HAMWORTHY have further strengthened their squad ahead of the new season with the addition of Aiden Shepherd and George Calverley.

Tim Sills' side start the 2022-23 season on FA Cup duty, travelling to Hellenic Premier outfit Bradford Town in the Extra Preliminary round.

Striker Shepherd came through the ranks at nearby Wimborne Town, being labelled by former Magpies boss Matty Holmes as similar to prolific goalscorer Toby Holmes.

Handed his Wimborne debut at the age of 16, Bournemouth-born Shepherd also spent time in the Wessex Premier with Bournemouth Poppies and Shaftesbury, the latter of which he finished the last campaign with.

Left-back Calverley started his career with Yeovil, before linking up with Dorchester Town's under-23 set up.

After making 15 appearances in the Southern Premier League with the Magpies, Calverley was loaned to Bridport in the Western League, and also has spent time with Shaftesbury.

The pair become the latest additions at the County Ground since the arrival of young midfielder Rhys Taylor.

Similarly to Calverley and Shepherd, Taylor had trialled with the Hammers throughout pre-season.
