More Deals Done As The Big Kick-Off Gets Closer And Closer

By Sam Elliott

The clock is ticking until the start of the new season and with August just days away, the finishing touches are being put on squads.

The Vanarama National League North and South begins on August 14 - with the National League clubs returning to action a week later.

The excitement is building but the pressure is on to get things perfect for the opening day and more deals have been done this week.

On Friday there was a flurry of business.

It’s been a very busy summer at Barnet - Joe Widdowson, a National League champion with Leyton Orient in 2019, has joined the Bees’ close-season overhaul.

Two AFC Wimbledon starlets are heading for the National League South on loan - David Fisher return to Hampton & RB, while Jack Currie joins Eastbourne Borough.

It was a week where another talented young star got a big move to the Championship.

Peterborough United have signed Eastleigh full-back Joe Tomlinson, 21, on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee, pictured.

Posh manager Darren Ferguson said: "I was made aware of him last season, we had eyes on him in the first pre-season game and we didn't need to see him again, it was done, the decision was made."

Grimsby Town moved for Aston Villa defender Sebastian Revan, who will be on loan for the season

Southend United have signed striker Sam Dalb after the 21-year-old left Watford. He had loan spells at Stockport County and Woking.

Ebbsfleet United have announced the signing of former Maidstone United and Aldershot defender Alex Finney.

Weymouth have added midfielder Xander McBurnie to their squad, while Dover Athletic have signed Gillingham midfielder Henry Woods on loan.

Gloucester City have a new goalkeeper as Liam Armstrong joins the National League North Tigers.

Woking sign Tahvon Campbell earlier this week and he made the perfect start scoring the winner against AFC Wimbledon.
