Lee Bradbury, manager of Ryman League Premier Division champions Havant & Waterlooville, has announced early details on his squad as they make their return to the Vanarama National League South.
Experienced midfielder Brian Stock has signed a one-year extension to his contract with the Hawks.
Bradbury said: “It`s good to keep the club captain here. He is a very influential player both on and off the pitch. He really drives the standards of the players every week and so a great signing for us.”
Defender Rory Williams has signed a two-year deal.
Bradbury added: “To have our player of the year commit his future to us is very positive news.”
Mike Carter, nicknamed ‘The Enforcer’, is another positive signing for the Hawks, agreeing a new two-year contract.
Another midfielder, Bradley Tarbuck, has signed a two-year deal after the talented, up and coming youngster, did really well for Bradbury`s side last season.
Defender Ed Harris signed a new two-year deal to stay at Westleigh Park, and as Bradbury said: “Again, Ed`s another signing I’m really pleased with. Ed is back at his best after his bad injury which kept him out for a season, the club stood by him and he stood by us, being out of contract and having a strong season for us, he’s decided to stay with us which shows the character he is, again another great signing for us.”
Bradbury also announced that goalkeeper Ryan Young had signed a further one-year deal to remain at Westleigh Park.
Players that are still under contract with the Hawks are Alfie Rutherford, Wes Fogden, Jason Prior and Ryan Woodford.
