Dean Thomas believes Josh Moreman could be prove to be an “excellent asset” to Kettering Town in the future.
The former Corby Town striker made the surprise move to Latimer Park from United Counties League side Deeping Rangers on Friday but missed the chance to make his Poppies debut when their Calor League Division One Central match at Barton Rovers was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
Moreman was the Steelmen’s top scorer last season but left Steel Park early on in the current campaign before dropping down to play for the club he left to join Corby last year.
But Kettering made their move for the youngster, who has hit 13 goals for Deeping, and Thomas believes Moreman could prove to be a hit at Latimer Park.
“Josh has scored a lot of goals at a good level,” Thomas said.
“We have managed to bring him in, it may mean moving one or two on but, like I have said before, we are working to the same budget we had at the start of the season so if one comes in, one will have to go out.
“Josh is a goalscorer and I am a firm believer that if you score goals at one level, you can score them at any level as long as you are provided with the right service.
“I know he has the ability, he knows he has the ability and now he has a good stage to go and show it. I am sure he will and I think he will be an excellent asset for us.
“During this unbeaten run we have been on, we have worked hard on things defensively and we have done well at keeping the goals out.
“But everyone knows that scoring goals brings success and I am sure Josh can help us in that department.”
Moreman is now line to make his debut for the Poppies on Boxing Day when they take on St Ives Town at Latimer Park.
