WORKSOP Town have made their first two signings for the 2011/12 season, with the addition of striker Danny Davidson and winger Sam Duncum.

Giant forward Davidson has moved to the club from Boston United. The 6ft 5ins front man previously featured for Alfreton and Eastwood, and was a major target for Tigers boss Martin McIntosh.

Second signing Duncum is not a new face for Worksop Town fans, having joined the club on loan twice last season, although the winger was thwarted by a number of postponed fixtures and an injury late in the season.

Off the field, the club have confirmed that CEG, the developers of the Vesuvius site, have submitted a planning application to the new Bassetlaw Council, including a stadium for the football club.

Tigers owner Jason Clark released a statement, saying: “I am optimistic about the outcome here. though until we kick a ball on the new stadium I wont feel as if it is really true given everything we have been through to get this far.”

“In the not too distant future I expect to have plans prepared, and a contract signed. There are already outline plans being drawn up which I am impressed with, and a heads of agreement has been formalised. We will then be in the hands of the council and the planning committee, to ensure the whole proposal is approved, and that the stadium is secured as a mandatory component.”

Clark hopes that the stadium will be ready for the 2014 football season, and revealed that CEG have committed a sum of money to the project in order to build a stadium capable of hosting Conference North football.
