Gresley Rovers boss Frank Northwood has taken the first step towards building a Banksís League championship side for 1990.
Northwood, determined to go one better next term than this yearís disappointing runners-up spot, moved north to sign highly experienced players from the Derby area.

Paul Turner, a 28-year-old sweeper, full back or midfielder and striker Steve Cant, also 28, put pen to paper for Gresley on Sunday night.

Said Northwood: ďItís always good to have new faces in the squad and both these players are highly rated. Turner was at Heanor Town last season but didnít enjoy it. Cant hasnít played for a while so weíll have to get him fit but reports Iíve had say heís a bit special.Ē

Both players have spent time on the Nottingham Forest groundstaff, Turner having spent four years at the City Ground and Cant two.

Turner also had a brief spell with Burton Albion in the build up to the 1986-87 campaign, while Cant picked up a losersí medal with Alfreton Town when Gresley won the Derbyshire Senior Cup for the first time two years ago.

Rovers are still awaiting the official letter detailing the reasons for their failure to gain promotion to the Beazer Homes League Midland Division.
