Falmouth Town are pleased to confirm the signing of forward, Oscar Massey.
Massey joins Town after short spells at SWPL side Penzance, having scored 6 from his opening 8 games for the Magpies and most recently Barnstaple where he bagged himself an impressive 9 goals in 10 games.
Prior to that Massey worked his way through the Plymouth Argyle youth system, making his professional debut before moving to League Two side, Swindon Town.
Massey becomes the second new forward to join Town, following the recent signing of Rubin Wilson.
“I chose to join Falmouth as I saw it as a big opportunity and stepping stone in my career to progress and improve. It’s a great club with a lot of history” Massey told falmouthtownafc.co.uk . “There is a great togetherness at this club on and off the field and i’m very excited to be involved in”.
When ask what strengths he would bring to the team? “I feel I’ll bring a threat in behind to the team along with goals, i will run at defenders and will be direct towards goal”. “I hope to get Falmouth as high as possible in the league and compete for as many trophies as possible, and looking forward to playing in front of the fans and their support is massive to this club”
“I have been disappointed to miss out on Oscar on a couple occasions this season and had to be patient.,” first-team manager Andrew Westgarth said. “We played Penzance in a friendly pre-season and he definitely caught my eye and I have keep tabs on him since. We have played Barnstaple 3 times in about a month so we have certainly seen enough of each other” “We have made a solid start to the season but if we want to successful we need competition and goals at the top end of the pitch. He fits the profile perfectly for us. A local lad, great age, an eye for goal. Hopefully he can continue where he left off at Penzance and Barnstaple and be a really success at Town”
Andrew Westgarth has provided an update on the latest injuries for Falmouth Town ahead of Saturday’s Toolstation Western League tie with Saltash.
Jack Webber has not been seen in a Town shirt since suffering an ankle injury in the Ambers 3-1 home defeat to Shepton Mallet back in mid October. “Webby’s [Jack Webber] injury has taken longer to heal than we first thought. What we hoped would only be a couple weeks, but has turned out to be over 3 months by the time he gets back on the pitch. He has responded well to treatment and we are hoping to see him back training by end of the year with a view to playing the start of January”
Last season young player of the year Kayden Gordon-Dunn has also picked up a serious knee injury whilst training. “Kayden, has had bad luck this season with injuries and unfortunately for everyone involved, it looks like he will be out for a while after damaging his knee ligaments”.
Unfortunately today’s league match away to St Blazey has fallen victim to the recent weather and has been called off. A new date will be arranged. The scale of the flooding at Blaise Park can be seen here.
