12:00pm Tuesday 29th October 2002

REDDITCH United have unveiled two new signings and a familiar face for next season.

Crowd favourite Matty Hall has confirmed his return to the Valley after a one year sojourn at Western Division champions Halesowen Town.

And he seems likely to be joined by Rushall defender Chris Homer and another Reds old boy Neil Manton next season.

Manager Rod Brown approached Homer during the season but he opted to stay loyal to Alliance high fliers Rushall.

The central defender was described as "ninety per cent certain" to sign by Reds number two Gary Whild.

The versatile Manton, returning to the club from Sutton Coldfield Town, will be looked at as a right back or central defender with hild saying the club may switch to a 4-4-2 formation from Brown's favoured 3-5-2 next season.

And Whild said the club are confident of adding another unnamed central midfielder.
