Sports Sign New Keeper

by Peter Scherer

With regular keeper Oliver Bosworth still on the road to recovery, and loanee Lewis Ridd picking up an injury in the game at Redditch, Mickleover have signed former Turkish 6ft 5 ins Youth International goalkeeper Yusuf Mersin.

Greenwich born, Liverpool paid Millwall £1m to sign him as a 16 year old, but despite making the first team squad he never got the break.

After 3 ½ years he was released and joined Kasimpasa in Turkey, before playing in league two with Crawley Town.

National League Dover Athletic was his next move, and he spent last season with Maidstone Utd, before being released after a loan spell at Welling Utd.

He has been playing in Northern Ireland this season with Harland & Wolf Welders, but after playing for Sports Reserves a few days ago, he has now signed permanently.
