THE merry-go-round that is the Halesowen Town squad seems to be showing no sign of slowing down after manager Morrell Maison added three more players, released one and put a seven day approach in for another in the space of five days.

The Yeltz boss has bought in right-sided midfielder Ruben Wiggins-Thomas from Hucknall Town having previously been at Chesterfield.

Scott Lycett, a 20-year-old right-sided player who was released by Leicester City in the summer and midfielder Ludovic Quistan who had started the season at Boston United have also joined.

The new additions bring Maison's new signings up to 11 in just over a month.

Meanwhile, leaving the Grove after a touch-line bust-up with Maison is former skipper Lee Williams.

The released Williams has joined up with former boss Paul Holleran at Rushall Olympic temporarily before a switch to Bromsgrove Rovers where he will join up with recently departed Yeltz stalwart Gary Knight.

The out with the old and in with the young approach is one Maison believes is necessary if his side are to achieve their long term goals.

He said: "The three new signings are players who have impressed me in the past and tick all the right boxes for the sort of player we are looking for.

"They are young and talented who will hopefully be able kick start a long and succesful football career here with us, while Gary Knight and Lee Williams are both in their mid thirties who are now coming towards the end of their careers.

"I'm trying to build for the future here and with the players I have been able to bring in, if we were to get promoted into the Conference North we would have a strong base to build on."

Maison believes he's still short of the quality needed and hopes to bring in three or possibly four players within the next week.

One target is Bromsgrove Rovers left winger Matt Birley (pictured below) who starred for the Greens during their 2-1 defeat at the Grove last week.

Maison was so impressed with the ex-Birmingham City trainee, that he has put a seven day approach in for the player and will be allowed to open talks with the youngster early next week.

Although Maison is unsure on how talks will go Bromsgrove boss Rod Brown is pretty convinced his talented wide man will not be making the move to their BGB Premier Division rivals.

He said: "As far as I am concerned Matt Birley is not going anywhere.

"He won't leave Rovers unless it is for a full-time club."

Despite the fact that the Halesowen dressing room seems to be having more comings and goings than Heathrow Airport the team seem to be finding form just at the right time.

On Saturday the Yeltz moved into the top ten following a 4-1 win at home to Rugby Town.

On scoresheet were Dean Brennan, Eldon Maquemba, Zema Abbey and Paul Devlin who was later sent off.

The Yeltz will now aim to make it three league wins on the bounce when they travel to Clevedon Town this Saturday before they travel across the borough to face Stourbridge on Tuesday in the Worcestershire Senior Cup l Causeway United are celebrating after making it through to the third round of the FA Vase following a 1-0 replay win over Alvechurch.

United will now face Boston Town at the War Memorial next month.

Before then they return to Midland Alliance on Saturday when travel to big spending Shifnal.

Cradley Town were not so fortunate as they were dumped out the competition away at Gelding 2-1 with James Carvey scoring a consolation goal.

The Midland Alliance's bottom side will return to league action this Saturday in search of their second league win of the season when they host Market Drayton.
