Parsons also numbers Wealdstone and Barton Rovers amongst his former clubs and Melton are happy to have him on board and see him as a player who can still go far in the game.

 

Joint boss Tom Manship said: I see similarities between him and Aston Villa`s Scott Hogan after playing with both.

 

I believe his future could be very bright under me and Jon Stevenson.

 

It`s been all-change at Melton under joint bosses Manship and Stevenson, who are determined to mount a challenge for promotion.

 

Another new recruit is the young and talented Kyle Reek.

 

Reek spent a few seasons at Corby Town academy and did very well for new league rivals Holwell Sports in the East Midlands Counties League last season.

 

Among the other new arrivals are the Fray brothers, Levi and Leon, who returned to the club from UCL Premier Division side Kirby Muxloe.

 

Long-time Town striker Ash Palfreyman returns after a season away, while goalkeeper Rob Peet will finally play for his home-town club.

 

The keeper signed a professional contract with Hull City as a 19-year-old in 2012, having had a trial at Manchester United while with Grimsby Towns academy side.

 

Peet, now a teacher at Birch Wood, joins Town after spells with Lincoln United and Gresley FC.

 

Melton  also raided Kirby for skipper Sam Wilson, a centre-back who also has Hinckley United on his CV, but the main business was done early in June when former Leicester City and Corby skipper Edi Appleton signed, along with former Shepshed Dynamo and Hinckley AFC midfielder Josh Hill, former Leicester City winger and playmaker Levi Porter, and prolific goalscorer Michael Reeve from Shepshed.
