Three Bridges are planning to get their first ever season in the Ryman League South back on track with three new signings and a coach.

They are currently five points adrift at the bottom of the league after notching up just four wins and 15 points from 23 matches since clinching promotion as Sussex County League champions.

The new recruits are: former Crawley Town Academy coach Adam Simpson, former Crawley Town Under-18s player Romone McCrea who was part of a big money sale to Peterborough, former Reds Youth team-mate Moshood Olafunmshe who is a centre half and ex-Lewes goalkeeper Pav Szelemej.

Manager Paul Faili said: “Adam Simpson has brought in a more professional approach which is what we need to stay in the Ryman League.

“His track record at Crawley was tremendous working with Steve Evans and the boys have already reacted to him very positively. In the 10 days he’s been here he’s worked wonders for us.

“Our new signings all look really good and I’m looking forward to them helping us rise up the table.”
