Since having spells with Buxton, Redditch and most recently, the Gingerbreads, Baker brings with him a wealth of experience that will supplement Curtis Woodhouse's young side. "I am delighted to welcome centre back Matt Baker to Gainsborough Trinity. He is certainly a player with some of the key characteristics that I’m looking for. As a former captain of Ilkeston, Matt will bring some leadership to our young squad and goes straight into the squad for tomorrow."

The new man is looking forward to getting started as he says, "I'm looking forward to getting started, the gaffer explained his ambition and how we wants to play.The FA Trophy tomorrow is always a good competition, hopefully we can have a good run for the club and the fans!"

Welcome to the club, Matt. Here's hoping you have an enjoyable stay and your time here reaps success and positive rewards for you - and the side!
