Former Yeovil Town loan midfielder Conor Clifford has completed his loan move to League One side Portsmouth. The Irish Under-21 international has become the latest player to sign terms at Fratton Park on a limited one month basis whilst the club remains in limbo.
The 20 year old was intended to sign on a half season loan, having played in one of Pompey's pre-season friendlies, but at the moment that has been limited to the first month only. He joins ex-Glover Luke Rodgers who signed for them yesterday on a one month contract, having recently returned from the USA, via a short spell with Norwegian club Lillestrom.
Former winger Alan O'Brien has returned to this part of the world after a year in the North-East. The 27 year old has signed for Hungerford Town, who play in the Southern League Division One South & West. The Irishman spent the second half of last season playing for Gateshead at Conference National level, but has dropped three divisions to join the Berkshire club. Hungerford boss Bobby Wilkinson says of the the player:
"It's a great signing for us and he will be in the squad that goes to Bridgwater for the opening game of the season."
Former midfielder Gareth Risbridger has made a permanent switch to St Albans City after winning a contract with the Southern League Premier Division side. Now aged 30 years old, the former Youth Teamer, who was taken to Southend United by David Webb, has most recently been with Boreham Wood and Staines Town. He joins former Glover Curtis Ujah, who has also moved to Clarence Park this summer.
Former midfielder Ben Smith has signed for AFC Sudbury, who play in Isthmian League Division One North. The 33 year old was on the books of Crawley Town last season, although had spent time on loan with Kettering Town and Aldershot Town having drifted out of their first team. Ben was training with Braintree Town earlier this summer, but now signs for Sudbury, putting him close to his Chelmsford roots again. Their first team manager Chris Tracey has given him a one year contract, saying:
"Ben will bring his experience to our side and I have no doubt he will be a big influence on it. He has had a number of offers from various clubs but has found us the one he likes. He is extremely fit and showed up well in our last pre-season game at Bury Town last week, Iím sure our supporters will be pleased with him."
Finally former Glovers trialist Aarran Racine has signed a three month contract with Conference National side Forest Green Rovers. The 20 year old was at Huish Park earlier this season, but failed to get a contract offer, with the defender having left Southampton over the summer just gone.
