Non-league: Hamworthy boss set to sign midfield duo
BELEAGUERED boss Simon Browne hopes to bolster his Hamworthy United squad this week after confirming seven-day approaches for midfielders Aaron Corby and James Ford.
The County Ground manager, responding to a run of defeats that was extended to seven on Saturday, said he was confident he could capture ex-Hammer Corby from Bournemouth Poppies as well as Ford, who has fallen out of favour at Moneyfields.
Browne said neither player was likely to be available for tomorrow’s trip to Downton (7.45pm), but that both periods of notice would be up tomorrow with no last-minute hiccups anticipated.
Browne told the Daily Echo: “Hopefully, both should be pretty nailed on. Aaron told us he wanted to come back and Fordy has not featured for Moneys for a couple of weeks now.
“We had tried to get his (Ford’s) seven days waived in time for the Downton match. That does not look likely, but all being well we should have both lads available for Saturday.
“The squad needed some impetus from somewhere so we have tinkered with it. We were not looking at central midfield as a problem area, we just had the opportunity to sign these players and shake things up a little bit.”
Sam Lockyer steps in to an otherwise unchanged Hamworthy United squad for the trip to Wiltshire.
Hammers: (from) Knights, Penny, Legg, Lockyer, Horlock, Tayler, Sturgess, Lanahan, Stacey, Pekun, Chudy, Claremont, Hester, Saunders, Miles, Martin.
- In today’s FA Vase second round draw, Verwood Town were handed a home tie with league rivals Alresford Town while the winner of Christchurch’s replay with Moneyfields will travel to Bath-based Western League outfit Odd Down.
Ties take place on the weekend of Saturday, November 16 with a prize pot of £1,200 up for grabs.
