Manager Gary Whild is continuing to wheel and deal as he plots Redditch United's battle to remain a Nationwide North club.
Having signed Leamington striker Richard Adams last week, Whild has now bolstered his defence by signing versatile defender Vaughan Thomas from Willenhall Town. Thomas, who first came to prominence with Studley, is set for his Reds debut in Saturday's trip to Droylsden.
But Redditch have seen the exits of Steve Palmer - after one match for the club - and Daire Doyle.
Palmer, who had signed from Hucknall Town, has returned to former club AFC Telford United, while fellow midfielder Doyle has linked up with former Reds boss Rod Brown at Bromsgrove Rovers in a loan deal.
Halesowen Town manager Paul Holleran has promised more changes to his stuttering Southern Premier play-off hopefuls after freeing 20-goal top scorer Nathan Lamey.
Holleran insisted there has been no fall-out with the striker but his departure was needed to allow him room to shake up the squad. Hednesford Town are favourites to sign the forward, who had left Keys Park to join Town in November 2004.
The Yeltz, who title-chasing Salisbury City on Saturday, are chasing a couple of possible additions.
Stourport Swifts are hoping to persuade Per-shore Town striker Andy Hodgetts to play a role in winning their relegation fight.
Former Evesham United forward Hodgetts has bagged 36 goals for Per-shore this season and Swifts manager Roy Rencher confirmed he was in talks to bring a player he describes as an "out and out predator" to Walshes Meadow before Saturday's home game with Hemel Hempstead.
Southern One West side Swifts are also tracking Studley striker Kevin Jones.
Leamington are waiting to hear whether they will succeed with an audacious bid to tempt striker Dave Pearson from Solihull Borough.
The Brakes want to add to their strikeforce after top scorer Richard Adams moved to Redditch and manager Jason Cadden has filed a seven-day approach for Boro's Warwick-based forward Pearson.
Manager Shaun Cunnington's policy in giving youth its chance at Alve-church has secured the signing of Oliver Harthill and Gareth Davies.
Midfielder Harthill, who is just 17, has joined on loan from Birmingham City, while 18-year-old right-back Gareth Davies has signed after being freed by Port Vale. "If they are good enough, they are old enough," said Cunnington. n Tipton Town dealt Chasetown's title charge a blow after a 2-0 win in last night's Harvey World Travel Midland Alliance fixture.
The Scholars were reduced to ten men on 69 minutes when Danny Smith was dismissed for collecting a second booking for diving and two minutes later Tipton took the lead. Aaron Bishop won possession and slotted home from six yards.
As Chasetown pressed for an equaliser, Scott Stevenson broke clear to add a second in injury time. ..SUPL:
