Experienced Julian Lawrence is the latest player to put pen-to-paper for Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division club Rainworth Miners Welfare.

The 24-year-old has joined after playing Evo-Stik League Premier football with Frickley Athletic last season.

Primarily a central defender, Lawrence, who also turned out last season for NCEL side Worksop Town, is also capable of playing central midfield or centre forward and numbers Goole AFC and Stocksbridge Park Steels amongst his other former clubs.

Lawrence is not the only player to have joined from an NPL Premier club, for former Ilkeston FC midfielder Shomari Doyle has also signed up after being with Buxton last season.

Meanwhile, left-back Brad Wilson has re-joined the Wrens after a year with league rivals AFC Mansfield and, as manager Craig Denton looks to tighten up a defence which conceded too many goals last season, he has also recruited former Sheffield FC back player Tim Whittaker from NCEL First Division side Hallam.

Goalkeeper Ben Townsend is one of five of last season’s squad to have signed up for this season, along with Jordan Claxton, Thomas Poole, Rob Ludlum and Ryan Herbert.
