Whitehawk manager Pablo Asensio has announced his first wave of signings for the 2016-17 season.

And he is promising there are more imminent arrivals on their way.

Captain Sergio Torres has committed his future to the club, two players are returning for a second stint with the Hawks and Asensio has also snapped up a former Albania under-21 international centre-back as well as a striker.

In addition French defender Chris M’Boungou, who impressed at the end of the last season, has signed a contract for the new campaign.

Former Crawley Town midfielder Torres made a big impression in his first season with the club.

His capture, by then manager Steven King, was something of a coup last summer following his release by Crawley and he went on to play 48 games last season.

M’Boungou joined Whitehawk in March from Bishop’s Stortford and made nine appearances in a surge to the Vanarama National League south play-offs.

Midfielder Ahmed Abdulla has returned to the club along with versatile defender Marvin Hamilton.

Abdulla began his career at Arsenal before spells at West Ham, Swindon, Dagenham and Redbridge and Barnet. He played for Whitehawk in 2014-15 and returns after a season with Staines Town.

Hamilton has had three spells with Eastbourne Borough and now comes back for a second stint with Hawks.

Albi Llenga is a 26-year-old Albanian who has played professionally in Greece and Germany. He represented his country at under-21 level.

Striker Duncan Culley, meanwhile, was formerly with Farnborough and Hampton and Richmond.

Asensio has more signings in the pipeline as he reshapes his squad for his first full season in charge, having been confirmed in the role in May after a spell in caretaker charge.

Top scorer Danny Mills was already under contract for next season but a number of the existing squad are expected to leave.
