Soham Town Rangers have announced the signing of former Mildenhall Town goalkeeper Josh Pope.

The 28-year-old left Mildenhall at the end of last season, citing a work-enforced relocation as the reason behind his departure.

However, Pope was back between the posts for the Suffolk side last week as they took on St Neots Town in pre-season action.

Any chance of a swift return to Recreation Way were ended, though, when Mildenhall boss Dean Greygoose secured the services of former Histon shot-stopper Sam Roach.

Instead, Pope has now linked up with Soham following their 3-0 friendly victory at Rothwell Town this afternoon.

Midfielder Lewis Clayton has also agreed a deal at Julius Martin Lane.
