Manager Neal Simmons has signed former Lowestoft Town captain Rossi Jarvis – plus he should have Joe Gatting back for Saturday’s trip to Ware and another prolific marksman, Jamie Forshaw, is on course to play a part in Monday’s home game against Soham Town Rangers (3pm).

“To sign a player of Rossi’s calibre is a major coup for the club and I am looking forward to working with him and welcoming him into the squad,” said Simmons. “I would like to thank the club for supporting me with this signing at such an important time of the season.”

Gatting and Forshaw will add firepower up front.

“I am delighted to have such experienced players back for the run-in,” said Simmons. “We have had a little blip lately, but our fantastic early-season form has allowed us to still be in the mix with 27 points to play for – exciting times for players, staff, supporters and those who work tirelessly behind the scenes.”
