JAMIE Cade will go straight into the Horsham squad for their trip to Carshalton in the Ryman Premier tomorrow after signing today.
Cade, who played for Hastings in the thrilling 3-2 defeat to Horsham on Saturday has subsequently left the club. And Hornets boss John Maggs has capitalised on the turmoil at the Pilot Field outfit by snapping up the versatile striker.
Cade is a friend of Anthony Storey, also signed from Hastings earlier this season, and Maggs says he is getting excellent value for money by signing the ex Middlesbrough and Lewes man.
“I have been interested in Jamie since his time at Tonbridge Angels,” Maggs said. “But having already been in twice at Hastings (Storey and Lee Carey) I could not make any more approches.
“So because he has left Hastings, I have been able to pick him up. He can play out wide or up front, or even right back. For example, if we play three up front, he will be part of that three.”
Maggs does envisage Cade playing wide on the right, and says there is room for him in the playing budget. “We are getting really good value,” he remarked. “I am still working within the budget.”
