Manager Paul Cox has added two new players to our ranks ahead of the National League opener against Macclesfield this weekend.

Incoming are former Notts County goalkeeper Fabian Spiess and Mansfield Town striker Alex Fisher.

Beginning with 21 year old Spiess, he comes in following a successful trial spell at the club following his release by County last season.

In his time with them having come through their youth ranks he made 13 appearances for the side, but also took in loan spells with Lewes, Corby Town and Bristol Rovers to aide his development.

Speaking to the Official Site Cox said that he’d been watching the development of the player for the last couple of years and he was delighted to bring him in.

‘Fabian is a goalkeeper that I have watched for two and-a-half years. He was extremely highly rated as a youngster with all the big clubs monitoring him, but as is the case with some young players, his progression to the first-team was halted and that impacted on him. We`ve been working one-on-one with him and he`s gone from strength-to-strength since he`s been here. It means that we now have two top-class young goalkeepers both vying for a starting place, and that is a great position to be in. I am delighted to have him on board.’

As Spiess arrived though Wolverhampton Wanderers’ youngster Jim Kellerman returned to his parent club having picked up a knee injury in training.

‘It`s a real shame for the lad and the club. He’s acquitted himself really well here and showed us what talent he has. Unfortunately he`s had to return to Wolves for treatment, which is disappointing, especially so close to the start of the season.’

That brings us nicely to Fisher who played under Cox at Mansfield Town.

The 25 year old striker also enjoyed a successful loan spell with us and he found the net in the recent friendly against Bideford.

‘First and foremost Alex is a different type of player to what we have here already. He`s a lad that I`ve worked with previously and I know exactly what we`ll get from him. He`s played at a higher level and he has good experience for someone of his age, so that will help the younger lads around him. His work-rate is excellent and I am delighted to be able to add him to the squad.’

With two more now in, the gaffer also confirmed he wasn’t yet finished in the transfer market this window.
