Claridge commits to another season with Swifts


DEFENDER Joe Claridge is the latest player to commit to staying with Swifts next season.

The full-back, who cut his teeth at West Ham and Chelsea, is the 11th member of last season’s Bostik North play-off winning squad to be retained.

Ex-Maldon and Sudbury star Claridge (pictured by Alan Edmonds) made his Swifts debut in a 3-1 Tolleshunt D’Arcy Memorial Cup win at Witham in August 2018.

Since then he has gone on to establish himself as a firm favourite with the Black & White Army with a number of excellent displays down the left flank.
