Godalming Town were relegated to Step 5 at the end of last season and were one of the pre-season favourites to do well in the Cherry Red Records Combined Counties League Premier Division this season.

It hasn’t worked out that way though and the club remains in danger of slipping down a further rung into Division One.

There has though been a recent change in their management structure with well-known locals Jon Palmer and Gavin Smith assuming the hot-seat and they have certainly not let the grass grow under their feet.

They have added five new players this week, with possibly the most significant being striker Kieran Campbell, who has arrived from league rivals Guildford City.

Campbell initially signed for City as a goalkeeper having donned the gloves for Epsom & Ewell, Dorking Wanderers, Chipstead and South Park.

He transformed himself into a prolific striker, scoring 35 goals in spells at Division One clubs Cobham, South Park reserves and Redhill.

Also joining are Benga Ogunseye, another forward, and Ainsley Everitt from CCL Division One side Badshot Lea.

Ogunseye numbers Holmesdale and FC Elmstead amongst his former clubs, while Everitt started out at Dartford and has also played for Thamesmead Town and Farnborough.

Jack Howard joins from another CCL Division One outfit, Ash United, and was previously with Lingfield, while Lea Van Sullivan and Shaun Smart have joined from league rivals Walton & Hersham.

Van Sullivan, 23, is a defender who, after being at Kingstonian, Walton Casuals, Sheerwater and Banstead Athletic, joined the Swans in December 2015 from Redhill.

He was last season`s player, players and managers` player of the season.

Defender made his debut for the Swans last season. He has previously been at Guildford City, Egham Town and Hanworth Villa.
