Ben Dibb-Fuller Joins the Railwaymen

Shildon AFC is delighted to announce the signing of forward Ben Dibb-Fuller from Newcastle Benfield FC.

Ben’s previous clubs include Newton Aycliffe, Hebburn Town and Team Northumbria.

Shildon AFC Manager, Chris Hughes said: “This is a really important signing for Shildon and how we want to continue to improve as a team.

Ben fits in perfectly to how we want to play and the system we are using. He is capable of playing on both flanks and I am sure he is someone the fans will enjoy watching. Alongside his football ability, we are signing a good person who will fit in alongside the other top characters we have at the club.

We have watched him several times over the years and also had the benefit of access to our videos for games earlier in the season against Newcastle Benfield.

Ben knows a few players in the squad so we expect him to settle in quickly and contribute in games starting on Saturday against Tadcaster”.

Welcome to Shildon AFC Ben.
