Salisbury snap up Brown
Marvin Brown

Nationwide South high-flyers Salisbury City have completed the capture of striker Marvin Brown from Nationwide South rivals Weston-super-Mare.

The 23-year-old is currently Weston's leading scorer, with fourteen goals in thirty-two games and City boss Nick Holmes is hoping his arrival will help maintain their promotion push.

"Marvin has a great pedigree and a superb goalscoring record with Weston," Holmes told the Salisbury Journal.

"To score that many goals in a struggling side says a lot. We've been chasing him for a few weeks now but the wait was worth it."

Brown has loads of experience in the Football League having plied his trade at Torquay United, Cheltenham Town and Yeovil Town and has also had spells in the Nationwide Conference with Forest Green Rovers and Tamworth.

Holmes added: "It's a very good extra member of the squad and with the boys we've brought in recently, Matt Robinson, Mike Fowler and Alan Neilson, it's got our squad up to the strength that's going to be needed through these last two torrid months of the season.

"Every club that's successful will have four or five top quality strikers and I felt we needed to get some cover as Tubbsy was missing for a few games."
