Horsham FC manager Simon Colbran has added three new faces to his squad ahead of this weekend’s first pre-season friendlies.

Towering French striker or defender Enddy Nerplat, who spent three years at top flight St Etienne, signed forms, along with former Crawley striker/wideman Mithun Nayee, also 21, and Martin Mtunde, a young left midfielder from Three Bridges.

Colbran said of 6ft 3in Nerplat: “He’s a big strong lad who will give us something different.We’ve got 17 signed on and I’m looking for 20 so we are nearly there.”

The Hornets will play a double header on Saturday, sending teams to Steyning Town and Whitehawk.
