THE Seagulls have secured the signature of two more players, including striker Chris Sharp, son of former Everton and Scottish international Graeme, from Stockport County.
The 29-year-old scored 12 goals in 37 appearances for Telford in the Conference and has also had spells with TNS, Hereford and Lincoln and is described by manager Ash Hoskin as “a fantastic signing”.
“It sets the tone for what we are trying to build,” said the manager.
“Chris was impressed with the other signings we’ve made and after talking with him over the weekend and outlining what we want to achieve, he says he is happy to be coming on board a team on the up.”
The club then followed that up by signing former Chester wide man Robbie Booth from Warrington Town.
The 29-year-old Boothjoined Chester City when he was released by Everton in 2004 and became only the second player, after Carl Rutter, to play for both Chester City and the then the reformed Chester FC in 2010.
His other clubs include Southport, Droylsden, Bangor City and Telford.
Head of Recruitment Phil Staley commented: “It is another excellent signing for us – a wide player with good pace and a lot of experience.”
It brings the signings made by the new management team over the last three weeks to nine, with possibily one more to come, while other players have been invited to pre-season training (starting on June 25th) for assessment.
