INJURY woes have forced joint Shortwood managers Jason Scrivens and Matt Blythe to go on a signing spree.

Frampton striker Manolo Marques Espada has joined on dual registration forms and will be available for midweek matches along with Slimbridge teenager Jacob Waddington and striker Jack James.

The Nailsworth side are currently missing striker Troy Budd (broken arm), Lee Bowles (broken ankle), captain Joe Tryner, Finlay Byrnes, Ellis Harper, Tom Lennard, Guy Halliday and Joe Wilton.

Shortwood’s next match takes place at home against local rivals Stonehouse Town on Friday, October 11, 7.45pm.
