MAT Liddiard is not the only familiar face to link up with Gloucester City for next season.

Evesham United’s tenants announced a triple signing with former loan winger Adam Page and defender Jack Deaman drafted back in by the Tigers.

Page has completed a permanent move following his release from Cheltenham Town. Last season’s temporary stint with City was cut short by a recall that saw him swiftly moved on to Hereford where he made five appearances in the memorable FA Cup enjoyed by the Bulls.

Former Gloucester boss Tim Harris swooped to bring him in at Redditch United with his exit from Whaddon Road announced in April.

The third recruit is Jack Deaman, another former Cheltenham and Hereford player.

The defender kicked off his career with Wrexham before linking up with Birmingham City. After his release, he represented Gloucester’s National South rivals Eastbourne Borough and then enjoyed a successful trial at Cheltenham, making 18 first-team appearances.

Deaman, pictured above, played 11 times for the Tigers in 2016-17.

“We’ve been a little quiet compared with other clubs so far but it was imperative that we take our time and sign the right sort of players,” said Gloucester boss Marc Richards.

“I know all three lads from their previous spells with us, they are returning to the club already understanding the mentality and what it takes to play for Gloucester City.

“I’m delighted to be able to welcome Adam, Jack and Mat back. We are a club that values not just ability but the right attitude and these lads have both in abundance.

“I’m talking to a few others and building a team that I believe will be competitive in the coming season.”

City will play two pre-season matches at the Jubilee Stadium, kicking off against Evesham United on Saturday, July 7 before welcoming Derby County on Wednesday, July 18.
