New manager Paul Cox has made his first two signings since arriving at Plainmoor.

The first signing of the summer is striker Tyrone Marsh.

The young striker has signed a 12 month deal with us after leaving Ebbsfleet this summer and Cox is obviously delighted with his capture.

Speaking to the Official Site the gaffer explained.

‘We`ve brought a player to the football club who is an immense raw talent. I`ve watched him a number of times and watched him evolve as a young player. He scored 10 goals in 20 appearances for Welling last year and while he still needs work, there is unbelievable talent there and the club can enjoy a very good signing.’

Cox went on to say that for him partnerships are based on differences and he likes the idea of Marsh alongside Ryan Bowman as it could be an interesting option for us.

‘It will be very interesting to see how they develop together and the potential is immense. Tyrone has a good background, he`s played at League 2 level and at 21, he is the type of young player I want to bring to the football club. Everybody knows our current situation and it benefits us to develop young players.’

The second signing is James Hurst.

He has signed a one year deal as well and arrives from Hednesford Town having come through the youth ranks of Premier League side West Bromwich Albion.

‘For a 23 year-old, James has already had an excellent career. He has perhaps fallen from grace after the potential he had as a young player but we`re hoping to put him back on track. He brings immense experience for the level he`s played at and a fantastic athlete. He`s also a technically gifted footballer and he brings a lot of attributes to the club. We need to refocus his career and if he does what he`s capable of doing, I`m sure there will be a number of sides watching the lad very quickly.’

Cox goes on to say he’s predominantly a right back but he can also operate on the right of midfield or even the wing, so he brings us options for games.

This site is looking for an editor (at least a contributor or blogger), so if you’re a fan that can offer us a genuine opinion we would love to share it with the masses!
