Because apparently they weren't strong enough already!
Strengthen from a position of strength, so the old saying goes- and Maldon & Tiptree are certainly doing that, after they announced the capture of Coggeshall Town midfielder Connor Hubble.
Connor has already made fourteen appearances for the Seed Growers this season, scoring six goals- adding to his ten goals in forty eight appearances last season, his clubs first in the North Division. It's unlikely that the Jammers have signed him for his goals, given they already have sixty seven of those this season- an average of just under four a match, astoundingly- but he has many admirable qualities and will be a great asset for the Park Drive side, and a big loss to the Seed Growers.
He may be available as the Jammers look to defeat Felixstowe and Walton United tonight for the third time this season, but he will be cup tied for their forthcoming matches in the FA Cup and FA Trophy.
