The club are delighted to announce the signing of commanding central defender, Claudiu Vilcu.

Claudiu was part of the Wingate & Finchley side that ended last season in the last playoff place in the Ryman League last season, however they were unable to find a way past eventual playoff winners Bognor Regis Town.

He left Enfield to sign last season for Bishop's Stortford before joining the Blues in October last year.

Claudiu came to the UK in 2013, and looked to have joined Barnet, but the Bees application for a work permit wasn't granted, and the defender joined FC Romania and Banbury Town as dual registered player, before passing through Cambridge City on his way to the QE2 Stadium in 2015.

Welcome to the club, Claudiu!

After such a great season back in the National League South, Dowse is looking to build up the squad to try and improve on the 7th position he achieved.

Unfortunately, that means he's had to let some players leave the club so he can do this.

After much consideration since the end of the season, the club is regretfully having to say thank you and good luck to the following players:

Jay Gasson, Joe Hicks, Charlie ten-Grotenhuis, Leon Solomon, Stiven Rivic, Shaquille Hippolyte-Patrick and Jermaine Osei.

The club would like to thank them all for all their efforts in the last season, it was appreciated by everyone, and we wish them good luck for the future.

The club are still finalising deals with the rest of the squad so watch out for further news as the deals are confirmed.

In addition, throughout the coming 48 hours, a number of new signings will be announced so keep coming back here to find out who Dowse is bringing in.

Next month will see the clubs go head-to-head in their annual pre-season friendly for the third year running on Saturday 29th July.

It is the second time the Beavers are hosting at The Beveree, and to add to the Sky Sports rivalry between Martin Tyler (also a first team coach at HRBFC) and Gary Neville (one of the owners of SCFC), the two will be playing for The Jacob Sylvester Trophy, in which all proceeds will be donated to Bliss.

The day will also include fun for all the family, including a raffle, bake sale, bouncy castle and much more.

Both teams have already made plenty of announcements and changes over the summer, which have sparked excitement for next season.

Following promotion in 2015/16, Hampton & Richmond Borough reached the National League South playoffs in April, awarding manager Alan Dowson a full-time contract. With new directors in place, the club are looking to build on the success of last year, and start their season with some silverware.

As for Salford...
