Manager Lee Johnson has sent a special thank you to Playershare for allowing him money to sign Rhys Murphy on deadline day.Murphy, who joined the club from Dagenham & Redbridge, signed late last night with help from the Playershare scheme and Johnson is grateful for the support as without the input, the deal may not have happened.
He said: "It was great to be able to use the Playershare money to help bring in Rhys Murphy. There is no doubt the money helped us nudge the transfer over the line.
"The Playershare scheme has proved hugely popular this year with the signing of George Elokobi and hopefully the use of this money will be just as successful.
"Much appreciation goes to all those that contribute to the scheme."
Richard Attwood, Playershare chairman, said: "This latest signing shows even the smallest donation goes a long way to helping the club and the gaffer bring in players that may not have otherwise come to the club. When needed, Playershare will always assist Lee Johnson's requests.
"If any supporters are interested in Playershare, they can look on www.laticsplayershare.co.uk or contact me on 07720849866."
