RIDGEONS League, Premier Division Leiston will have five new faces in their squad when they play Ipswich Town at Victory Road tonight (kick-off 7.45pm).

Leiston manager, former Ipswich midfielder Jason Dozzell, has signed three players from his former club Ipswich Wanderers - with goalkeeper Jaimie Stannard, defender Mark Goldfinch and midfielder Marc Lowe signing one-year deals.

Striker Darren Harper, who scored 17 goals in 29 games for Leiston St Margarets last season, has moved up from the SIL to the Ridgeons League, while this week defender Pip Boyland signed a one-year contract following his release from AFC Sudbury.
