We are extremely pleased to announce that David Bridges will be joining Matt Clements' management team for the forthcoming 2017/18. Below is a brief resume of david's career, courtesy of Wikipedia    David Stephen Bridges (born 22 September 1982) is an English footballer who most recently played for King's Lynn Town as a midfielder and was also First Team Coach. Bridges started his career with local side Cambridge United, progressing through the club's youth system and eventually breaking into the first-team in 2001. He spent three seasons at Cambridge, but was released at the end of the 2003–04 season after failing to agree terms on a new contract. Bridges had a brief spell in Latvia playing for FK Rīga, before returning to England to play four games for Braintree Town in January 2005. He joined Histon in March 2005, playing for the club until the end of the season. He left Histon at the end of the season, and subsequently earned himself a one-year contract to rejoin Cambridge United in July 2005. He played regularly for the club for two seasons, but was released again in 2007. Bridges then joined Kettering Town ahead of the 2007–08 season, playing an important part in the club achieving promotion from the Conference North to the Conference National in his first season at the club. At the end of the season he rejected a contract offer from Kettering and joined Stevenage on a free transfer. In his first season at the Hertfordshire club, he helped the side to FA Trophy success, as well as helping the club earn promotion to the Football League for the first time in the club's history the following season. He was also part of the squad that helped Stevenage earn back-to-back promotions during the 2010–11 season. Ahead of the 2011–12 campaign, Bridges re-joined Conference National side Kettering Town. He left the club after one season, and spent a year at Chelmsford City, before signing for Bury Town in May 2013.

We are pleased to announce that both Lee Clarke and Tom Wood have committed themselves to The Saints for the 2017/18 season.  Lee, after suffering a serious achilles injury during the last game of the 2015/16 season, fought his way back to fitness and made 12 starts at the back end of the season and another 5 appearances, coming on from the substitutes bench and scored 2 very important goals in the process. Tom, who during the season was converted into a very good centre half, made 44 starts and another 5 appearances from the bench, scoring 3 goals in the process. We look forward to seeing both lads in the blue shirts again next season and thank them for their early commitment to being part of manager Matt Clement's plans

We are pleased to announce the signing of striker Lewis Wilson. Lewis joins the Saints from Evostik First Division South side AFC Rushden And Diamonds. Saints fans may remember Lewis' previous spell at the Club under the Abbey Brothers and Gary King where we saw glimpses of what he had to offer during what was a frustrating period for him with little opportunity given on the pitch.  Wilson joined Rushden & Diamonds after a successful trial in 2009, after he had been spotted playing for Newport Pagnell Town. He started a two-year scholarship and was a regular in the youth team, scoring 16 goals in his first year. In his second year, Wilson featured twice for the first team in the Northamptonshire Senior Cup against Daventry United and Brackley Town. He also joined Newport Pagnell and Northampton Spencer on work-experience. In the summer of 2011, Wilson was released and rejoined UCL Premier side Newport Pagnell Town. He made his debut in August 2011, in a 3–0 defeat to Boston Town. In January 2012, Wilson joined Football League Two side Northampton Town on a contract until the end of the season, after impressing on a one-week trial. He made his debut for the Cobblers on 17 April 2012 in a 3–1 defeat to Crawley Town, coming on as a substitute for Jake Robinson. His first goal and start came in a 1–1 draw with Gillingham. On 30 April, Wilson signed a one-year professional contract. In November 2012, he joined Kettering Town on loan until 2 January 2013. Since then, he has also numbered Oxford City and Arlesey Town as well as ourselves and AFCR&D as previous clubs. Please join us in welcoming Lewis (pictured right in action for AFCR&D) back to the Club and wish him al the very best of luck in what will be a much happier stay for him.

The Club are pleased to announce that Shane Hill and Luke Brown have signed for the Saints. Shane Hill (pictured right) began his career as a trialist for Manchester United as a 16-year-old, but was not taken on by the superclub, and eventually found his way to non-league Hitchin Town, playing for them in the Southern Football League Premier Division, the seventh level of English football, in the 2004-2005 season. Hill joined Sheffield United as a youth player on 25 August 2005, but was released at the end of the 2005-06 having never played a first team game for the Blades. He trialed with Luton Town during the summer of 2006, but was not offered a contract, and eventually signed for Rushden & Diamonds of the Football Conference on 4 January 2007. He was released by the Diamonds at the end of the season, again without having made a first team appearance for the club. Shane moved to the United States in 2010 and was a pre-season trialist with FC Tampa Bay prior to their first competitive season in the USSF Division 2 Pro League. When his father was hired as the head coach of the club in 2011, Hill returned to the United States, trialed with the team during the 2011 pre-season, and signed a formal contract on 6 April 2011. He made his debut for Tampa on 31 May, coming on as a late substitute in a game against NSC Minnesota Stars. Tampa Bay announced on 27 December 2011 that it declined the 2012 contract option for Hill.   However, one month later the club signed him to a new contract for 2012 which includes a club option for 2013. The son of former Luton Town legend and England international Ricky Hill, Shane brings quality and experience to the team both on and off the field and also a physical presence married with a cool head.   Also joining us is Striker Luke Brown, who joins us for the rest of the season. Luke is a natural finisher and having previously worked with Matt Clements, it is hoped he will add competition for a starting berth amongst our forward line   Both players are available for selection for tomorrow's home game with Basingstoke Town   Please join us in welcoming both Shane and Luke to the Club and we wish both players a successful stay with us

We are pleased to announce that three more players have joined the Saints. Firstly signing on the dotted line is striker James Tricks, who joins us in a permanent deal from Boston Town, who he recently joined from Daventry Town, having spent a spell at Cambridge City earlier this season. Also joining us on loan are young Cambridge United pair Tom Knowles (midfield) and Fernando Bell-Toxtle (Striker). Both players have been instrumental in the U's successful FA Youth Cup run this season. All three players are available to join up with the First Team squad for tomorrow's trip to Chesham United. Please join us in welcoming the lads and we wish them the very best of luck and hope their time with us will be enjoyable and successful.
