Injury-hit Cheddar have managed to sign two new players in a bid to get their season back on track.

Injury-hit Cheddar, who were without a game at the weekend, face a crucial few days over the next week, in an attempt to get their season back on track.

The Cheddar manager has however been busy over the past weekend, adding to his squad , with the signing of 18-year-old former Yeovil Town Academy winger Harry Barnes from Southern League outfit Frome Town, together with former Taunton Town midfield utility player Andy Butler from Toolstation Premier Division side Bridport.

Cheddar hope to kick-start their season when they face a tough FA Vase (first qualifying round) tie at home to Radstock Town on Saturday. Hot on the heels of Saturday’s game is an equally tough assignment at Sherborne Town.
