BORO boss Kevin Glendon is hoping to add goalkeeper Danny Hurst's signature to that of the seven players who have already re-signed with the club.

"I can't envisage any problems and hopefully he'll sign the two-year deal I've offered the other lads," said Glendon.

"I know Accrington fancied him at one stage but then they decided to move for Craig Dootson at Stalybridge.

"That in turn put them on to Danny, so he's been waiting for a call, but I think Accrington are looking elsewhere now and so I had another chat with him and he should re-sign for us."

Hurst himself said: "There's still a couple of things to sort out but it's looking like I'll be staying.

"There have been a few teams in for me but none of them have taken it any further at the moment, so it's looking like I'll stay at Boro. If we start well other teams may well renew their interest.

"I'm not bothered about Boro not making it to the Conference North, because if I moved on it would only be to a Conference club or a league club.

"I felt I had a good season last season but I really want to go full time, so I'll just have to see what happens."

Glendon is also waiting to hear if Steve Foster has accepted the same two-year contract as Hurst and seven others.

The Boro manager is also targeting Rossendale United's former Accrington, Stalybridge and Lancaster City striker Brian Welch, and former Manchester City, Oldham and Bury defender, Steve Redmond.

"I tried for Steve last year but he went to Leigh RMI in the Conference," said Glendon.

"He's coming in to see me tomorrow and I don't think he'd be doing that me if he wasn't interested.

"If he does sign it will more than likely be for just one season, but he's an experienced lad, he knows what its all about and I think it would be good for us.

"If he does join us I might try starting him in the middle of defence alongside another former Manchester City defender, John Foster and James Price, and push Davey Luker and Simon Kelly up into midfield."

Both John Foster and Price, along with Josh Mitten are non-contract players and are now in the second year of their Unibond two-year deals.
