King signs exciting young talent Nanetti from Harrow Borough

Steve King has added to his Lewes FC squad the “young and exciting talent” that today’s Sussex Express had reported he was hoping to snap up.

Rooks has captured 19-year-old Christian Nanetti from fellow Ryman League Premier Division side, Harrow Borough.

The signing was completed after we went to press yesterday lunchtime.

A former youth player at Premier League side QPR, Italian-born Nanetti is described on the club website as being: “comfortable on the wing or playing just off the front line.”

Lewes FC online continues: “Following his departure from Loftus Road he joined Raith Rovers on a short term deal before a short spell at Ashford Town (Middx) FC where he attracted much attention from league clubs without managing to secure a deal.”

King said: “Christian is an exciting player with excellent technical ability, I am sure the Lewes fans will like what they see. He is an attacking player who has the ability to open up defences, and I know he will bring a fresh attacking dimension to our squad.”

Nanetti is eligible to make his debut against Hendon in the Ryman Premier, a match which has been switched to Sunday due to Hendon’s landlords Wembley being in FA Cup action at home on the previous day.
