St Ives Town manager Ricky Marheineke hopes to add two more attacking players ahead of the Southern League Premier Division Central season.
Marheineke has overseen a radical overhaul of the Saints’ squad following a difficult 2017/18 campaign in which they would ordinarily have been relegated. A restructure of the non-league system ensured they remained at Step 3 despite finishing third-bottom.
“We’re very pleased with the players we’ve already been able to bring in,” said Marheineke, who completed the capture of former Kettering Town and AFC Kempston Rovers midfielder Munashe Sundire late last week.
“The squad has come together well and we’re just looking to add a couple more attacking options before the season starts on August 11.”
Saints have only won once so far in pre-season and suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of former assistant boss Jack Cassidy’s Bedford Town side last weekend.

Marheineke added: “We’ve looked good for long periods in all games. We’re very organised defensively, but we’re lacking a little cohesion when attacking.
“That’s to be expected due to so many new signings so it’s not a concern.”
