Stamford AFC have bolstered their defence with the signing of two defenders and a goalkeeper.

Joining the Daniels for the 2014/15 season will be full-back Ellis Myles, defender Ryan Clarke, and goalkeeper Andy Stevens.

Myles joins from Rugby having previously been at Leicester City and Brackley Town.

Stevens featured for the Daniels last season during the FA Cup run and Clarke comes straight from Kings Lynn, having also featured for Boston United, Worcester City and Worksop.

Manager David Staff is delighted with all three signings.

Staff said: “The three lads will offer us experience and quality in the defensive positions.

“Ellis is a real dynamic full back and gives us an option at full back we missed last season. Ryan Clarke comes and offers genuine experience and quality. He’s a lad I’ve known for some time and is incredibly consistent and versatile so is a really good addition.

“Andy Stevens, is now able to commit due to a change in work circumstances and is a quality keeper with experience at this level and beyond.”

Stamford have also added an extra pre-season fixture, they will play away at Harborough Town on Saturday July 19 at 3pm.

The Daniels will also play Histon at home on July 15 in the first of six pre-season fixtures.

Stamford will take on rivals Blackstones away on July 22 before playing Gateshead at home on July 26 and Loughborough Dynamo away on July 29.

With the season fast approaching Stamford will then take on Bourne Town on August 2 at the Abbey Lawn and finally face Coalville Town at home on August 9.
