15 June 2003

It's been pretty quiet so far - it is only June after all - but there's been quite a few players let go from the squad that got us relegated last year.

I believe the following players not been resigned: Lee Collins, Les Hines, Gavin Stone, Richard Leadbeater,Tim Clarke, Neil Gibson, Gary Bauress, Mark Danks, Michael Blackwood, Lee Williams, Kirk Master.

Signed so far: Mark Hallam , a forward from Tamworth and Lee Knight back from Redditch with a lot more to come (otherwise we've only got about 9 players). More news on YeltzTalk as people find out about it.

According to Chas, the pre-season friendlies announced so far are Alfreton h July 19, Hednesford h Aug 5th, Willenhall a Aug 9th plus Bradford City, Blues, Oldbury no dates asy yet. Again, more when things have been confirmed.

On the pyramid reorganisation, it will all be ratified on June 20th, but it looks at the moment like the top 7 of the Western Divison will help make up the new Southern Premier the season after, which you would really hope we can do. Could be a bit of a dull season ahead though.
