NOMADIC talent Jack Cresswell has been backed to find his home at Evesham United by new boss Carl Abbott.

The 26-year-old ex-Manchester United trainee went on to become a scholar at Walsall but has had many outposts in non-league since his Saddlers release.

He had a spell at Kidderminster Harriers and includes Redditch United, Bromsgrove Sporting, Alvechurch, Studley and Littleton on his CV.

But having swooped for his services, Abbott reckons Cresswell can finally put down some roots at the Jubilee.

“Cres is one of those lads that seems like he has been around forever but is still only in his mid-20s,” said Abbott.

“He is a player I have admired for a long time, I would personally pay money to watch him play because his ability is really outstanding.

“He is suited to a certain style and could very well find his home with us, he very much fits the mould of what we try to do.

“Teams that are direct probably don’t suit him and maybe that accounts for him flitting around a bit over the past few years.

“He was very comfortable while at Alvechurch and stood out there, he is a perfect player for our system.”

Another eye-catching capture is that of ex-Hereford midfielder Mike McGrath.

The 33-year-old is another player who has travelled around the circuit, particularly after leaving the Bulls in November 2018.

“Macca is more in the bracket of Junior Smikle and Dan Bragoli. He was the first player I spoke to over the summer and at the time had already committed to going to Stourbridge,” said Abbott.

“We then got the opportunity to revisit that one when he approached us but the situation has changed slightly in that he may have to wait his turn.

“It was still something we did not want to turn down, though.”

The signing of the two midfielders perhaps fills the void left by triple player-of-the-season winner Joe Turley who has linked up with Swindon Supermarine.

Abbott left open the door for Turley while he trialled at National South Gloucester City, also United’s groundsharing tenants, over the summer.

However, the popular ace has chosen to join last season’s top scorer Kane Simpson and former Robins Matt Williams and Mat Liddiard in Wiltshire.

“I haven’t spoken to Joe, the offer was open to him and it was a genuine one. I was only a phone call away but Swindon Supermarine are in the league above,” said Abbott.

“He has split the difference between the levels and good luck to him, I hope it works out for him and he progresses through step three.”

Abbott rounded off by confirming his squad could be temporarily reduced before the big kick-off as he looks to find game time for those unlikely to be involved early on.

“We have around 21-22 players at the moment, including a couple of very young lads,” he added.

“We are talking to one or two about going out on loan short term. Other than Dan Tustin out at Stourport Swifts we have nothing arranged yet but it is something we will look at.”
