New signing, plus more player news

The Whites have completed the loan signing of 20 year old winger Siphesihle Mdlalose from Premiership side Southampton. The exciting winger will be with Salisbury until the end of the season.

Mdlalose progressed through the Saints’ Academy, after having joined Southampton in 2015, and subsequently played in their Under 18 setup at the age of 16.

He will be available for the match at Hendon FC on Saturday.

Manager Steve Claridge commented on this latest loan signing, and that of Ben Morgan:

“Mdlalose is a very quick attacking player, and we are very pleased to have him on board.”

In relation to Ben Morgan he confirmed: “We have suffered injuries to central defenders and have been interested in signing Ben for some time.  He has played against us, firstly at Yate, and then in a pre-season friendly, and impressed on both occasions.

I would like to thank the parent clubs, Southampton and Bristol Rovers, for their assistance with these players which has meant that our Club has two good additions at very little expense. Both players were very keen to come to us, and we look forward to their involvement in helping us to finish as high as possible in the League.”

Regarding recently-signed Tyrell Skeen-Hamilton, Claridge said that his absence from action with the Whites was caused by his involvement with his club AFC Bournemouth, but that it is likely he would be in the squad for Hendon
