Defender Whitehead Joins Valley
Rugby Town have made the signing of young centre-back Ben Whitehead from Hinckley AFC.
Ben has signed a one-year contract after an impressive first season in senior football with Hinckley last season, winning the Players' Player of the Season award.
Whitehead, who turns 20 tomorrow, had a successful season with the Knitters as they finished runners-up in the UCL Division One in 2021/22.
Ben is currently recovering from a minor operation meaning he will miss the start of the season.
The central defender started out with the Strachan Football Foundation before moving to Hinckley where he played alongside fellow Valley alumni Matt Hill and Charlie Evans.
