Two vital goals in two games from Charlie Sigler have earned the young Haverhill Rovers striker glowing words from his manager.
Sigler came off the bench on Tuesday to score an 88th equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Felixstowe and Walton United to follow on from his match-clinching second goal for Rovers in their 2-0 win over Walsham-le-Willows on Easter Monday.
Since joining from West Wratting, Sigler has mostly been used from the bench, but manager Michael Shinn is delighted with him.
He said: “When we signed Charlie we spoke to him and said you are going to be an impact player. He accepted that and he just wanted to come in and learn and give it a go and his attitude has been first class.”
Rovers go to Mildenhall Town on Saturday knowing victory would guarantee their Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division status with two more games to go unless Wivenhoe Town win all their remaining three games.
Centre-half Martyn Farrant is out for the rest of the season after breaking three ribs against Felixstowe while full-back Will Gardner’s ankle injury has also ended his campaign.
Saturday’s match will pitch Shinn against the man who started the 2014/15 season in charge of Haverhill Rovers, Dean Greygoose.
