Meanwhile, the Robins have swooped to sign striker Ashley Edenborough from fellow Southern League Division One South & West side Swindon Supermarine.

Edenborough has also played for Fairford Town, Chippenham Town and Cirencester Town.

Defenders Jamie Sauntson and Will Wellon have both agreed to remain at Evesham for the 2014/15 season.
