JIMMY Floyd Hasselbaink has completed another summer signing with defender Frazer Blake-Tracy agreeing to join the club once his contract with Peterborough expires.
The 25-year-old has agreed a two-year deal with the Brewers and becomes the sixth new face to arrive at the Pirelli Stadium this summer.
Blake-Tracy joined Peterborough in July 2019 on a two-year deal, having previously impressed at King’s Lynn Town.
Before signing for Peterborough, the defender had spent four years in non-league playing for Dereham Town and Lowestoft Town before making 98 appearances for Kings Lynn.
With the Posh having been promoted to the Championship at the end of last season, he was released, and the Brewers came in to bring him to the Pirelli Stadium.
Blake-Tracy is a left back by preference and will add to the Brewers defensive options.
Hasselbaink said: “It was important to have two good left backs in the building who will fight for the position. We are delighted to bring Frazer in, coming from a good club. He has lots of potential. He can also play left side centre half and we are happy with this addition to the club.”
Hasselbaink is also pleased with the way the squad is coming together so far.
“We still have more work to do on the squad. We let 12 go so we need to fill the squad up and have doubles for every position so there’s still more to do, but I’m happy with what we have done so far.”
Blake-Tracy said: “I’m really happy to be here. I came and spoke to the manager, and he spoke very highly of the club. We had a good conversation about where he sees me fitting in and it’s great to be signing.
“I wanted to play in League One and after a few injuries I feel that I need a good season now to really go at it and this is where I want to play my football.
“I can play left-back or centre-back which I did at Peterborough. I didn’t play for them there as a back two, but I’ve played there before in my career.
“When I met the manager we had a good conversation, he knows what he’s talking about and I’m looking forward to working with him.”
