Frank in striker swoop

Gresley Rovers boss Frank Northwood is set to reinforce his squad by signing Hereford United striker Ian Wells.
Wells, 23, is leaving Edgar Street because of injury problems – but believes he is capable of continuing his career on a part-time basis.

Northwood said last night: “Ian has plenty of league experience, so he will obviously be a real asset if he can steer clear of injury.”

Wells, based in Wolverhampton, trained with Rovers last night and expects to receive clearance to sign for them by the end of the month.

“Insurance compensation for Ian is being sorted out by the PFA at the moment and should be through by the end of the month,” said Northwood.

The Gresley manager sees Wells as the ideal replacement for top scorer Martin Devaney, who last month joined Beazer Homes League newcomers Tamworth.

Northwood has also signed 24-year-old midfielder Andy Moore from Wednesfield Social. He will team up at the Moat Ground with another former Wednesfield player, full back Dave Beattie.

Gary Stevens, released by Gresley at the end of last season, has joined Blakenall as player-coach.
