Defender Robbie Blackwell, central midfielder Ryan Edgar, striker Eddie Hart and defender/midfielder James Hawes have all put pen-to-paper as manager Steve Tilson looks to finalise a squad ready for the new season.
Blackwell is a 22-year-old defender who joined West Ham United in 2005, going on to become a regular in their under-18 side during 2007/08.
He spent time at Colchester United on `work experience` and also at his home-town club, Billericay Town.
Edgar joins the club for his third spell having originally been part of the reserve side that stepped up into the first-team in 2006/07, winning the Ryman Division One North play-off final with the club the following season.
He went on to play for the likes of Histon, Enfield Town, and most recently Brentwood Town.
He was capped at international level for Dominica - playing in two CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying matches against Barbados in 2008.
Hart scored regularly in the Essex Senior League with Southend Manor and last year in the Ryman Division One North with Redbridge.
Hawes is comfortable either in defence or midfield and signed after a successful trial period.
He won the Ryman Premier Division with Billericay Town in 2012 but was forced to stay at Ryman level due to work commitments.
He has previously played for Sutton United, Braintree Town and Concord Rangers.
