Cinderford Town have confirmed the signing of Simon Prangley, Ben Fletcher, Lee Hartshorn and, as already reported, Louis Feeley, ahead of their debut season in the Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division.
Feeley is a creative wide midfielder who has previously played for Hereford FC, Newport County, Weston-super-Mare, Clevedon Town, Chepstow and Barry Town
Hartshorn is a central defender who has played for Llanelli, Afan Lido, Chepstown Town, Aberbargoed and Merthyr Town and will be vying for a place alongside club captain Josh Nelmes.
Fletcher will replace outgoing Alex Harris as the club`s goalkeeper and has previously played for Chepstow Town, Llanwern and Porth.
Foresters` fans will remember Prangley after a successful spell at the club under Steve Peters where he became a fans` favourite.
Prangley said “It`s great to be back at this great club and working with such good people, from the management, coaching staff, down to the fans and all the people involved with the club.”
“The chance for me to come back here and play under Chris Burns and Allan Gough is amazing. There is a good buzz around the lads after everything that’s gone on since last season`s title-winning heroics.
“The aim now for us as individuals and more so as team-mates is to give 110% to fight for the club to stay in this environment and maybe kick on higher over the next couple of years.”
Chairman Stuart Tait was delighted to confirm the signing of all four players: “We’re really pleased to confirm all four players for the upcoming season. The squad is really starting to take shape after a difficult summer and can’t wait to see all four players in action.
“We’re confident that we will have a competitive side going into what will be the highest league the club has ever played in during its history”.
