DROITWICH Spa have announced their latest three signings ahead of the start of the new season..

The Saltmen are boosted by the return of defender Mark Burrows who has been on a year’s sabbatical from the sport after captaining the side to a third place finish in Midland League Division Two in the 2015/16 season.

He was part of a defence which conceded just 23 goals in 26 league games and helped Spa to Presidents Cup and Worcestershire FA Saturday Junior Cup glory.

Also joining is left-back Chris Glover who has had previous spells at Fairfield Villa and Bromyard Town.

The 28-year-old can also play as a defensive midfielder.

The third player signing forms for Spa is 18-year-old right back is Curtis Townley who has been promoted from joint-boss Mark Owen’s academy.

“All three signings give us plenty of options as we have numerous players missing during the first month of the season,” joint-boss Wayne Oliver said.

“Chris and Curtis are utility players so it gives us the scope to change personnel.

“We are not going to panic over making more signings. We will sit tight and make our move when we need to.”

Spa enjoyed a 3-1 victory over FC Stratford town on Saturday, thanks to goals from James Lemon (2) and Macauley Finch.

The Saltmen’s final pre-season fixture comes on Saturday, August 5 when they entertain Inkberrow at the King George Playing Fields after the scheduled clash against Bewdley Town Reserves had to be cancelled.
