Tonbridge Angels’ survival hopes have been given a boost by the club’s board, who have agreed to fund additional signings.
Boss Steve McKimm added Farnborough defender Simon Cox to the squad ahead of last weekend’s 1-0 win over Hampton & Richmond.
Bromley midfielder Mitchell Pinnock followed, to sign in time for the midweek match against Wingate & Finchley, which Tonbridge lost 2-1.
Pinnock arrives on a month’s loan, while Cox has signed a dual registration deal.
McKimm was hoping to add an additional face to the squad in time for their Ryman League, Premier Division match against East Thurrock United on Saturday.
The Angels boss said: “We don’t have one person who backs the club but we have five or six people with the club’s interest at heart who have put their hands in their pockets to help. It’s not loads of money but it has allowed me to bring in a couple of players.
“Those new arrivals have given the players a bit of a lift and given myself, as manager, a few more things to think about.”
Fifth-placed East Thurrock boast the league’s top scorer, in Sam Higgins, with 23 so far.
McKimm said: “It will be a tough game and they are a good all-round side. We lost a close one at their place and will have to be fully focused. Hopefully, we can respond from Tuesday.”
