Town manager Carl Adams confirmed that he has signed both Halsall and Harvey Headley from Redditch United as he looks to finalise his squad before the summer break.

Adams told the Herald: “We welcome Joe back to the club. He was the type of player that we were missing last season and he will give us a real presence in the middle of the park.

“Harvey Headley is a another good addition for us. He had a good game against us when we played Redditch in the Birmingham Senior Cup last season.

“But apart from finding a left-back, I’m not looking to add too many more players to the squad. I think that the ones we have got have the ability to give it a real go next season, having the experience of the last one under their belt.”

Adams also revealed that highly-rated goalkeeper Andy Kemp has decided to stay at Stratford despite receiving offers from elsewhere.
