Woodley United manager Michael Herbert (pictured) has boosted the size of his squad ahead of a debut Hellenic Premier Division campaign that promises an increased workload for his players.

The Premier Division campaign will include an additional 12 fixtures while United have also been drawn in the FA Cup for the first time.

Herbert has signed forwards Ashley Ledger and Nathanael Robinson as well as attacking winger Marvin Hinds and defender Michael Porter.

Ledger joins the Premier Division new boys from Wessex League Division 1 new boys AFC Stoneham where he scored 18 goals in 42 appearances while fellow forward Robinson joins from Maidenhead United where he scored 6 in 13 games for the under 21 side in the Suburban Football League.

Winger Hinds  – described by new manager Herbert as ‘explosive’ with a great attitude – steps up two levels from Thames Valley Premier Division side Taplow United where he was top scorer with 16.

In addition, Herbert has bolstered his defence with the capture of Michael Porter from Division 1 East AFC Aldermaston. The centre back with a knack for scoring (7 last season) made 21 appearances for the Atom Men.
