Ramsgate Complete Signing of William Johnson-Cole on Permanent Deal
Ramsgate Football Club is delighted to confirm the signing of William Johnson-Cole from Punjab United FC.
The 24-year old forward fired in 10 goals in 20 appearances for Punjab this season, whilst also contributing to 4 goals for Sevenoaks in 19 appearances.
Johnson-Cole was instrumental in securing Punjab United promotion to the SCEFL in 2018.
Following his move to Ramsgate, William is hopeful he can aid the club with moving in the right direction, admitting it’s a challenge he is prepared for.
“Nick has been in contact with me a few times over the past couple of months, and has been keeping tabs on me,” Johnson-Cole said.
“He (Nick) explained to me that he wants to build a team that’s ‘hungry and ambitious’ as well,”
“I’ve seen how the club is structured and whilst it’s going to be a challenge stepping up a level, It’s a challenge I’m excited to take on,”
“With a manager like Nick behind me, I’m sure everything will flow nicely.”
The pacey forward, who can play anywhere across the attacking line, has already set his sights on next season.
“I want to score goals and get assists, so ultimately my target is to have a positive impact on the team,” Johnson-Cole said.
“We will try and push for promotion in the upcoming season,”
“I’m excited to meet the lads during pre-season and hopefully I’ll hit the ground running!”
CEO Paul Bowden-Brown said "I would like to welcome Johnson-Cole to the club. If his pedigree is true, we have signed a young man who has a great future in professional football. I am so glad that he has agreed to terms to be the next player signing for the club. He becomes another piece in the jigsaw for Nick Davis, whilst he is rebuilding our team. It has been an extremely busy weekend and this week you will hear more about more additions to the squad"
Welcome to Ramsgate, William!
