Weston have signed a former Bulgarian Under-18 international, who goes straight into the squad for the weekend.

WESTON announced they have signed Tevestan Filipov, a former Bulgarian Under-18 international, who has recently been playing in the Polish league.

The player has been training with Weston for several weeks, but they had to wait for international clearance from the Polish FA, which finally came through earlier this week and it is expected he will be included in the squad for the weekend games.

Leaving Woodspring Park is central defender and skipper Tom Jordan, who has decided to retire from football due to family commitments.

Since joining last season, Tom has been ever present and will be sorely missed.

The club wish both players well for the future.
