Hemel Hempstead Town have announced three new signings ready to join the squad for next season.
Hot on the heels of the previous announcement regarding the news of Sam Corcoran, Callum Adebiyi, Mitchell Weiss and Lewis Taafe all joining the Tudors, manager Dean Brennan has revealed the signing of Matthew Saunders, James Kaloczi and Dan Walker.
No stranger to Tudors fans, Saunders re-joins the club from National League side Aldershot Town following a spell with Hemel two seasons ago.
Saunders is a very talented midfielder with a calming presence on the ball and fits perfectly into the management’s plans and beliefs for the newly-shaped squad.
Starting out at then Barclays Premier League side Fulham, his other League appearances included spells at Lincoln City, Dagenham & Redbridge and with National League promotion-chasing Dover Athletic.
Saunders has shown great faith in Dean Brennan and Stuart Maynard in returning to this level of football.
Twenty-one-year-old Kaloczi has returned `home` after previously playing for the Tudors` under-18 side four years ago.
Having turned out briefly for Potters Bar Town, Kaloczi joined St Albans City and played a number of games for the Tudors` neighbours in their Southern League play-off winning squad and then again as a midfielder in the Saints’ first season in the National League South, scoring with several long distance strikes.
A move to Dunstable Town allowed Kaloczi to play at centre-back where he excelled, was made captain and almost helped the Duns into the play-offs before finishing last season back at Clarence Park, playing a big part in their relegation-avoiding run-in.
Kaloczi is yet another example of the hungry, talented and determined young players that the Hemel management believe will help the squad achieve their goals.
In keeping with all of Hemel Hempstead`s signings this summer, the club is absolutely delighted to announce the key signing of 26-year-old Dan, also from Aldershot Town.
Having joined Luton Town from Bedford Town in August 2010, Walker impressed with his pace and powerful forward runs early in his Hatters career but with management changes, he found himself regularly deployed on the flanks throughout his time at Kenilworth Road.
Subsequent loan spells followed at then-National League sides Eastbourne Borough, Southport, Cambridge United and Braintree Town.
A permanent move to Braintree was followed by a transfer to league rivals Aldershot last summer.
Once again, the management are delighted that Walker chose to develop his undoubted abilities and further potential with the Tudors in the face of massive competition from several clubs in the National Leagues.
