Malvern Town have been busy building their squad ahead of the 2022/23 season, with captain Matt Turner one of those to commit.

Turner scored 25 goals in 42 appearances across all competitions in the 2021/22 campaign and lead his Malvern side to a third place finish in the Hellenic Premier in their first season back at Step 5 in over a decade.

Player of the Season, Joe Bullock, was another who has agreed to another year with The Hillsiders.

Bullock has been a mainstay in the midfield and it will no doubt be a huge boost to manager Lee Hooper that he will be playing his football at the HDAnywhere Community Stadium once again.

Left-back Lewis Platt, who was in the Worcester News' Non-League Worcestershire Team of the Season, and goalkeeper Keiron Blackburn have also signed up for next season, as well as youngster Carrick Hill.

As is the case with non-league football, the merry-go-round of players is inevitable and Malvern did confirm that centre-half Jay Sauntson has decided to play his football elsewhere.

"A well-respected figure both on and off-the-pitch, he has been a loyal servant to the club, displaying plenty of commitment to the cause and helping us finish third in our first season back at Step 5 level last term," red a club statement.

"We thank him most sincerely for his service and wish him every success in the future."
