HORSHAM manager Simon Colbran will attempt to bring in three new faces who could help the Hornets become one of the Ryman Division 1 South contenders next season.

Colbran has already brought young forwardss Kaiyne Woolery and Billy Medlock, and much travelled frontman Chamal Fenelon to Horsham, as well as an unnamed left back. And he is excited about the possible new additions.

He said: “There are three really big signings on the cards, if we can get these three in I will be happy with what we have got here, and we can really go for the top half of the table, and possibly push for more than that.”

Former Worthing boss Colbran has also admitted Fenelon’s arrival was a ‘gamble’ but if it comes off he will give Horsham the edge.

“I had Chamal at Worthing, and when he is fit, is on his game, and his head is right, he is unstoppable,” Colbran said.

“He is a big lad, people find it very difficult to mark him, and he gives other people space because people often try to put two players on him.

“I felt last year, although we worked very hard, we lacked a player who had that bit of presence about them. We were a little bit too nice at times, I don’t want players to be dirty but to be strong and show a bit more experience at the right times.”
