EVESHAM Utd have received a boost for the new season as midfielder Lorcan Sheehan returns to the club.

Sheehan has rejoined the Robins following a two year spell between 2016 and 2018.

In that time, the 31 year old made a total of 51 appearances for Evesham, scoring four goals.

He had also turned out for Bishops Cleeve and Cinderford Town, who he played for following his departure from Evesham in 2018, forming part of their Championship winning squad.

Another boost has come in the form of young striker Aaron Basford, who returns to the Jubilee Stadium having had loan spells with Evesham and Cinderford from SkyBet League Two side Cheltenham Town.

Basford, who had been with Cheltenham since the age of 10, also had a loan spell with Midland League Premier Division Worcester City in 2018-19.
