Chelmsford City have confirmed the signings of Max Cornhill and Sheldon Sellears from respective league rivals Concord Rangers and Bishop’s Stortford.

The re-building job being carried out by new boss Rod Stringer continues for the upcoming season.

Cornhill re-joins Chelmsford having been at the club between 2011 and 2013 before making the switch to Dartford to play in the then Conference Premier.

Having made sixty-eight appearances for the Darts over two seasons and scoring 9 goals,chelmsford the midfielder asked for his release to pursue regular first-team football and joined Concord Rangers last summer.

The 29-year-old made forty-four appearances for the Beachboys last term, scoring 4 goals.

Sellears is another player to have been plucked from Stringer’s former side, Bishop’s Stortford.

Having started his career at the Blues it wasn’t until the winger joined Aveley where he really began to cut his teeth, winning the young player of the year award in his first full season with the Millers.

His form with the Ryman North side secured him a move to Ryman Premier outfit Canvey Island and his progression continued as he finished the season being named in the Ryman team of the year.

After just one season with the Gulls, Sellears (pictured) got a move to Bishop’s Stortford where he achieved a hat-trick of awards by winning the supporters’ player of the year award for the 2014/15 season.

The club have also announced that Steve Pitt has joined Stringer’s back-room staff as head of recruitment and scouting with the two having worked together previously at Stortford.

Pitt has a wealth of experience at non-League level having played or managed at Harwich & Parkeston, Wivenhoe Town, Heybridge Swifts and Stanway Rovers.
