The Clarets have strengthened their squad ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Hungerford, with the signing of midfielder Chris Whelpdale.

Whelpdale joins the club with extensive Football League experience, with his last four clubs being Stevenage, AFC Wimbledon, Gillingham and Peterborough.

He spent last season with Stevenage, in what was his second spell with the club, where he made 27 appearances in League Two, scoring once.

The 31-year-old will be included in the matchday squad for tomorrow’s game.
