Ahead of the match at Marine, Barwell boss Jimmy Ginnelly made two signings just in time to feature in the matchday squad travelling up to Merseyside.
Richard Lavery cut a spell at Rugby Town short to return to Kirkby Road, having only left the Canaries during the summer. The veteran was an unused substitute at the Travel Arena.
Second signing Lee Hildreth played the full 90 minutes versus Marine, replacing injured Alex Tomkinson in the starting line-up.
The 28-year-old was pleased to be involved in the goalless draw and is fully aware of the squad’s capabilities, having faced them with Sutton Coldfield Town just a month ago.
“I really enjoyed my first game at the club,” said Hildreth.
“It was and up and down game- they were better in the first-half and we were stronger after half-time- and a draw was probably a fair result.
“We’re looking to push on and hopefully move up the league table.
“I actually played against Barwell not long ago while with Sutton Coldfield. They were a tough team to play against.
“The team has been doing well and has been in great form recently”.
Despite the fast turnaround between signing and playing, the former Coventry City youngster feels he has been able to settle in very quickly.
With a home debut expected this evening versus Stourbridge, the midfielder gave an insight into what the Barwell supporters can expect from him the pitch.
He said: “I’m a hardworking, honest midfielder, who has a bit of ability on the ball. I like to keep hold of it and can pass well.
“The lads have been great since I signed and, from speaking to Jimmy (Ginnelly), there’s a lot of players who work hard for the team in our squad.
“I’ve settled in well and it feels like I’ve been in the squad for weeks as everyone around the club has made me feel very welcome.
“I’m looking forward to getting more minutes under my belt”.
