AFC Telford United sign Danny Ventre and Glenn Matthews

Danny Ventre
Danny Ventre left Derry City in November after just one season with the League of Ireland Premier Division club.

AFC Telford United have signed midfielder Danny Ventre and brought in in young defender Glenn Matthews on a month's loan from Bolton Wanderers.

Matthews, 20, and Ventre, 28, are both available for Tuesday's hastily-rearranged home game against Halifax.

Telford, who are bottom of the Conference, have drawn twice and then won successive league games since new manager Steve Kittrick took over.

Late fixture switch for Telford and Halifax
Halifax were due to play Dartford in an FA Trophy replay on Tuesday night but the game was postponed on Monday morning, allowing the Bucks to host the league fixture with Halifax as originally scheduled.

Another point against Halifax would be enough to lift them off the bottom.

Tuesday's game will be the first time that Telford have played in front of their home fans since 1 January.

Liverpool-born midfielder Ventre, who used to be at Accrington Stanley, had been on trial with Ronnie Moore at Hartlepool since leaving League of Ireland side Derry City in November.
