Hitchin Town manager Darran Hay made four captures on the eve of their first pre-season training session of the summer.

Further signings are expected soon after the Canaries reported back on Saturday.

Hay has strengthened his defence and midfield and has also resigned key figures from last season's squad.

The new faces include Jonathan Woolf from Bedford Town, a wide player who has impressed Hay over the past 12 months.

Full-back Lee Wilson has joined Hitchin from Haverhill Rovers.

Central defender Marcus Gross has arrived from Wealdstone. Just 19, he has also played for Wycombe Wanderers.

"I'm delighted to have got these lads signed up for next season - they are all key to my plans," said Hay.
