Blyth Spartans have unveiled four more signings, bringing the total of new arrivals to Croft Park this summer to 14 players.
Right-backs Dylan Purvis and Michael Pearson have joined the club following their release from Hartlepool United.
Another former Pools player, striker Lee Mason, has also penned a deal along with left-back Richie Slaughter.
Meanwhile the club have announced the release of striker John Alexander and goalkeeper Jake Cunningham.
Spartans manager Steve Cuggy told the club's official website: "We just felt that [Cunningham] wouldn't get the games at Blyth and that will not help his career."
Meanwhile with so many additions to his squad, Cuggy admitted his new players will have to earn their place in the starting eleven.
"I have made no promises to any of the lads, so it is up to them to fight for a place in the squad.
"They have all shown good attitudes, they are all talented players and are young, hungry lads, so hopefully they will seize the opportunity and thrive at Croft Park."
