LAMBS boss Marcus Law, believes he has pulled off some real coups to ensure a 2012-13 season to remember for Tamworth.

Last week the club announced that Tom Marshall would be returning to the Lamb and that he would be joined on the journey from Kidderminster by goalkeeper Tony Breeden.

The club also announced that Jamie Smith would be signing on for the new season joining the likes of Scott Barrow and Richard Tait who had already confirmed their places for the campaign ahead.

But, after starting pre-season training last Sunday, Law has now confirmed the players he admitted Tamworth fought off a lot of competition for and those he believes will help move the Lambs forward.

Law said: “I have kept my cards very close to my chest over the last few weeks and have done that for a reason.

“But now with pre-season started and the fixtures out I am delighted to announce some of the players we have managed to bring to the club.

“Up-front I have managed to bring two quality players in to challenge JP Marna and Kyle Patterson who were already signed on for the year ahead.

“The first player is Adam Cunnington who is a player we have managed to bring in from Dagenham.

“I know things have not gone that well for him in the last couple of seasons but he wants to put that right. A lot of clubs wanted him there to do that.

“We have also managed to produce another great signing by bringing in Tommy Wright. Tommy used to play for Aberdeen and Luton and Forest Green and is a centre-forward I think the fans will have a lot of time for.

“He is another player a lot of teams were looking at and I am delighted he chose to come to Tamworth.”

Law added that the other new addition, Marcus Kelly, just added to the quality he had brought in.

Law said: “Marcus is a quality player and one I know all about from my time at Kettering.

“I was the one who moved him to left-back when I was there so I know what he is about and I know what he can bring to Tamworth.

“He is technically a very good player and another one I think the fans will take to.

“I think when you add all these players to the likes of Scott Barrow, Richard Tait, JP Marna and the likes you can see what we are trying to achieve. We are bringing in quality players and ones who will help the club move forward.”

Not that Law admitted the new faces would end with those confirmed in the last seven days.

He said: “I am looking at three or four players at the moment in training but as yet nothing has been signed.

“We may bring in a few more faces before the start.”
