.....of goalkeeper Lance Cronin and winger Peter Winn.
Cronin began his career with Brighton before moving to Crystal Palace, still as a junior. It was here he made his senior debut as a 19-year-old during a loan spell with Wycombe in 2005.
At the end of that season he left London to join Oldham before moving to Shrewsbury as cover for Joe Hart later that season.
That summer he left Oldham and joined up with Ebbsfleet United, where he instantly became a first team regular. He finished the 2006/07 season as an almost ever-present as the side finished just outside the play-offs and would remain firmly installed as the clubs 'number one' for his four seasons with the side.
His reputation as a top 'keeper at Conference level was sealed when he was selected for the England 'C' side to face Holland that year and helped the side to lift the Challenge Trophy. He was a regular in the international set-up from that point until moving into the Football League two years ago.
The following season saw him help the side to an eleventh place finish, but the highlight was a 1-0 win at Wembley to win the FA Trophy.
They came close to Wembley again the following season as they were beaten only on aggregate in the semi-final by Stevenage as he was again a regular in the side for the whole season.
Another forty-four matches in the 2009/10 season saw the 'keeper, then still only 24 attracting League attention and after almost 200 Conference, FA Cup and FA Trophy matches for Ebbsfleet, he moved to Gillingham.
He remained with the Gills for a season, making eight appearances before leaving for Bristol Rovers last summer. Finding opportunities hard to come by with the form of Scott Bevan, he ended the season back at Ebbsfleet for the last months of the campaign.
Former Stevenage player Winn joins on a two-year deal.
The quick player can play either on the wing or up front and was a regular member of the Stevenage side who were promoted from League Two the season before last.
His early career took place at Scunthorpe which saw him making four Championship appearances for the club, Winn added experience with loan spells at Northwich Victoria - where he played under Steve King - in the 2008/09 season before loans with Barrow AFC and Gateshead.
He left Scunthorpe in the summer of 2010 to join Stevenage's first season in the Football League, and making his League debut against the Silkmen on opening day.
He went on to play thirty-three times in all competitions as Stevenage were promoted via the play-offs, but his highlight came in the FA Cup where he netted the third against Newcastle United in Stevenage's famous 3-1 win.
Last season saw him spending more time on loan, again in the Conference as he first joined Cambridge United before finishing the season with his home-town club Grimsby Town.
