The Suffolk outfit have added Quevin Castro, George Forrest and Ollie Saunders to their squad.

 

Former Thetford Town midfielder Castro, who left the club this summer having played 40 games in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division last season, was looking to win himself a deal with SkyBet League One side Ipswich Town.

 

Castro, who turned 18 last month, made a good impression whilst with the Tractor Boys but wasn`t offered a deal.

 

Castro, who is the brother of the Thurlow Nunn's top goalscorer last season at Thetford, Valter Rocha, had been doing pre-season at Vanarama National League club Sutton United before been picked up by Ipswich.

 

Having started out as a youngster in Sporting Lisbon's academy, the Portuguese-born player broke into Thetford's first team last summer aged 16 before going on to be a regular.

 

Castro was part of the Thetford team who reached the Norfolk Senior Cup final at Norwich City's Carrow Road last season, and along with brother Rocha, played a starring role as they narrowly lost to Isthmian League North side Dereham Town in May's final.

 

Defender George Forrest (pictured) joins Leiston on a month's loan from League Two side Crawley Town.

 

Forrest joined Crawley in July having previously played at non-League level for several clubs including Hornchurch, Romford, Maldon & Tiptree, Ebbsfleet United and Aylesbury.

 

He signed a two-year contract in July 2019, having trained with the squad since the start of the year.

 

Saunders, 18, is a defender or midfielder who joins on dual registration with National League South club Braintree Town, who he signed for last month from Grimsby Town, where he joined as part of the League Two club's 2017 intake of youth players.

 

He is at home as either a left back or on the left side of midfield.

 

All three linked up with the Suffolk-based club in time to start in Saturday's Emirates FA Cup First Qualifying Round shock defeat against Ware.
