Bowker hopes to have unveiled Spanish gold with latest signing
LIVERTON United boss Tony Bowker is expected to unveil his latest acquisition when his side travel to Saltash United on Saturday (3pm).
Bowker is hoping to name a Spanish striker in his team's starting XI for the clash at the Kimberly Stadium this weekend, having put in the registration papers this week.
Bowker said the as-yet-unnamed frontman has played at a semi-professional level in Spain and would hopefully be with the club for the rest of the season.
Another striking option is just what the doctor ordered at Halford, with Jamie Chamberlain set to serve a three-match suspension for being sent off at St Blazey last weekend.

Chamberlain was shown a straight red midway through the first half, after allegedly kicking out at an opponent who elbowed him.
The sending off left Liverton to defend a 1-0 lead for more than an hour. Surprisingly, it took St Blazey until the 75th minute to break down the door and find the equaliser.
But the Cornishmen then scored the winner almost straight afterwards, and Liverton dropped to ninth in the table as a result.
Chamberlain will be among the squad looking to atone this weekend, as there is a 21-day appeals period before any ban takes effect.
But Bowker said it was naivety which effectively cost his side: "We were on top after 15 minutes and had gone a goal up – also in that period we came close to going 2-0 up on three occasions. But I can't condone what he [Chamberlain] did – he just gave the referee a reason to send him off."
Bowker added: "Even when he got sent off we had chances to go 2-0 up. Half time just came at the wrong time for us as in the second half the players were too deep and spent too much time moaning at the ref.
Defenders Craig Fenner and James Tuffey were both missing last weekend, but are expected to return this Saturday.
Bowker said: "We would have won the game comfortably with 11 men, without a doubt, but hopefully it's a lesson learnt and we've got to go and get three points at Saltash. It's a big game for us and we will do our best to put it right."
