BASINGSTOKE Town have started to build their squad for forthcoming season in the Southern League Division One.

Last week the club re-signed Ben Wright, Reece Rusher and Adam Everiss.

The Dragons have also added some new faces to their first team squad with impressive young defender Chad Abrams formerly of Hungerford and Tadley Calleva signing on.

Attacking midfielder Harrison Cliff has joined from Ascot and Town Academy player D-Andre Brown has moved up to the first team.

Town opened the pre-season campaign last Saturday with a 5-3 loss at Burnham, after making a lot of changes having led 3-2 at half-time and then on Tuesday night drew 2-2 at Chertsey.

This Saturday, they are playing Met Police at Chertsey and then on Tuesday night, they take on Championship side Luton Town at Winchester City, which has a 7.30pm kick-off.

Town manager Martin Kuhl said: "I am very pleased with the players we have signed so far and also the attitude and work rate of the players in pre-season. We are now looking forward to the Luton game."
