Evo-Stik League South club Spalding United have swooped for three new players in recent days.

Conor Marshall joins from league rivals Corby Town, while Jacob Fletcher and Keegan Townrow arrive from Doncaster Rovers on `work experience`.

Marshall began his career as a teenager with Grimsby Town and was close to being awarded a professional contract in the summer of 2011 but after much deliberation was released by the Mariners in August 2011.

He then joined Brigg Town and his impressive displays at full-back for the Zebras saw him move to Boston United in January 2012.

Whilst at Boston, Marshall was converted from full-back to a defensive midfield during the 2013/14 campaign with considerable success.

He joined King`s Lynn Town on loan in March 2015 and made the move permanent at the start of 2015/16.

He showed excellent form for the Linnets before limping off during an Emirates FA Cup tie at Barwell in October 2015.

Two months later it was confirmed that he required major surgery to repair the damaged cruciate ligament in his knee.

The road back to fitness was a long and frustrating one, but he was finally given a clean bill of health in January 2017 and returned to first-team action in the final few games of last season.

He was invited back to join pre-season training at King`s Lynn but in May 2017, the 25-year-old opted to kick-start his career at Corby.

The Tulips have also brought in two players from SkyBet League One side Doncaster Rovers` academy.

Fletcher joined Doncaster last year and has actually been given a first-team squad number this season.

The forward has featured for Rovers in Carabao Cup ties.

Defender Townrow joined the Rovers academy at the same time as Fletcher but as yet hasn`t managed to find his way into Darren Ferguson`s senior side.
