NEW boss Rob Smith has wasted no time in starting his Halesowen Town rebuilding job.

The former Hednesford manager, who replaced John Hill at the Grove last week, has bolstered his squad with a host of fresh faces.

Full-back Joel Taylor and attacking midfielder Liam Truslove have all arrived on loan from National League North neighbours Kidderminster Harriers. Young Reds defender Harry Higginson has also signed.

Smith has secured the short-term services of striker Dan Sweeney from Solihull Moors while Callum Mendez-Jones signed from Hednesford to link up with his former boss.

Smith said: "It was clear that we needed to get players in and that is what we have done.

"That is what we will continue to do until we get it right.

"The players that have come in have good quality and should be able to improve us.

"We don't have much in the pipeline ahead of the weekend because you have to wait for the seven days notices to go through, but we are still looking to add more."

Yeltz lost 2-0 at home to Stratford last Saturday for Smith's first game in charge but battled to a 1-1 draw with Alvechurch on Tuesday night.

Hales had led through Lewis Reilly before Church struck late to share the spoils.

"I'd have taken a point before the game but it's always difficult when you conceded so late," added Smith.

"Alvechurch did really well and are a good side but we defended well and certainly improved from Saturday.

"We still haven't had a training session yet so we'll do that this week and hopefully we can improve again."

The Yeltz will now welcome Tamworth to the Grove as they look to get back to winning ways.

They are set to be without new signings Liam Truslove (foot) and Mendez-Jones (hamstring). Truslove broke his foot and is now facing over a month on the sidelines while Mendes-Jones will have his injury assessed this week.
