seeing Byron and Robert in a Blues shirt again next season and welcome Nigel to the club.
