BROMSGROVE Rovers have given their Southern League Division One West promotion chances a boost by signing former Tottenham and Portsmouth winger Andy Turner.

The 29-year-old made the switch from Banbury United and could make his debut in Saturday's clash at second-placed Clevedon Town.

Turner, who began his career at White Hart Lane and also includes Wolves, Crystal Palace and Yeovil among his former clubs, arrives along with loan capture Carl Tranter from AFC Telford United.

Rovers manager Jimmy Mullen said: "He has got a great background and there's no questioning his ability.

"He was playing in the Conference with Tamworth and in the League with Northampton a couple of seasons ago."

Bromsgrove, sitting in fourth place with games in hand on the league's top three, can move within two points of Clevedon if they win at the Hand Stadium. Rivals Evesham United are also five points clear of Rovers in third.

Meanwhile, Rovers Reserves will meet Alvechurch in the Worcestershire Senior Urn final after beating Barnt Green Spartak 2-1 in the semis last night.

Craig Thomas and substitute Paul Footes scored the goals for Rovers.
