The one-time Hereford United target Marcus Browning (pictured) has signed a contract at Blue Square Premier side Weymouth.

36-year-old Browning has accepted a combined assistant manager and player role with the Terras'.

The former AFC Bournemouth player is understood to be a close friend of Jason Tindall, the Weymouth manager, as he explained recently to the Dorset Echo:

'I am delighted Marcus has joined us. I know him very well because we played at Bournemouth together and he will be an asset to us.'

Browning began his career at Bristol Rovers in July 1989 as a trainee, and almost joined Hereford as a striker after a succesful loan period. He went on to rack up 210 appearances for the Pirates before moving to Bournemouth.

The ex Hereford United wing-back Simon Travis has surprisingly agreed a two-year deal with Blue Square North side Nuneaton Borough.

Talks between the player and club have gone smoothly this week after Travis successfully came through this weeks friendlies.

Travis, now aged 30, has picked up an injured right foot but is expected to take his place in the Borough line-up for tomorrow's fixture with Rugby Town.

Boro boss Kevin Wilkin is likely to utilise Travis in a variety of roles, as he has already talked about his versatility.
