Dean Barker has made three more signings before his fascinating first game as Welwyn Garden City manager.

His arrival as a replacement for Adam Fisher came at the same time as almost all of the first-team squad walked out.

It has meant a rapid rebuilding of the ranks at the Southern League Division One Central side with the former Cockfosters and Northwood boss bringing an incredible 10 players yesterday.

The final three names are Ned Clarke, a striker who Barker signed while he was U23 boss at Wingate & Finchley, James Mays, a midfielder who has played for Cheshunt and Ware, and Ed Port, a left winger from Windsor.

Barker will also promote two of the youth squad, goalkeeper Dom Bannon and Brodie Carrington.

He had hoped to persuade some of the old squad to return and early indications five were set to do so.

However, with the game against Sutton Coldfield Town tonight (Tuesday) fast approaching, nothing has been confirmed.

The kick-off at Herns Lane is at 7.45pm.
