Stamford AFC secure the services of goalkeeper Tom Jackson

Goalkeeper Tom Jackson has become Stamford's second signing of the summer.

Jackson has joined Jordon Cooke in agreeing terms with the Daniels for the forthcoming Southern League Premier Division Central campaign.

The custodian played for North Ferriby in the Northern Premier League East Division last season.

His former clubs also include Cleethorpes Town, Belper, Frickley Athletic and Gainsborough Trinity.

Billy Bennett, Mike Armstrong and Tom Siddons have also joined the plethora of players from last season's squad who have agreed terms for the new campaign.

Skipper Rob Morgan, James Blunden, Will Glennon, Harry Vince, Jack Duffy, Lee Shaw, Tendai Chitiza, Joe Burgess and Connor Bartle will all be returning.

However, five players have departed the Daniels this week with Ashton Offler, Ollie Brown-Hill, Florian Tsagium, Brad Munns and Tiago Nassunculo all moving onto pastures new.

Highly-rated defender Offler is moving up to step two of the non-league pyramid while Brown-Hill has joined Stamford's league rivals Barwell.

Tsagium, Munns and Nassunculo have all left in search of more game-time with Rhys Hilton having already departed following his switch to league rivals AFC Telford.

Club stalwart Jon Challinor has helped the England side progress into the latter stages of the World Seniors Cup in Thailand.

Challinor and his team-mates are through to the semi-finals where they will face Iran today on Friday as England target their seventh seniors success.

The Stamford ace netted two goals in an 11-0 warm-up win over Thailand which set England up for an unbeaten group campaign.

They shared the spoils in a goalless draw with Australia before recording 3-0 and 2-1 wins over Vietnam and Thailand respectively.
