Butcher has raided Macclesfield Town for 25-year-old goalkeeper Rhys Taylor, and 26-year-old defender Scott Barrow.

His third signing is also from the Conference and comes in the form of Lenell John-Lewis who signs a two-year deal from Grimsby Town.

Taylor is a former Wales Under-21 international and actually started his career in the Chelsea youth academy. He also kept 18 clean sheets for Macclesfield last season with the club just missing out on the play-offs.

The stopper will provide competition for current first-choice keeper Joe Day.

Fellow Welshman Barrow was in fine form for the Silkmen and will provide competition for places in defence.

John-Lewis, is a speedy striker who was part of the Mariners team who narrowly missed out on promotion to the Football League, when they were beaten on penalties by Bristol Rovers in the play-off final.

He netted 18 goals last season and he is a player who Butcher says he has been watching for a while.
