Some news of who's in and out has been dribbling out, and the list of friendlies is now available.
First the player news. Woody and Ralphy Crisp are both out , rejecting 'reduced terms'. They both been tree-mendous players for the club, and will be sorely missed. Other leavers are James Ince, Jon Ford and I believe Jason Owen .
Definite (as far as I know) to stay are Dennis Bailey, Les Hines, Jason Burnham, Stuart Skidmore and Ross Collins . Finally, Andy Quy, Peter Sutton and Clinton Thomas have been asked to prove their fitness at pre-season training.
The list of pre-season friendlies has been announced - quite an interesting list including Stourbridge Town, Kiddy, Albion and Blues. First game is on July 14th, so there's a bit to go yet :-(
