Three More Added to Eastwood Squad

Blue Square Bet North club Eastwood Town have added three new players to their injury-hit squad.


Midfielder Bradley Munn has signed following his release by npower League Two side Burton Albion, left-sided winger Craig Nelthorpe has been signed from Matlock Town, while highly-rated striker Craig Davies has joined after moving back up north.


Munn is a central midfielder who joined the Brewers as a second year scholar after the closure of Mansfield Town's scholarship scheme.


After impressing for the Brewers youth side Munn was handed a squad number and a place on the bench for the home game against Macclesfield Town in March 2011.


Following the completion of his scholarship he was given a six-month contract for the start of this season.


Nelthorpe (pictured) has enjoyed spells at Doncaster Rovers, Kidderminster Harriers, Oxford United and York City before chipping in with five goals for Gateshead last season.


He joined Conference North side Gainsborough Trinity in June 2011 but the set-piece specialist was released the following November and subsequently signed for Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division side Matlock Town.


Davis has most recently been turning out for Margate on dual registration with Hampton after being with Gate`s Ryman League Premier Division rivals Horsham on similar terms.


He started the 2011/12 season with St Albans City and made an early season switch to Leatherhead before signing for the Hornets.


He had signed for St Albans from Stalybridge Celtic having played for a number of northern-based clubs including Warrington Town, Burscough, Lancaster City and Morecambe.


Meanwhile, young reserve defender Josh Raven has signed Conference forms for the Badgers and his registration came through in time for him to be a sub against Guiseley.


While Eastwood's form has improved, their fortunes have not, as they head into the crucial run of games with a flurry of injuries to contend with.


"We have six players fighting injury at the minute, as well as Chris Shaw suspended," said manager John Ramshaw.


"When you don't have a massive squad to begin with, it is not ideal. But, while the timing could be better, we are positive and we will be looking to get the results we need."
