Daventry Town boss Darran Foster has this week made three new signings to boost his squad, and confirmed the departure of midfielder Adam Confue to UCL side AFC Rushden & Diamonds.

The new signings are striker Mitchell Piggon, midfielder Josh Cole and utility defender Nathan Haines.

Scoring goals was a real problem for Daventry Town last season, so Foster is delighted to have secured the signature of former Bedworth United and Rugby Town front man Mitchell, who is 23 and has been a consistent and experienced goal scorer at Southern League level for a number of seasons.

Having lost Confue, Foster was been keen to back up his midfield with another central player and is delighted to announce the capture of 25-year-old former Banbury United man Cole.

Foster said: “Josh is very physical in the tackle and he has a great engine.

“He will be able to break up opposition play in the centre of the field and create openings for us to push forward.”

The third new recruit is defender Haines, who is also 23, and has signed from promotion rivals Rugby Town.

Haines is a centre back who can also feature at left back.

Foster said: “We need to strengthen our options at the back, our established and experienced back four will be made stronger by the presence of Nathan in the squad.”

Foster is also in talks with three other key targets.
