Sidmouth Town have parted company with a couple of players in the past week.

Tony Radford and Ash Mitchell have both departed Manstone Lane with the latter heading for Eastern Division table-toppers Elmore.

Town joint-boss Kevin Tooze says: “The lads have decided to move on and we wish them well. For our part we will now be looking to bring in two or three to boost the squad.

“We currently have no specific targets and so are open-minded as to who we might bring in, but bring them in we will.”

He continued: “We won’t sign players for the sake of signing, no; what we want are players who can come in, join the squad, make a difference, and complement what we already have .

Town, who are in Devon Premier Cup action on Saturday at Holsworthy (3pm), will be enjoying home comforts for the remainder of November, during which time they will play three league games – and all of them will be at Manstone Lane.
