Ashington FC manager Steve Bowey is looking to boost his squad this week by signing at least two – possibly three – new players.

Bowey – who celebrated his 44th birthday in midweek – said: “I have two players who have definitely agreed to put pen to paper and there is a possibility that a third could also be on the cards.”

Meanwhile after Tuesday night’s visit to play Blyth Spartans (July 17), Bowey will prepare his outfit for a swift return to face neighbours Bedlington Terriers.

The Durham-born boss was extremely grateful to the Welfare Park outfit for agreeing to a warm up match at short notice at the weekend – and the Colliers – who won 4-0 - will return to face Bedlington for a second time on Friday (July 20) where kick off is 7.30pm.

Bowey said: “We have got a winning mentality and it’s all about getting into good habits.”

We have only conceded one goal in three games but it will be a different kettle of fish against Spartans. However it will give us a yardstick as to where we are.”
