Hawks boss Lee Bradbury feels striker Bradley Bubb can fire the team to glory next season.

After going so close to success on three fronts, Bradbury has been looking to add extra goal power to his squad.

He believes Bubb, who has a proven track record in the non-league ranks, will deliver that.

The striker has joined from Aldershot after being released when they finished their season.

Bradbury said: ‘Last season showed we need someone to score goals.

‘Bringing Bradley in should do that.

‘He has a good record at our level, scoring on average a goal every other game.

‘If he can do that for us he will end up with 18 to 20 goals, which is what we lacked last season.

‘He is physically strong and still only 29 years old.

‘Quite a few teams from our league were trying to capture him but he decided to come to us.

‘He is a big signing for us.’

Bradbury is also hoping striker Dennis Oli will stay at Westleigh Park.

The manager has made Oli an offer and is waiting on the player’s decision.

Oli hit just four goals in the league this season but did, however, prove to be a hardworking presence up front, creating openings for his fellow strikers.

Sahr Kabba is also due a big season after ending the campaign with 10 league goals.

His season was blighted at times by injury and later in the season by Bradbury’s move away from 4-4-2.

‘It was an up and down season for Sahr but he possesses the pace to frighten defenders,’ said Bradbury.

Scott Jones and Alek Przespolewski spent most of last season on the fringes but will have another season to prove themselves.

Bradbury has hinted he is still in the market for another forward and a physical ball-winning midfield player.

He has also added experienced goalkeeper Ryan Young from AFC Telford and that is a major coup.

Young was regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in Skrill North.
