Milton Keynes Dons have been looking to make sure they go a step further than last season as the signings in League Two continue to pile up.

31 signings have already been made across the fourth tier this summer, with several weeks to go until the start of pre-season as several sides have set about bolstering their squads from last term.

MK Dons have been one of those to send out early signs of intent as they have added three players involved in the promotion race from last season as they look to improve on their playoff semi-final defeat.

Stockport County’s Connor Lemonheigh-Evans, Laurence Maguire, who spent last year on loan at Crawley Town, and Crewe Alexandra midfielder Luke Offord have all arrived at Stadium MK to add to one of the best squads in the division.

Chesterfield Town have also not been wasting any time in tooling up for their tilt at back-to-back promotions. Having already landed Paddy Madden amongst others, two League One defenders in Chey Dunkley and Lewis Gordon have arrived in Derbyshire to help firm up the back line, which was a slight chink in their armour in the National League.

Gillingham had the opposite problem last term and they have added firepower to a side that struggled for goals for much of last season. Elliott Nevitt has been another to leave Crewe after their playoff final defeat and the club’s top goalscorer last season will be in Kent next season.

They have also added two more tried and tested League Two performers with AFC Wimbledon’s industrious Armani Little and Accrington Stanley’s Jack Nolan also arriving. Nolan had 26 goal contributions from out wide last season and should help the Gills get goals from more areas.

Bradford are continuing to build on their strong end to last season, with Notts County’s National League winning defender Aden Baldwin adding a ball-playing presence to the Bantam’s ageing back line.

Wide duo Jordan Gibson and Harry Clifton have both joined Doncaster Rovers after they learned Hakeeb Adelakun would not be returning to the Eco-Power Stadium, with Rovers carry their unbeaten charge into next season.

Some other eye-catching signings have seen goalkeeper Matt Macey joining Colchester United having played at Portsmouth last year, reigning League Two champion Myles Hippolyte moving to Wimbledon, and one of Mark Kennedy’s former players Matty Virtue swapped Blackpool for Fleetwood.

Elsewhere, Salford City signed Dan Chesters, Sam Finley joined Tranmere Rovers, Barrow captured Katia Kouyate, Grimsby added Tyrell Warren, and Notts County signed Matthew Platt.
