BRIDGWATER Town co-manager Dave Pearse is pleased to have secured the services of six new players ahead of the Toolstation Western League campaign and has his sights set on further additions.

The Robins signed Callum Ham, Shaun Lambert and Mark Armstrong from Cheddar as well as capturing Lee Begg, Steve Holland and George Sinnott, who returns for a second spell at Fairfax Park.

Speaking about the new boys, Pearse said: “We are pleased to bring them in, and they will add vital experience and quality.

“Shaun is ready for a new challenge and will be a good addition, while Callum Ham’s goalscoring record last year speaks for itself.

“Mark is one of those midfielders who does the dirty work and simply gets the job done, which is what we need.

“Steve has bags of experience having played at a good level for the past 10-12 years.

“He can play anywhere in the midfield, and it will be great to have his experience to complement the young lads – that is something we were desperately lacking last year.

“I have played with Lee Begg at Street and he is a proper, no-nonsense centre half who always puts in 110 per cent, and he is another with valuable experience.

“As for George, he left on good terms last year and is happy to be back.

“His pace will be useful and he is left-footed, which is something I felt we needed and will add balance to the side.”

Having run the rule over the six who have joined, Pearse went on to outline his plans to further boost the playing squad between now and the start of the season.

“We are speaking to another four players at the moment, and I imagine some of them will turn up to pre-season training and we’ll go from there.”

The co-manager was also pleased with how many of the existing squad have agreed to stay after last season’s relegation, particularly player of the year Kurt Robinson.

“Kurt committed really early – he told us at presentation night that he wanted to stay, which was great.”
