Welwyn Garden City have moved to half their disappointing early season form with three new signings.

The Citizens, who are at home this afternoon (Saturday) to Cirencester Town, start the day third from bottom of the Southern League Division One Central table after one win in four games.

More worryingly is the goals against column, 13 having gone in during those four games and with another eight have been conceded in three cup games.

To that end, manager Marc Weatherstone has brought in defender Manny Olagunju and midfield pair Ruben Marquez and David Martins.

Former Chelmsford City defender Olagunju, 23, has been playing with Coggeshall Town in the Essex Senior League and had a previous spell with Isthmian League Premier Division side Cheshunt.

Irish-born pair Marquez and Martins are both midfielders, although Martins can double up at full-back.

Marquez, 21, has played extensively in the Republic, with games for League of Ireland sides Drogheda United and Athlone Town.

He joins from National League South Chippenham Town.

Martins, who is just 17, is signed from youth football.

All three impressed in a recent trial match at the Pexhurst Stadium.

The Citizens hope to complete a fourth signing early next week, and before Tuesday night's home game with AFC Dunstable.
