Transfer Deals Done As Clubs Have Another Busy Week

By Sam Elliott

It’s been another busy week of transfers as clubs’ return to pre-season gets closer.

Managers are getting busy and deals are getting done as June turned into July and the new season starts to come into sight.

The National League North and South clubs go back into battle first - and there has been some interesting movement.

Tonight, powerful striker Matt Rhead has signed for Billy Heath’s Alfreton Town.

Striker Nyal Bell has signed for Kidderminster Harriers after leaving Stockport County.

Another talented forward is on the move - Maidstone United have signed striker Alfie Pavey, who used to play for the Stones’ academy.

AFC Telford United have made a very exciting move - the Bucks have announced the return of Elliott Durrell.

Hereford have added experienced midfielder James Vincent following his exit from Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

But the Bulls have lost defender Kennedy Digie, who has moved to Altrincham.

Yeovil Town have made strides in the transfer market - former Notts County left-back Jordan Barnett is now a Glover.

Boreham Wood have had a couple of productive days.

Jacob Mendy has signed on after saying goodbye to Wealdstone, while Josh Rees - the free-scoring Aldershot Town midfielder - will be lacing up his boots for Luke Garrard.

They arrived after Chesterfield defender Will Evans put pen to paper for Wood.

Eastleigh manager Ben Strevens has made his move in the market.

Josh Hare, pictured, and Michael Kelly become the Spitfires’ first bit of business this summer.

Energetic midfielder Frank Vincent has arrived to give Notts County some more legs in the middle of the park.

Dagenham & Redbridge have signed Josh Walker following three years at Barnet.

But Josh Payne, Mason Bloomfield and loan star Sam Beard have all committed to the Bees’ cause.

Bromley manager Andy Woodman wants to go one better this season and has made two new purchases.

The south east Londoners have signed Joe Partington and Corey Whitely.

But some players have left for an EFL chance.

Guiseley prospect Nathan Newall has signed for League One Sunderland and is tipped for a big future.

Altrincham midfielder Alistair Smith has signed for National League champions Sutton United, who have also made Bromley defender Joe Kizzi their man.
