The signing of Peter Vincenti bolsters the level of experience in the squad, and adds a genuine physical and goal-threat from midfield. A combative and energetic presence in midfield with experience at this level of football with Stevenage, Aldershot and Rochdale, Vincenti should hopefully help us ease into life in League Two, rather than suffer the sort of culture shock that relegated teams endure during the opening months of the new season. Vincenti fits into the mould of ‘the sort of signing you need in League Two’ that Mark Robins has been pursuing this summer.
Standing at six foot four, Vincenti seems built to be a more typical holding or box-to-box midfielder, but became a real threat for Rochdale in recent years in League One as more of an out-and-out attacking player – either out wide or just behind the centre-forward. As you’d expect for a man of his stature, he’s good in the air, Vincenti is also a player of great energy and tenacity who’ll make life difficult for opponents. Where exactly he fits into the provisional starting XI remains to be seen given his versatility. Vincenti’s relatively recent high level of performance should make him an asset for us this season, however, he missed most of last season with an injury which has to be concerning given his age.
