Billy Kee signs for Southern League club after leaving Accrington

Billy Kee signs for Southern League club Coaville Town, leaving many stunned after leaving and finishing his professional career at Accrington Stanley.

Billy, who is aged 29, has spent his whole career in professional football with Leicester City, Burton Albion, Torquay and most recently Accrington Stanley helping them achieve League One status.

He has recently had six months out of football for personal reasons before mutually agreeing to cancel his Accrington contract two weeks ago.

Chairman Glyn Rennocks commented: ‘When someone of Billy’s calibre becomes available on our doorstep you have to do everything you can to get him on board. Since we met last week its been a pleasure to deal with him and we are delighted he’s chosen us over a host of big names in non-league.

‘Being a Leicester based lad our location suits him perfectly, he can now balance working full time whilst playing part time football. I would like to thank everyone behind the scenes who has helped get this deal over the line.’

Manager Adam Stevens added: ‘I am delighted to get Billy back on the football pitch again, my type of player whose experience, ability and know how will be invaluable to us in the run in.

To choose us is a massive coup for the Club and local area . I’m sure Billy and family will fit in with our family club ethos and enjoy his football again.’

Billy goes straight into Tuesdays squad to face Needham Market at home after already training with the squad on Thursday & Saturday.”
