Former Bury Town player Russell Short reunited with manager Richard Wilkins at Evo-Stik League South Premier Division Central side Needham Market

Needham Market boss Richard Wilkins has boosted his Evo-Stik League South Premier Division Central play-off chasing squad with the signing of experienced defender Russell Short from St Neots Town.

Short is well known to Wilkins, with the pair having previously worked together at neighbouring Bury Town.

Wilkins told the club's website: "Shorty is a quality player and one who I enjoyed working with during our time at Bury Town. When I knew about him leaving St Neots Town he was someone who I did not think twice about signing.
