HORSHAM manager Simon Colbran will bring in four new signings as he bids to avoid free-fall at the end of the season.

Defender Charlie Farmer made his debut on Tuesday in the Ryman Premier Division defeat to Aveley, and there will be three more new faces available for this Saturday’s trip to Billericay.

They are headed by former Eastbourne Borough striker Andy Atkin who has Conference Premier experience, former Horsham central midfielder Scott Harris, returning from Redhill for his second spell at the club, and Colbran’s assistant manager Wayne Clark who can play either in midfield or up front.

New boss Colbran, who took over last week, said: “We have only 14 in the squad at the moment because George Landais is moving to Sweden to play over there so with the four new guys coming in this week I think we will need just another two more to take the squad up to 20 which is what you need at this level.

“We are not staying up. I am here to steady the ship as when you get relegated there is the danger of going into free-fall.

“I would like us to be safely in midtable next year and will be aiming to win every game. My starting work now rather than at the end of the season gives us a head start.”
