TERRAS’ new signing Abdulai Baggie impressed assistant-manager Paul Maitland after his debut on Saturday.

Baggie signed for Weymouth after he was released by Poole Town and their manager, Tommy Killick, made the Terras aware of his availability.

The former Reading trainee went straight into the starting XI played the whole 90 minutes as Weymouth suffered a 4-1 defeat at Hereford and were knocked out of the FA Trophy on Saturday.

Baggie can boast a huge amount of experience and has previously played for Bristol Rovers and has played for the England under-16 and under-17 sides.

During a spell at Tranmere in 2013 his good form was rewarded with a call-up for Sierra Leone.

Baggie will add flexibility to the Terras’ attack as he can play in a range of positions including number 10 and as a winger.

Maitland said: “Considering he hadn’t played for five or six weeks he came through quite well.”

Baggie enjoyed a good debut despite the result and at one point played a fine ball to Harry McGrath which forced the Bulls’ defence into rearguard action.

Maitland added: “He showed some promising moments considering he only trained on Thursday and only met the lads once.

“He did quite well, he offers something a bit different.”
