Ben Starosta: Nuneaton boss Brian Reid makes first signing

Nuneaton Town manager Brian Reid has made his first signing by bringing in defender Ben Starosta.

The 6ft former Poland Under-20 right-back, who has signed a one year deal, subject to international clearance, played league football with Brentford, Bradford City and Aldershot.

From Pole to Pole

  • Much-travelled Sheffield-born defender Ben Starosta has played for teams in Poland (Miedź Legnica and Lechia Gdansk - on loan), Australia (Dandenong Thunder) and the Philippines (Global). His most recent English club was Alfreton Town in 2009-10.

Reid came across him when he managed Philippines club Global FC last year - and Starosta, 27, was his captain.

Theo Streete, Gavin Cowan and Delroy Gordon have all signed new deals.

The three defenders have all agreed new one-year contracts to follow the lead of midfielders Adam Walker and James Armson, who signed new deals earlier this week.

Boro's 17-goal top scorer Louis Moult has also been offered new terms by the club, but keeper James Belshaw's future is yet to be decided.

Reid has been in charge since 17 April when he took over from caretaker-boss Mark Noon, who had been put in charge following the departure of Kevin Wilkin to Wrexham a month earlier.
