Former Young Lion Goes South
Former academy winger Jamie Ward has found himself a new club having been released by Villa earlier this year. 20 year old Ward has signed for Torquay, their second signing of the summer break.
Deemed I guess to be 'not good enough,' he was released on a free and has now found a new life beside the seaside, beside the sea.
Ward has signed a 3-year contract and was clearly pleased that he now has a chance at first team football:
'I believe I can do a good job for the club and that it can help my career.'
Ward had been chased by all sorts of clubs around the lower leagues, and had been expected mostly at Stockport, with whom he spent the last 2 months of last season on loan.
