CHATTERIS Town joint boss Leigh Matthews says the club are in talks to sign a centre half and goalkeeper to help them escape relegation.
The Lilies lost 4-0 at home to Hardwick on Saturday, a result which leaves them second bottom of the Kershaw Premier League and six points from safety.
Matthews is keen to strengthen his squad and is hopeful the deals will be completed by the end of the week.
He said: “We are on the lookout for a centre-half who is a good communicator and a goalkeeper because our usual first choice shot-stopper is injured.
“Hopefully we will have at least one new player in by the end of the week.”

“We had a couple of chances and could have gone ahead but once we fell behind we started to chase the game and they got a couple of lucky deflected goals.”
The Lilies boss still has faith in his side to claw back the large deficit in their remaining league games, starting with tomorrow’s crucial home match with Over Sports.
He said: “I don’t think it’s too big a gap. We have got 10 games left so hopefully we can pick up three or four wins in that period.”
