Gainsborough Trinity v AFC Telford United: Match preview
Gainsborough Trinity boss Steve Housham said he had to act to stop the rot ahead of the visit of AFC Telford on Saturday (3pm).
The Blues are currently rock bottom of the Skrill North having not secured a point at all this season.
His first deal has seen him bring in teenage striker Conner Robinson from county neighbours Lincoln City.
Housham has also snapped up young striker Rhys Oates on a one-month loan from Barnsley and left-sided midfielder Dan Clayton on non-contract terms from Harrogate Town.

“Usually you give it 10 games, but I couldn’t wait,” said Housham. “We were in a situation where players are too comfortable.
“I’m not saying our players are not up to it, but they know they are always going to get a game and they are not looking over their shoulder.
“They will be now, though. Usually I will announce the team for Saturday at the end of training on Thursday. However, I’ve not done that this week.
“I will announce it on Saturday. And I’ll be honest, with us in the position we are in, I will be shocked if any of them come knocking on my door after the game to ask why they weren’t included.”
While Housham has bolstered his attacking options, the Blues boss admits he is still looking to add at the back.
“I need another centre back, but it is a position that needs experience,” said Housham. “I cannot throw a young player in there.
“Up front it is a bit different. The youngsters will run all day and they will be fearless and get by on adrenaline.”
