Lincoln Moorlands Railway pull off coup by signing former Imps striker Nathan Adams
LINCOLN MOORLANDS have pulled off a significant transfer coup after former Lincoln City striker Nathan Adams joined Chris Moyses' Newark Road revolution.
The Echo can reveal the youngster has quit Stamford Town to sign for the Moors and is in line to make his debut against Scarborough on Wednesday night.
Adams was only released by Lincoln last December having made four appearances for the club after graduating from their Centre of Excellence.
He later joined Evo-Stik Division One side Stamford, but after putting a seven-day approach to speak to the 19-year-old, Moyses has convinced the Lincoln-born forward to return home.
"I'm delighted we have signed Nathan because he is a good player and I believe he is good enough to be in the league," he said.
"Hopefully, while he is here we can help him achieve that aim which would be a feather in the cap for Moorlands.
"He is the type of player I want to be bringing to this football club because I already have my eye on next season.
"Ideally, I want my squad and shopping done before the end of this season so we will be prepared and ready for when we report back for pre-season training."
Adams would have played in the goal-less draw against Brighouse at the weekend, but a suspension meant he had to sit the game out.
Moyses said he was disappointed not to claim a win, although he conceded his side had not burst into life until the last 20 minutes of the Northern Counties East League Premier Division clash.
However, the Moors are now unbeaten in five games and have lost just once in their last nine outings.
And Moyses says being disappointed with a point is a far cry from when he took over the helm.
"It just goes to show you how far we have come when we are disappointed not to win when last year we would have been delighted with a draw," he said.
"We didn't start playing until the last 20 minutes and we just left it too late.
"But it keeps the unbeaten run going and we'll look to stretch that when we play Scarborough on Wednesday."
