HALESOWEN Town boss John Hill has started work to build next season's squad.

The Yeltz have brought in three new arrivals to the Grove as well as signing up a host of last season's players for the 2017/18 campaign.

Defender Jack Kelly, a former Nottingham Forest left back, comes in after playing for Hayes & Yeading and Kettering Town last term. He was known as a set-piece specialist for the Forest under-21 side.

Kelly is joined by forwards James Spray and Luke Shearer.

Halesowen-born Spray started his career at Wolverhampton Wanderers and has most recently been at Midland Football League neighbours Lye Town.

Shearer, can play on the wing as well as up front, started his career as a trainee at Torquay United, before returning to the Midlands to sign for Tamworth. He joined Barwell on-loan followed by spells at Hednesford Town, Romulus and Bromsgrove Sporting before joining Alvechurch. Most recently he has played for Redditch United and Sporting Khalsa where he scored six goals in 10 games.

​The club has also secured the services of six members of last season's squad.

Goalkeeper Daniel Platt, defender Bradley Lewis and midfielders Cameron Steele, Lee Chilton, Daniel Bragoli and Nathan Walker have all committed.
