EAST THURROCK striker Kris Newby has changed his mind and will not be joining Canvey, despite the islanders’ recent announcement.
Newby has instead decided to join Thurrock after they were handed a Conference South relegation reprieve at the weekend.
Two weeks ago, it was reported that the striker was due to sign for Grays Athletic but then he was due to sign on the dotted line for Canvey Island.
East Thurrock told the media that he left the club for “non-footballing” reasons.
Last season, Newby scored 28 goals for East Thurrock.
