Holbeach United boss Tom Roberts is close to completing his squad ready for the start of next season.

The Tigers revealed a hat-trick of signings this week along with a deal to keep last term’s top scorer Josh Ford.

Striker Stuart Eason – who ended the campaign with Spalding United – has agreed to come to Carter’s Park.

Joining him in the squad will be ex-Deeping Rangers defender Spencer Tinkler and teenager Tyler Wright who has made a big impact at Pinchbeck United.

Roberts said: “Eason is different to the other strikers in our squad.

“He is experienced having played at a higher level and he has always scored goals.

“He has an aerial threat and all-round approach play.

“Tinkler knows how to win games in the UCL Premier Division.

“He is Deeping’s record appearance holder in this league and he had been at the club since he was a kid.

“So it shows how much we wanted to get him here.

The new squad is coming together nicely – slowly but surely. We probably need to sign one or two more.

“Wright is a 19-year-old with bags of ability and now is the right time for him to make progress at a higher level.

“He’s a local lad with the hunger to be successful.

“We are also delighted that Ford has committed to the club for next season.

“The new squad is coming together nicely – slowly but surely. We probably need to sign one or two more.”

Meanwhile, the friendly at Pinchbeck has been called off so Holbeach are looking for another away game to be played on Tuesday, July 19.
