Welcome to the Clarets, Liam Vincent!
Chelmsford City are delighted to announce the loan signing of Liam Vincent. The 20-year-old is comfortable down the whole of the left hand side, and joins on loan from Portsmouth. He joined Pompey in the summer of 2021, after progressing through the ranks at Bromley and helping them to a playoff campaign, prior to his departure. He has spent time on loan whilst with Portsmouth, featuring for tonight’s opponents, Maidstone, in the National League. As well as that, he has been at Hampton & Richmond and Worthing, the latter he has played 6 games for this season. Last season, he played against the Clarets, for the Rebels. He predominantly features on the left side of defence, but has the versatility to push forward, positionally.
Manager Robbie Simpson spoke about the signing: “Liam is someone we have admired for quite some time actually, since his time at Hampton & Richmond.
Obviously, more recently at Worthing, where be managed to get 2 assists against us, in our 4-2 victory at Melbourne Park last season. They were 2 really quality crosses from him in counter attacking play.
We are delighted to bring Liam to the club. He gives us much needed depth down that left hand side. Since the departure of Adam Mills, we have been missing another left footed option, aside from Ben Brookes.
Liam can play left back, left wing back, left of a back 3 and left wing, so he is a type of player I love. You already know that he has got that intelligence to play in multiple positions and can take on instructions. Liam is another of those, adding to the many in our squad.
We are really looking forward to seeing him don the Claret shirt and help with our quest for a successful season.”
Everyone at Chelmsford City is delighted to welcome Liam Vincent, and we’re all very much looking forward to seeing him in a Chelmsford shirt!
