Blues move for experienced defender

Wingate & Finchley have strengthened their defence with the signing of Wes Parker ahead of the new Isthmian Premier season.

The 33-year-old arrives from National League South outfit Wealdstone, where he had played since 2010.

During his time with Stones, Parker was part of the squad that lifted the Isthmian Premier title in 2014.

The experienced centre-back was partnered Sean Cronin at the back in that title win, and the pair will link up again next season as part of the Blues’ defence.

Parker began his career with Grimsby Town for whom he made nine league appearances before departing in 2004.

Since then, Parker has gone on to represent Gainsborough Trinity and Boston United before his move south to join Wealdstone in 2010.

Parker will not be the only new face at the Maurice Rebak Stadium ahead of the new season, with Wingate expected to confirm more signings shortly as Kevin Rowland builds his squad.
