Walthamstow FC are delighted to confirm the signing of Marcus Bowers, subject to approval formalities from the League.

Bowers will be well to Essex Senior League watchers, top scoring with 35 goals last season, helping fire Basildon United to promotion.

Prior to that, he had a spell with Basildon Town in the Olypmian League, scoring 35 in 26 (2016-17) 17 in 18 (2014-15 and 2013-14), 33 in 21 (2012-13) and Ramsden Scotia, where he scored 14 in 18 games.

Marcus has spent time at Great Wakering Rovers this season.

Stow manager Ryan Maxwell was delighted to finally secure Marcus’ signature, having tried to sign him numerous times since the summer.

For a taste of things to come, here’s Marcus scoring an injury-time free kick to secure Basildon United’s promotion last season.
