NEW SIGNING: Ethan Burnett

We’re delighted to confirm the signing of promising midfielder Ethan Burnett!

Ethan has been on trial with the Shots since the start of pre-season and has impressed in the centre of midfield.

He came through the Southampton Academy ranks before signing for Reading on a free transfer.

The 21-year-old spent time on loan with Havant and Waterlooville last season, making 24 appearances.

Tommy Widdrington is very pleased to add someone who has impressed him this summer: “Ethan has done very well since joining us both in training and in the games during pre-season.”

“He has very good pedigree having spent time at both Southampton and Reading and we feel he brings a slightly different skill set to the other central midfielders we have in the group.”

“He has a great engine, and times his arrival into advanced areas very well whilst also showing good game understanding. He’s another player I feel needs a platform to perform and he could go onwards and upwards but will certainly provide good competition for places at this time.”

Head of Recruitment Jamie Hedges says: “Ethan has been in with the group for a little while now and has shown he is more than capable of being in and around it.”

“He is a physical midfield player with a great engine who arrives in and around the box well to look to score goals, we look forward to developing Ethan further.”

Welcome to the Shots, Ethan!
