Drury has made midfielder Sam Ives the first signing of his second Daniels reign. Ives had a brief spell at Corby Town under Drury last season and is also a former Cambridge United player.
Drury has also persuaded winger Tyrone Kirk and utility man Robbie Maddox - who were both involved in his last stint as Stamford boss - to remain at the club.
Drury enthused: "Tyrone and I know each other well and I'm delighted to be working with him again at the club I introduced him to.
"Tyrone and I have discussed his wish to play at a higher level and agreed hard work and creative, impressive performances in a Daniels shirt will help him achieve his goal."
Twenty-year-old attacking midfielder Ives joins after impressing Drury whilst at Corby Town, scoring four goals in fourteen appearances for the Steelmen.
Cambridge-based Ives has also played for Cambridge United, for whom he made forty-three appearances.
Drury added: "I rate Sam highly and had to reluctantly let him leave Corby last season.
"Sam is a talented player and I am so pleased he has decided to sign for us whilst assessing opportunities at other clubs."
Maddox signed following discussions with Drury last weekend.
Drury commented: "I am really pleased to secure Robbie. I worked with him previously when winning his player of the year award at the club.
"I know what Robbie is capable of and how to manage him to maximise his performnaces.
"Robbie will add competition to midfield and offers a utility role if needed."
