Mike Cook said: I am delighted to welcome Dan Griffiths and Alefe Santos to the club. Both players are attacking players and will bring pace and creativity to our attacking options. Dan has had an excellent start to his professional career being on the books of Liverpool FC and Cardiff City FC…scoring lots of goals for the academy system. I am confident he will make the step up to National League South football and hopefully score lots of goals for Chippenham Town FC. Alefe is somebody I have known for a few years now from when he was playing for Bristol Rovers’ youth team and then progressing into the first team. He is a good character and has excellent ability which we know he can transfer to our level and will be an important member of the squad going forward.
