North Village schemer Jemeiko Jennings and his defensive team-mate Kofi Dill will be unveiled along with Colts striker Aljame Zuill as the Bermuda Hogges newest recruits next week.

Talented Rams youngster Keishen Bean could also be included in the Hogges squad for the forthcoming USL season if problems over his eligibility to play college soccer can be cleared up.

Philadelphia Kixx striker John Barry Nusum is also strongly rumoured to be joining the Hogges, though reports that he will have signed on the dotted line in time to make his debut in the season opener against Charlotte Eagles next week remain unconfirmed.

Paul Scope, who co-owns the Hogges with coaches Shaun Goater and Kyle Lightbourne, said no transfers could be confirmed until the squad had been officially approved by the United Soccer League. He said the squad would be officially announced next week.

But Jennings and Dill have been seen training with the squad and club sources confirmed they have been drafted in as replacements for axed duo Dennis Zuill and Raymond Beach.

With Goater and Lightbourne indicating that they will be concentrating on full-time coaching this season, Aljame Zuill and possibly Nusum will fill their slots on the roster.

Bean would come in for Trojans stopper Sean Simmons, who has been off the island since the end of last season.

The Hogges are on the road for their first game of the season against Charlotte Eagles - one of the top sides from last year. That game kicks-off at 7pm next Saturday

The first home game is at the National Sports Centre the following Saturday at 6pm against Wilmington Hammerheads.
