We’re delighted to announce the permanent signing of Republic of Ireland Under 21 international, Simon Power.
The 22-year-old winger signs from Norwich City, having previously spent time on loan at Dutch side Dordrecht, Ross County and most recently Kings Lynn Town.
A direct and skilful footballer, Power became a popular figure at Kings Lynn during his two loan spells, and scored twice in 11 appearances for The Linnets this season.
Power becomes Weaver’s sixth addition of the January transfer window and will wear number 30.
Here’s what the Gaffer had to say on our latest addition…
“We’ve liked Simon for a while now, we knew about his last Summer at Norwich and he’s gone and nailed it with his performances at Kings Lynn out on the right left, or up front.
“He’s a real pacy player who is very direct in his style and I think he will excite the supporters.”
We also caught up with Power himself, discussing what our new man hopes to bring to the side and how playing in Ireland, Holland, Scotland and now England has aided his development.
Power is available for selection against Exeter City on Tuesday 19th January.
