Encouraging news Banksy and Kells both came to us from Non League Clubs.
And Banks found Beer for us at Weymouth ! 🍺

One GK who impressed me when he played at SJP recently was Shamal George of Colchester- he made some great saves- and his contract is up this summer. Or am I aiming too low?!
I was about to post the same. Seems like a very promising ‘keeper and has an excellent pedigree after coming through at Liverpool. I’d imagine this type of signing is way more likely than Hamer coming back.

He certainly kept the score-line respectable for Colchester

How about Fin Azaz to bolster our midfield? He’s had a great season at Newport, on loan from Villa.

Or the lad Keillor-Dunn at Oldham who was their standout player. I’m sure he’ll move on from them.

If last pre season taught us anything is that even ‘meh’ looking signings can turn out great. In Taylor we trust.

Aye, he was good. And took our constant ribbing with good grace.

A goal-scoring forward needed. I have it on solid authority that we've been keeping an eye on striker Tony-James Lee at Poole Town. Transfer fee may be involved and promotion has helped on this front.
Scored a couple in their final match of the season https://www.facebook.com/PooleTownFC/videos/match-highlights-and-all-the-goals-️-from-yesterdays-5-2-win-over-met-policecoyd/760405438675549/
34 goals for the season, solid looking striker who was also out with injury for ten weeks in the season.

Should that read "In Flitcroft we trust?"

I do wonder whats going to happen with the Keeper conundrum, i wonder what the plan is? Perhaps Lee is earmarked for next season and always has been-He's going to be 18 soon and he's not your average youth keeper is he, big prospect.
We also still have Jack Arthur on our books, although he’s one of a number of youngsters (eg Iseguan, Dodd, Veale, Johnson) whose future seems unclear.

But I know we'll meet again, some sunny day...
I like your logic, but "stay in League 1" ? Shirley our goal now is the Championship ! :cool:
Personally I'd like us to target mid-table or better

Don't think Matt would bottle it if offered a Championship position. Don't think he'd get a two year roller and huge wage increase if he did.
