Stafford Rangers are actively looking to make new signings after losing two players last week.
Midfielders Louis Briscoe and Richard Batchelor both left the club to join other Northern Premier League sides – Sutton Coldfield Town and Stourbridge respectively. While Briscoe had been on the fringes of Boro’s starting XI since arriving at the start of the season, Batchelor has been a mainstay of the team over the past 16 months.
But boss Neil Kitching said that Stourbridge’s greater financial draw was difficult to compete with.
“When you receive seven days notice from a club who are financially better off, you know it’s going to be difficult to hold onto a player,” he told the Newsletter. “We always knew he might leave as we can’t compete financially with some clubs.
“We wish him well as he’s done well for us, especially last season when he helped us stay in the league. Now we’ve got to replace him, and we will be looking to bring someone in, especially after losing two midfielders.”
