Lincoln Red Imps confirms the signing of 24 year old Yeray, ex Elche Midfielder. Harry Casciaro and Paco Mauro from the Lincoln Board were extremely pleased to welcome him to the training session at the Zabal football complex in La Linea. Raul Procopio is slowly seeing the reinforcments he requested realised. No doubt a few more additions are on the way.
A product of hometown Elche CF’s youth system, Yeray Patino Blasco made his senior debuts with the reserves in 2010–11 season. On 16 May 2012 he made his professional debut, playing the last 15 minutes of a 1–3 away loss against AD Alcorcón, for Segunda División championship. He finished the 2012–13 season scoring 14 goals (3 only in promotion play-offs) in 41 appearances with the B-side, being promoted to Segunda División B.
In July 2013, after lengthy negotiations, Yeray signed a new two-year deal with the Valencians. He rescinded his link on 16 July of the following year, and subsequently joined CF La Nucía in Tercera División. Yeray is excited about this opportunity to help the Lincoln side to further success this season and hopes his ability to break from the midfield at speed will create scoring opportunities for the likes of Walker, Mikey Yome & the ever present Casciaro brothers.
Yeray, Welcome to our Family, we wish you ever success this season.
