Midfielders Calvin Dinsley and Tom Richards have both checked into Lodge Road.

Dinsley is known to Beadle, having played under him at Hereford.

The 31-year-old had re-joined Southern Division One South side Evesham United in June 2020 from Yate’s league rivals Swindon Supermarine.

He had joined `Marine at the end of February 2019 from the Vanaram National League North Bulls.

He had joined Hereford from Gloucester City in March 2017 having previously had a month’s loan with them.

He has played most of his football in the National and Southern Leagues having also been with Kidderminster Harriers and Redditch United.

He started his career in the youth team at West Bromwich Albion before having short spells with Cambridge United, Evesham and Stourport Swifts.

After helping Hereford to two championship titles, he played 17 times for them in 2018/19 but found it difficult to recover his place in the side of a couple of niggling injuries and decided to move on.

Richards arrives from National League South side Bath City, where he had been since late July 2019, making over 70 appearances and scoring 6 goals.

The 23-year-old had been part of Championship neighbours Bristol City`s under-23 development squad and spent time on loan at then-National League South side Truro City in 2018/19, playing 17 times, whilst on the books at Ashton Gate.
