Whites Manager Steve Claridge said:  

"We're really pleased to have him, it adds a bit of physicality and experience to our team, which were looking for"

"We've done what we think is a good deal for his wages, which I always think is important"

"We're looking ahead somewhat, to try and tick the boxes, that maybe were going to need to give ourselves the best opportunity if we were to get in to the play-offs".

New signing Brian Dutton spoke of his excitement of returning to Salisbury:  

"I'm looking forward to helping the Chairman and the board, Steve and his staff, the fans and the team achieve promotion and move them a step closer to where they belong. 

"After all the turmoil, the fans deserve a club that will put the City back on the footballing map again! No doubt about it those days will return!"

"The three seasons' I've been away Salisbury's result was the first result I would check (well maybe not the first season!) When you achieve success with a club, like we did with Salisbury the club stays with you forever from them moments."

"The old club had a fantastic family and community warmth to it! I had the opportunity to play at a higher level but I wanted to be back amongst friends fighting for a great cause!!"
