Former Cheltenham Town youth and Slimbridge number one Eric Edge (pictured) is poised to fill the gap left by Clayton as the Mitres bid to secure an immediate return to the Southern League after relegation last term.

Edge has also played in the USA for Dodge City and FC Miami City, returns to Kayte Lane after a previous spell in Cleeve's Gloucestershire County League reserve team.

Debut Denied In FA Cup Opener - 10 August

henry birkett hellenic football leagueHenry Birkett will not be able to make his debut for new club Bishop's Cleeve in their Emirates FA Cup Extra Preliminary round home tie against Stotfold tomorrow (3pm).

Jon Palmer writes in the Gloucestershire Echo. The former Tuffley Rovers, Hardwicke, Quedgeley Wanderers midfielder agreed to sign for the Mitres on Tuesday night, watching their 2-0 Hellenic League Premier Division win at Brimscombe & Thrupp.

But Southern League Slimbridge are holding out for a seven day approach, so Birkett will have to wait before he can don a Cleeve shirt for the first time. Boss Steve Cleal will also be without midfielder Ash Davies and forward Ieuan Crowe, who are both injured.

Meanwhile, left-back Tris Haswell will undergo surgery to repair a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament on September 19 and is targeting a return to action for the start of the 2019/20 campaign.
