Hoole brings in defensive reinforcement.

The Cobras have secured the services of the talented defender Kieran Blades from Selston F.C.

Coming in on a duel reg from Belper Town, Kieran Blades will likely go straight into tomorrows squad to face Sherwood Colliery and becomes Dave Hoole’s first signing of the new year.

Of the arrival of the centre-half, boss Hoole remarked: “We’ve been on the look out for a central defender who has played extensively at step 6 and above and who possesses the qualities and characteristics to fit in with our group.

“Kieran will undoubtedly strengthen us, he’s a calm influence and every manager who I have spoken to about him says he is an outstanding player and will offer 100 per cent commitment, on and off the pitch.

“He had other opportunities to pursue, but I am delighted we have managed to tempt him to the Lido Ground.

“I’d like to thank Grant Black and the Belper team for the smooth transition.”
