Selby Town expect to sign player with Football League nous
11:24am Friday 6th September 2013 in Sport
Selby Town manager Ian Dring expects to sign an ex-Football League player in order to kick-start the Robins’ season, writes Mat Robinson.
Dring was keeping his cards very close to his chest regarding the target but insisted the Northern Counties East League division one club were looking to bring in a few new faces in the next couple of weeks.
He said: “We are looking to sign a few players and as far as I’m concerned we need a shake-up.”
A third consecutive loss sent the Robins down to 19th with just six points from seven games, six of them at home.
Dring’s side lost 4-0 in their first away game of the season against Shaw Lane Aquaforce on Tuesday night.
“We played a good side. The first half we worked them well but we were to blame for the goals,” said Dring.
“Our left-back lost the ball when trying to pass it back to the ’keeper and our right-back tried to start an attack and lost the ball.”
Selby play Formby in the FA Vase tomorrow before heading to AFC Emley on Tuesday as they bid to prompt a turnaround.
Tadcaster Albion boss Paul Marshall’s injury woes are starting to ease as Carl Stewart looks set to be involved in Albion’s FA Vase tie against Birtley Town.
Marshall is pleased to see the striker back following a knee injury.
He said: “Carl Stewart is hoping to play at the weekend.
“We could have benefited with him these last couple of weeks because he would have scored a lot of goals in the games against Garforth and Maltby.”
While Stewart is set for a return, the club still have a list of injury problems with Lee Stewart, Matthew Sparks and George Bissett all out of action.
Newest signing Vincent Dhesi scored a seventh-minute debut goal in a 4-1 NCEL premier division win over Armthorpe Welfare on Tuesday, which pleased his new boss.
“It was a really good performance and a great debut goal for Dhesi,” said Marshall.
The Tadcaster manager also praised Stuart Rice, who is in fine form with a healthy three goals in his last two games. “Stuart is on fire, he is doing really well,” he said.
