Bottom club Tolka Rovers aren’t going down without fight.
The John Chandler club are currently seven points off safety and haven’t won in four.
However, the manager has moved to strengthen as recent title challengers attempt a second half comeback.
Chandler has added five to his squad including three with League of Ireland under 19’s experience.
However, probably the most significant of the incomings is Graham Bedford. The goalkeeper has manned the sticks of title hopefuls Bluebell United for large parts of the season, but has swapped a title race for a relegation fight.
Left back Kevin Kelly joins from Sandyhill Shangan, while former Shamrock Rovers under-19 captain Gavin Kearny, a centre half also comes in the gate at Frank Roe Park.
Luke Somers is another with underage LOI experience and comes in from Bray Wanderers under 19s, while midfielder Darragh Brennan signs from Bohemians under 19s
