Dave Frecklington, manager of Vanarama National League North club Gainsborough Trinity, has added two players to his squad ahead of tomorrow`s game against leaders AFC Fylde at the Northolme.
Frecklington has brought in 22-year-old central defender Chris Salt from Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division South side Stamford AFC for a second spell with Trinity and also midfielder Cecil Nyoni from league rivals Alfreton Town.
Salt signed for the Daniels in September 2016 from Toolstation Northern Counties East League side Clipstone.
He began his career at Sheffield United before moving onto Worksop Town, Gainsborough and Buxton.
Zimbabwean Nyoni is a former Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest midfielder who had only joined Alfreton in January.
He had been released from his contract by another National League North outfit, Harrogate Town, and had previously been at Goole AFC.
After coming through the ranks at Wednesday, where made a couple of first-team appearances, he moved on to Forest before having spells at Boston United, Frickley Athletic, Worksop Town, Matlock Town and Stocksbridge.
Trinity host runaway leaders AFC Fylde hoping to earn some points to help keep them in the National League North.
Gainsborough cling onto nineteenth place still, only one point from safety after Worcester City’s draw with Darlington 1883.
Frecklington is focussed and eager to go declaring: “If we can match Fylde for work-rate and desire they will have to do something special to beat us.
“We have to contend with a Fylde team who are flying and looking set for promotion to the National League. It’s going to be very tough but we have to be organised and positive. What is the point in just turning up. Win or lose on Saturday, if the players can come off the pitch and look at themselves in the mirror and say I couldn’t have given any more that’s all we can ask”.
