Craig Westcarr and Bradley Wells are the latest incomings at Hawton Lane with the former Forest, Notts and Mansfield striker now 35, joining Newark FC and their quest for promotion from the Midland Football League.
Wells is an exciting player with experience from the levels above having played for a number of non-league clubs including Gainsborough Trinity, Hednesford Town, Stamford, Gresley, Belper United and Spalding United to name a few with both bringing added quality to the Tangerines front line.
Newark last week announced the re-signings of Will Rawdon and Francois Zoko who like Westcarr, the latter brings tons of football league experience to Lowfields as Newark look to continue their rise up the football pyramid.
Another team with high aspirations and equally as busy so far during lockdown has been Basford United who have announced the new signings of Niall Towle and Charlie Gatter whilst Goalkeeper Jordan Pierrepont also comes in at Greenwich Avenue to join Kyle Dixon who’s capture was announced in March.
19 year old Towle scored 30 goals at Long Eaton and was a youngster at Nottingham Forest whilst defender Gatter still only 22 has played for the likes of Boston, Gainsborough and Hednesford where he was the centre half partner alongside current United stalwart Stef Galinski. 20 year old Pierrepont joins from Heanor Town after a fabulous season and is regarded as a promising goalkeeper having already played at Basford’s BetVictor Northern Premier League rivals Matlock Town as a 17 year old after moving from Chesterfield before joining Heanor.
It’s not just been incomings for Steve Chettle’s side though. Striker Nat Watson and midfielder James Reid have left the club to join Ilkeston Town after successful spells for United.
