Experienced goalkeeper and Leyton Orient youngster link up with Mildenhall Town

Mildenhall Town manager Ricky Cornish has boosted his squad with the addition of two new players.

Experienced goalkeeper Danny Crump has signed on at Recreation Way following an injury to number one Jake Hayhoe, who is likely to be sidelined for another couple of weeks.

Crump arrives having had three spells at higher-league Felixstowe & Walton United, as well as turning out for Hadleigh United and a number of Suffolk & Ipswich League sides.

Meanwhile, young forward Lawrence Hammond has also joined Mildenhall on loan from EFL League Two side Leyton Orient.

The second-year scholar recently scored a hat-trick for Orient's Under-18s during their 3-1 win at the expense of Cambridge United.

Hammond has also spent part of the current campaign on loan at BetVictor Isthmian League Premier Division outfit Bishop's Stortford, for whom he made eight appearances.

Both players could make their Mildenhall debuts during Saturday's home Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division fixture against Norwich United (3pm).
