NEW SIGNING: Mark Benterman has added Jack Severy to his Debenham squad

Debenham LC have completed the signing of Jack Severy.

The attacker was Ipswich Wanderers’ leading goalscorer in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division last season, finding the net 13 times from his 36 appearances.

Severy scored one further goal in six outings for Wanderers this term, but he has now joined up with Mark Benterman’s Hornets.

Speaking about the new addition, Benterman’s assistant — Leon Moore — said: “We signed Jack as he is a strong, powerful winger who can also play as a striker.

“His left foot is like a wand and the experience he can offer is immense.

“He has been there, done it and got the t-shirt in local football.

“He is a great addition to the group and we hope he enjoys his time with Debenham.

Meanwhile, Severy, who made his debut as a substitute during Saturday’s 1-0 win over Norwich United Reserves, added: “Debenham is a good club that is moving in the right direction.

“Personally I needed a fresh start to get back to enjoying football. We’ve got some great personalities within this squad.”

Also linking up with Debenham is Bradley Austin, whose 28 goals helped Barham Athletic to win the Touchline Suffolk & Ipswich League Division Two title in 2016/17.

Austin said: “It was a tough decision to leave Barham after winning the league with them, but the chance to come back in to this level and try to prove myself was too good to turn down.

“Having trained with the lads it became an easier decision.”

In terms of outgoings, Lewis Kemp and Lewis Cooke have both moved on.
