CHIPPENHAM Town have completed the signing of striker Nick McCootie from National League South rivals Bath City.

The transfer sees Bluebirds boss Mark Collier bolster his attacking options for the second time since Christmas, having brought in forward Jake Jackson from Southern League Premier side Frome Town last week.

McCootie will be available for selection in the Chippenham matchday squad for Saturday’s trip to Poole Town if the relevant paperwork is ratified by the FA and National League.

Collier said "Nick has been on the radar for some time now, so I am particularly happy that we have managed to secure a deal to bring him to Hardenhuish Park.

"He will certainly bring another dimension to us and has a proven track record at National League South level."
