TRANMERE Rovers' boss Rob Edwards has brought in two new players ahead of this weekend’s opening game of the League Two season.

Defender Gerardo Bruna has signed a one-month contract, subject to international clearance today. Fellow defender Matt Hill also comes to Prenton Park on a non-contract basis.

Bruna has been on trial at Prenton Park throughout pre-season, playing in the games against Rhyl, Marine, Everton and Bolton Wanderers.

Hill will be available for the opening match against York City at Prenton Park on Saturday, kick off 3pm.

Bruna's eligibility will depend on the Club receiving international clearance ahead of the game.

The 23-year old, who was born in Argentina, started his career in the youth system at Real Madrid before joining Liverpool.

He spent two seasons with Blackpool before playing in Spain with SD Huesca last season.

Manager Rob Edwards said: "Bruna is a talented young player who has done really well for us over the last few weeks.

"He has got huge quality and we want to give him a chance to prove himself and his fitness."

Defender Matt Hill spent the last two seasons with Sheffield United, making 39 appearances in 2013-14.

Edwards added: "Matt is a player I know well and who will give us extra cover.

"He's a quality defender who has played at a high level all of his career and will fit in well with the rest of the squad."

Looking forward to his first game as Rovers manager, Rob Edwards told the club's website this week: "I've really enjoyed the pre-season and I'm looking forward to Saturday.

"It's a new start for myself and a new start for the club. The players have been looking forward to it for a couple of weeks and I can see they want to get started.

"Hopefully we can all look forward together and try to play in a certain way that develops our own players.

"We've got a lot of football early on with four games in the opening two weeks so there are a lot of games for everyone to look forward to.

"We'll try to play in an entertaining way, we're going to have to play as much football as we can and be different.

"We've got footballers who want to get the ball into their feet, turn and run at defenders."
