TILBURY FC manager Marc Harrison has announced four new signings as he and assistant Liam Wallace lay their plans for a new season back in the Isthmian North.

Last season's Essex Senior League champions recently said farewell to four players from the title winning squad, with Alex Clark, Harvey Browne, Tom Salter and Roman Campbell leaving Chadfields.

Harrison paid tribute to them, saying: "None will be forgotten for their determination, skill and effort."

However, he and Wallace have wasted little time in replacing them - and more signings are expected to be announced shortly.

They will join newcomers Sam Bantick, brothers Jordan and Lewis Clark and striker Lewis Manor.

Bantick is well-known in Thurrock, having been a prolific scorer for Dockers' neighbours Grays Athletic,

Jordan Clark joins Tilbury after six years with Hornchurch where he helped the Urchins win promotion and the FA Trophy, while twin brother Lewis is another who played for Grays, though he captained Redbridge last season.

Manor numbers Dartford and Hornchurch among his previous clubs. He made his name in local non-League circles at Bowers & Pitsea, where he remains the club's record goalscorer.

Off the pitch Tilbury have also strengthened their ranks by recruiting Chris Lipman as head of operations. The businessman and local Olympian and Senior league player has been connected as a sponsor at Dagenham and Redbridge in recent seasons but is now anticipating making an impact with the resurgent Dockers.
