Three new signings
Gresley Rovers have reacted quickly to bolster an injury-ravaged squad, today completing a hat trick of new signings.
David Berks, a 21-year-old midfielder who's past clubs have included Stafford Rangers, Aston Villa, Hednesford Town and Rocester. David scored 5 goals in 21 appearances last season for Stafford Rangers.

19-Year-old former Derby County forward Carl Francis has also signed. Carl was a target earlier in the season after release from Derby County, but he was invited to Sheffield Wednesday for trials. He has recently been training with Derby whilst looking for a club

Midfielder Gareth Holmes has been persuaded to return to the Moat ground 6 weeks after returning to Unibond Premier pace setters Hucknall Town.

Holmes impressed during his loan spell in September and Gary Norton hoped to make the deal permanent, however a change in work circumstances for Gareth and the fact that he also coaches the U19s at Watnall Road, meant that he decided to stay at Hucknall. These situations have now been resolved and he returns to Gresley Rovers.

All three players will go straight into the squad to face Redditch at home on Saturday.
