New Basildon United boss John Guyton has wasted little time strengthening his squad, with the arrival yesterday of Sam Girling from Grays Athletic and Tyrone Baker from Heybridge Swifts.
We knew that Sam was on the move, as Athletic announced his departure earlier this week. The midfielder came through the Academy at AFC Sudbury, and made eight appearances last season before heading to Parkside. He made another eight for Athletic, but hadn't started this season.
Tyrone played in both of Swifts fixtures this season, and last season was a division higher, turning out for the Bowers and Pitsea first team. He was also part of his new managers Under 23 side at the Len Salmon, so has decided on a happy reunion.
