HAMPSHIRE Senior Cup Final hero Liam Enver-Marum has agreed to sign for Basingstoke Town – after spending the last six weeks of the season playing for free.
The former Forest Green, Ebbsfleet and Braintree Town man has been a massive hit at the Camrose since joining the club on a non-contract basis in late March.
He made an instant impact, scoring twice on his debut against Dorchester, before going on to hit the net six times in just eight league starts.
The 26-year-old further endeared himself to Town fans last night, scoring two goals, including a dramatic injury-time winner, as Town beat Havant and Waterlooville 3-2 in the Hampshire Senior Cup Final.
Basingstoke manager Jason Bristow expected a battle to secure Enver-Marum’s services on a permanent basis, but speaking to the club website, he announced that the striker has agreed terms on a deal for next season.
“Liam agreeing to sign for us is fantastic news,” Bristow said. “He’s made a massive impact since coming in. He’s scored goals, he’s done well for the team, he’s been great to have around the place and he’s going to be a big part of the team, for the next year at least.”
Bristow also revealed that the striker has not been paid for his services over the closing stages of the season.
“He’s come in and played for nothing for the last six weeks of the season to try and prove himself and that’s the sort of commitment we’re after,” the Town boss added.
