Needham Market boss Mark Morsley has bolstered his striking options, with the signing of Ollie Mann.

Mann has signed Ryman League forms for the Marketmen, after spending the last few seasons playing in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division with Brantham Athletic.

The striker has had Ryman experience before, at Leiston, under Morsley, before a serious knee injury halted his progression.

But after regaining fitness and confidence, the 25-year-old is ready to test himself at a higher-level again, with Needham beating off competition from several other clubs for his signature.

Mann could make his Needham debut at Farnborough on Saturday, as the Suffolk side look to win their fourth Ryman Premier Division game in a row.

An injury-time own goal saw the Marketmen defeat East Thurrock 2-1 last night, adding to recent wins over Hendon (2-0) and Tonbridge Angels (2-1).

Only goal difference sees them sit in the relegation zone prior to Saturday.
