Manager Darrell Clarke wants youth at Salisbury City

Salisbury boss Darrell Clarke says he is keen to sign up more young talent.

"We have experienced players who have played in the Blue Square Bet Premier," he told BBC Wiltshire.

"I don't think we need anymore experience and they cost a lot of money, so I'll be looking to get fresh, hungry, young talent in."

After their double demotion from the top tier of non-league in August 2010, Clarke has led the Whites back to the Blue Square Bet South for next season.

Eight members of last year's team, who beat Hednesford in the Zamaretto Premier Division play-off final, have now agreed to stay on for next term.

Clarke added: "All the players I wanted, bar one, have come back and I'm absolutely delighted with that.

"With Chris Giles coming back in as well the squad has shaped up nicely. We're still looking for two or three additions, the final pieces of the jigsaw.

"The boys are in great spirits and are buzzing to get back. They've had their seven weeks off in the summer so they're chomping at the bit."
