We are delighted to announce that Charlton Athletic midfielder James Vennings and former Colchester United Goalkeeper Callum Coulter have signed for the club!
Vennings, who is a midfielder by trade, joins the club from EFL League One side Charlton Athletic on loan and will be looking to add midfield options to Mark Molesley’s side ahead of our game today against Wrexham A.F.C. in the 2021/22 Vanarama National League.
Coulter meanwhile, has joined the club on a permanent deal and will look to continue his development with us as both players takes their place on the bench for our Matchday Squad this afternoon.
Starting with Vennings, the 20 year-old comes to The EBB Stadium, looking to make his mark on the squad having made four appearance for the Addicks in the 2019-20 season, with three of those coming in the Championship and one in the FA Cup.
The young midfielder was also previously captain of the Charlton u18s, making 27 appearances for the side proving himself as what the Charlton website describes as “a goalscoring midfielder”.
Comfortable as a ‘Number 10′, Vennings scored some crucial goals including the winner against Leeds United and a brace in a 6-0 thumping of Coventry City.
Vennings made the step up to Jason Euell’s development squad last season, featuring seven times too.
However, Coulter joins the club after a spell at League Two side Colchester United and will be looking to fight for a starting place against current Goalkeepers’ Mitch Walker and Ryan Hall.
The young shot-stopper joins similarly to Vennings, in a bid to get regular first-team football and in the hope of getting involved and making a mark at Vanarama National League football for the first time in their careers.
Our new players will wear the number 24 for Jennings and 31 for Coulter this season and will be involved in our game in the 2021/22 Vanarama National League against Wrexham A.F.C. today, with tickets available now!
Welcome to Aldershot Town James and Callum!
