Shirebrook Town manager Kevin Gee is looking to bring an attacker to the club, following the departure of Danny Wiltshire to AFC Mansfield.

The Northern Counties East League Division One side are unbeaten in their last five games, winning three, ahead of Saturday’s trip to neighbours Dronfield Town.

Gee said: “After last Saturday’s game, unused substitute Danny Wiltshire decided to join AFC Mansfield, so I will need to bring in another attack-minded player before next Saturday, but they will have to be the right player coming in for the right reasons.

“To be fair, there is a lot interest at the minute from players wanting to come to the club for different reasons, especially when some of the bigger clubs unfortunately decide to break with early season promises due to their current league positions and radically reduce players wages, which is wrong but it happens all the time at this time of year.

“But it does give us a chance to bring a few such players in as we have a more stable financial position, albeit at lower levels.

“So we prepare ourselves now for three tough games in seven days, starting at Dronfield on Saturday, which will be a difficult game as they are now settling down after promotion last year.

“But we are going into the busy festive period with a bit of momentum and as long as we continue to improve and turn solid performances from draws into wins, then it will give us a good platform by the end of December to have a real go in the second half of the season.”
