Matt Dodd returns, and two more new signings arrive!

By Richard Clark

We are delighted to announce that winger Matt Dodd has re-signed for Stourbridge after a brief spell with Hednesford Town.

Matt moved to Hednesford in the summer after spending the previous two seasons with the Glassboys.

He made a total of 85 appearances for the Club, scoring nine goals, and was instrumental in our FA Cup runs to the Second and Third Rounds in the last two seasons.

Matt made just six appearances for Hednesford in his stint at Keys Park, scoring twice, including the only goal of the game in their 1-0 derby win at Stafford Rangers on Bank Holiday Monday.

Speaking to the website, manager Gary Hackett told us, “I’m absolutely delighted to have Matt back, and he’s delighted to be back himself. He gives us something extra that we’ve perhaps been lacking so far this season.”

Although Matt is not Cup-tied, his signing was not completed in time to be eligible for Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup tie at Loughborough Dynamo, or for any possible replay. He would, however, be eligible for future ties should we progress.

We are also pleased to announce the signings of wide man Pierce Kiembi and midfielder Alex Solomon.

Pierce, who had a run-out for us in pre-season two seasons ago, has most recently been with Chasetown, and numbers Bedworth United, Worcester City, Daventry Town and Bayer Leverkusen amongst his former clubs. He can play on either flank and is included in the travelling squad for Saturday’s match

Alex can play in any position across midfield and appeared in a number of pre-season friendlies for the Glassboys, where he impressed with his work-rate.

Both players will provide additional depth for the squad with the current injuries to Kayelden Brown, Connor Gater and Chris Knight restricting Gary’s options.
