The Bassett boss has retained the services of a pair of key attacking players in the form of the tricky Mark Francis and the powerful TJ Bohane.

 

In addition to those options, Collier has also secured the signature of Alex Dinsmore, who joins his home-town club.

 

Francis finished as Bassett's second top scorer in 2019/20 with 8 goals in 14 appearances.

 

Boasting pace, skill and an eye for goal, Collier will be hoping of more of the same from a player with plenty of experience at a higher level – which includes a couple of appearances for Swindon Town.

 

Bohane (pictured), who scored 20 goals in Bassett colours two seasons ago, was limited by injuries last year, but still managed to find the net 6 times in 14 appearances.

 

Back to fitness this year, he will provide vital strength and experience in the final third.

 

Dinsmore, meanwhile, is a former Cheltenham Town scholar. In recent years he has spent time playing for Loughborough University in the United Counties League and has also previously made a handful of appearances for Cirencester Town in the 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons.

 

Experience has been added in other areas of the pitch too.

 

The backline has been strengthened by the addition of Jon Beeden on a permanent basis.

 

Last season the powerful defender split time between Chippenham Town, Thatcham Town and Bassett.

 

Classy midfielder Chris Taylor has also been added.

 

Taylor has spent the majority of his career with Swindon Supermarine but has also featured for Cirencester and, most recently, Highworth Town.

 

He also made four substitute appearances for Swindon Town at the start of his career.
