HW Welders manager Gary Smyth has made three important signings as he looks to strengthen his squad ahead of the new season.
 
Smyth has opted to bring in keeper Joe McGovern and strikers Matthew Ferguson and Michael McLellan.
 
Enniskillen born custodian McGovern was most recently with Scottish club Cowdenbeath. The 26-year-old, brother of Northern Ireland keeper Michael, had been out with a cruciate ligament injury and brings with him bags of experience after several years in the Highlands with Dundee United, Forfar Athletic, East Fife, Montrose and Clyde also.
 
Ferguson and McLellan will need no introduction to the Tillysburn Park faithful.
 
'Spike' spent last season with the club on loan from Glenavon, banging home 21 goals in 28 appearances across all competitions while McLellan returns after spending the last three seasons with Linfield and Ards.
 
Speaking to the official club website Smyth said, "I'm absolutely delighted that the three lads have committed to sign when the window opens.
 
"We know there are goals in Matthew and Michael. Joe has looked very sharp in training, his handling and kicking skills are excellent and he, along with the other two lads will add strength to the squad."
