TRINITY boss Steve Housham is quietly building a squad he believes will finish the job he has started.
The latest acquisition to the Gainsborough Trinity rosta is 20-year-old left back Josh Wilde who has signed for the club on a one-year deal from Evo-Stik Northern Premier League outfit Buxton FC.
While delighted to get Wilde, who was voted Buxton's players' player of the season, Housham admits he is not yet finished and there could be more additions likely to come through the door at the Northolme. "We were trying to get Josh in last season, but it didn't work out for us," said Housham.
"He is an attack-minded full-back and has good pace and a great delivery.
"He is another talented young player who has committed himself to Gainsborough and he will fit into the squad very well. We are delighted to get him."
Housham has also been boosted following the confirmation that Shane Clarke has signed for another year at the Northolme.
The former Lincoln City man was a constant feature of Housham's midfield last season and formed an important partnership with Jonathan D'Laryea in the centre of the park.
"We are really pleased that Shane has signed on for another year," Housham added.
"Shane does not have another job, football is his livelyhood so he had to be sure it was the right deal for him.
"He was excellent for us last season, but did have a bad time with injuries. I believe we will see even more from Shane Clarke next season, especially if he has an injury-free run in the side."
Housham is still looking for players who will improve his side after setting a target of finishing higher than last season's fourth-place in Blue Square Bet North.
Tonight, the Trinity boss, was due to travel to Luton to watch a number of players in a training match.
"We are looking at a few players but we have to get those who are right for Gainsborough Trinity," he said.
"The game that we shall see this evening will include youngsters we want to look at and older players who have been released by their clubs.
"Hopefully we will find someone who could fit into our squad. You never know we could find ourselves a bargain."
