Butcher Adds Two For SPL Challenge
Updated Tuesday, 6th July 2010
New season, new challenge and, therefore, new players required for ICT.
There are two new players in the Inverness Caledonian Thistle squad ahead of the new season as manager Terry Butcher has brought Israeli striker Gil Blumanshtein and goalkeeper Max Johnson to the Caledonian Stadium. Blumanshtein has signed a one-year deal after spending last season with Hapoel Beersheba. He has a Polish passport which means there is no work permit issues to worry about. Johnson has also agreed a one-year deal after three years as a youth and reserve player at Newcastle.
Butcher said: "I received good recommendations on both lads and they have shown up well in practice matches and earned themselves offers. Gil has good speed and is a versatile attacker and adds to our forward resources. We've been looking for goalkeeping back-up for Ryan Esson, and Max has good experience from Newcastle and will challenge for the jersey. It's pleasing to get these deals done and dusted early. But we've not finished our recruitment yet and we have several other trialists continuing to train with us and we'll see if there are developments there."
