Billy Kee Signs For Non-League Coalville Town
Coalville Town Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of striker Billy Kee who last week left Sky Bet League One side Accrington Stanley due to personal reasons.
Kee, has spent his whole career in professional football with Leicester City, Burton Albion, Torquay United and most recently Accrington Stanley helping them achieve Sky Bet league One status. He has recently had six months out of football for personal reasons before mutually agreeing to cancel his Accrington contract last week.
Speaking about the signing Chairman Glyn Rennocks said, ‘When someone of Billy’s calibre becomes available on our doorstep you have to do everything you can to get him on board. Since we met last week its been a pleasure to deal with him and we are delighted he’s chosen us over a host of big names in non-league.
Being a Leicester based lad our location suits him perfectly, he can now balance working full time whilst playing part time football. I would like to thank everyone behind the scenes who has helped get this deal over the line.’
Manager Adam Stevens added ‘I am delighted to get Billy back on the football pitch again, my type of player whose experience, ability and know how will be invaluable to us in the run in. To choose us is a massive coup for the vlub and local area. I’m sure Billy and family will fit in with our family club ethos and enjoy his football again.’
Billy Kee goes straight into Tuesdays squad to face Needham Market at home after already training with the squad on Thursday & Saturday this past week.
