FALMOUTH Town have announced the addition of four players ahead of the 2023/24 season.

Bradley Leivers and Jared Sims join from South West Peninsula League Premier West outfit Newquay, while Morgan Coxhead arrives from newly-promoted SWPL side Truro City reserves.

Meanwhile, forward Alex Wharton has also returned to the team following a spell at Camelford last season.

Left-sided defender Leivers was a virtual ever-present for the Peppermints last term, making 30 appearances and scoring three times as Newquay recorded a sixth-place finish.

Leivers will be a familiar face in local football circles after his three-year spell with local rivals Penryn Athletic prior to signing for Newquay in 2022.

Experienced forward Sims, 29, follows team-mate Leivers to Bickland Park after making 20 appearances for the Peppermints last season.

Sims began his career with Plymouth Argyle and made nine appearances for the Pilgrims in League Two between 2011 and 2013 before going on to represent the likes of Truro City, St Austell and Mousehole.

Coxhead, who celebrates his 20th birthday next week, will be another familiar face to the F-Troop after the goalkeeper made four appearances between the sticks for Town last season when deputising for Ryan Barnes.

After making his entry into senior football with Sticker, Coxhead joined Truro City’s newly-formed reserve side in 2021 and made 58 appearances in two seasons, with 25 of those coming last term as the White Tigers clinched the St Piran League West title.

Meanwhile, forward Wharton has also returned to the club after spending the second half of last season with SWPL side Camelford.

Wharton made 16 appearances for the first team last term before joining the Camels in December, scoring five goals in nine games for the Trefrew Park outfit before returning to Town for their final game of the season at home to Street.

First-team manager Andrew Westgarth was delighted to bring some new faces into his squad so early in the summer, and was pleased to add further depth to his side.

He said: "Timing-wise, it’s perfect for us. We’ve had a really good first year in the Western League and we want to kick on and I think anyone that watched us last year would agree that on our day when we’ve got everybody there we were more than a match for anyone.

"But where we’ve come unstuck is with how demanding the Western League is, the squad is vital because when we fell short with the numbers it cost us."
