SAINTS' boss Mike Davies has added another striker to his squad with the capture of New Zealand international Greg Draper, who spent last season with Basingstoke Town in Conference South.
Somerset-born Draper, 21, represented the All Whites in the 2007 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Canada where he played against Portugal and Mexico.
His senior international debut for New Zealand came in 2008 in a World Cup qualifier against Fiji and he was also included in the Under-23 squad for the Beijing Olympics, featuring in his country's group matches against Brazil and Belgium, playing alongside Blackburn Rovers' centre-back and club captain Ryan Nelson.
In domestic football down under he played for Canterbury United, Wellington Phoenix in the Hyundai A-League, Melbourne Knights in Australia and Team Wellington.
Greg, who hit 15 goals from 28 appearances for Basingstoke last season and has been training with the Saints over the past three weeks and put pen to paper this lunchtime.
