Spalding United have outlined their ambitions for the new season after pulling off an impressive double striker swoop.
The Tulips have moved to bring in talented forward Bradley Rolt from National League North side Brackley Town on Monday, just days after sealing a deal for pacey Peterborough Sports hitman Josh Moreman.
Rolt is a product of the Peterborough United youth set-up and he includes Irish Premier League side Bohemians among his former clubs.
Moreman, meanwhile, played for Spalding during Pat Rayment’s reign as boss and helped fire Sports to the promised land of the Vanarama National League North last season.
Those signings come off the back of the exciting signing of speedy winger Matt Sparrow from Pitching In NPL Midlands Division rivals Yaxley.
Elliot Sandy and Jordan O’Brien both signed from Corby Town earlier in the summer too, while keeper Dan George has also joined from Cambridge City.
But it’s the deals for Rolt and Moreman that has got the non-league scene talking, with boss Brett Whaley’s side being tipped to be promotion hopefuls.
“I’m really pleased to bring Brad to the club,” said Tulips chief Whaley. “To attract a player of this quality shows we are moving in the right direction.
“He will add another attacking goal threat for us and I’m really looking forward to working with him.
“Josh is a huge signing for us, his quality is unquestionable.
“He’s a proven winner and I’m delighted to have him on board, it’s a real boost for us as we head into pre-season.”
Rolt said: “I’m really happy to get the move sorted.
“I’m looking forward to the new season starting and I can’t wait to get going, I’m excited about what’s to come.”
Moreman added: “I’m very happy to be joining Spalding and can’t wait to join up with the squad and get the season started and push for promotion.
“It’s a new challenge for me and I’m very much looking forward to it.”
The Tulips, meanwhile, have made an addition to their first team management set-up with Rob Green joining the fold as kitman.
Whaley added: “Having a kitman is a vital role for the squad at training and games and it’s a pleasure to have Rob involved.
“His passion for the club and passion for the role makes him the ideal addition.”
A delighted Green said: “It’s a new role and challenge for me but I can’t wait to get involved in NPL football and play my part.”
Spalding begin their pre-season friendly fixtures with a South Holland derby against Pinchbeck United in a game that will be played at Knight Street on Tuesday night (7.30pm).
The Tulips then face St Ives Town at the Sir Halley on July 16, visit Deeping Rangers and Harrowby on July 19 and 22 respectively, before a big home date with Peterborough United on July 29.
