Moors are delighted to announce the signing of central defender Matt Preston, who has penned a two-year contract with the club until May 2023.

Preston, 26, started his career at Walsall where he captained their under-18 side before signing his first professional contract in January 2013.

He went on to amass over 100 Football League appearances for the Saddlers, Swindon Town and Mansfield Town.

In October 2020, Preston signed for Barnet and made 16 appearances in all competitions across the 2020/21 campaign.

Upon signing for Moors, Preston said:

“I’m delighted to sign. I’ve played against the club quite a few times in the past and I’ve always thought it’s a good club.

“Everything that you need is here. I think everyone at the club wants to get promoted, that’s what the ambition is.

“First and foremost, I’m a defender and my job is to help keep the ball out of the net. I’d like to think I can keep the ball as well and recycle where it needs to be recycled.”

Welcome to the Moors, Matt!
