SUPERMARINE boss Mark Collier is lining up a shock move for ex-Town assistant coach Ady Williams, the Advertiser understands.

The former Welsh international was present to watch Supermarine’s 0-0 draw with Atherstone Town on Saturday, and Collier was due to undergo further talks yesterday with a view to recruiting Williams as a member of his playing staff.

The defender signed for Blue Square South outfit Weston-super-Mare in June but would be allowed to turn out for the Hunts Copse outfit as he would be playing in a different league.

Williams, who turns 38 in a matter of days, is currently recovering from a long-standing calf problem that rendered him unavailable for Weston’s opener against Staines Town.

As well as Town, the central defender has played for Millwall, Coventry, Reading and Wolves during his career.

Meanwhile, Collier has revealed that he will not be signing ex-Cardiff midfielder Sam Wade following his trial period with the club.

The diminutive Wales Under 19 international featured in four matches in pre-season, and Collier admitted: “He hasn’t really done enough for us.

“You have to be better than what we’ve got, and we don’t feel he is.

“His favoured position is behind the front two, that’s a position we don’t use that often.”

Collier has also released Enoch Boateng after the midfielder was unable to guarantee his availability for two weekly training sessions.

The Ghanaian-born wide man becomes the second player in a matter of days to be released on those grounds, following the shock departure of new signing Tom Bird.

Collier has no plans to seek out a replacement for Boateng, leaving him with a squad of 18 going into the new season.

Off the pitch, the club have not yet had any approaches from companies looking to sponsor the first team shirt this campaign.

D.J Rideout General Builders offered to give up its sponsorship of the shirt after winning the prize in the club’s Grand Draw.
