Eve seals permanent deal with Spennymoor
Bermuda goalkeeper Dale Eve has been signed on a permanent deal by Vanarama National League North club Spennymoor Town.
The 25-year-old, who starred during Bermuda’s run in the Concacaf Gold Cup and Nations League last year, made a lasting impression, despite playing in only one league match — a convincing 4-0 defeat of Hereford.
He also impressed in the Durham Challenge Cup.
“I’m pleased to re-sign with the Moors,” Eve, whose terms were undisclosed, told the club’s official website. “For me, playing football isn’t just a job. I look at all the time and energy I’m going to put in at a club and I want to feel comfortable about where I sign.
“The Spennymoor family did that for me. I felt like it was an environment that I could really grow and showcase my potential.”
Eve began the 2019-20 season at Robin Hood before returning to England to relaunch a professional career that had previous stops at Derby County, Stoke City and Forest Green Rovers.
He added: “The manager [Jason Ainsley] as well as the team have welcomed me and made me feel like a part of the family. I’m looking forward to what next season will bring for us.”
Ainsley said: “Dale was exceptional when he came into training and had to be patient to get his first league start
“He is a very big presence in and around his 18-yard box and showed in the Hereford game that he has all the attributes and qualities to play a lot higher.
“We are delighted that he has signed for us despite competition from other clubs.”
