That's the first I've heard about a game at Harrogate Town. It shows how well we travel when a club from a higher league wants to play us at their home. Might well go and see this game.

Many thanks Gramps. Looking at it set out like that generates some enthusiasm.

Good job gramps but I've always categorised wingers more as midfielders than forwards.

Helpful post. We just need a keeper and we can field a team with one sub at least!

Gramps you have made Glover "disappear" like Winston Wolf. Or did he only have a contract till end of season?

Nope fair point, have added him to the list. Although that speaks volumes about his contribution that most have forgotten he still is here.

Hopefully TW hasn't forgotten and makes him his first signing! I get that people say the lad needs time to develop, but we are not in a position to have someone contracted who does not appear to be contributing.

You can lose Nicholson, Gramps. Released today by mutual agreement.

Getting a bit depressing this. Only 12 players, one of whom recovering from an Op and no GK.

We were always going to have a big re-structure this summer with the changing of management team and reduction of budget. Still not in pre-season yet so no need to panic. Probably more outgoings to come.

Good job on identifying the visible "on the pitch" personnel, but what about the rest of the club? They are equally important to our future so would be useful if the fans got to know them.

This is a thread, by definition, about on the pitch details for next season.

If you want to create something listing all off-the-field personnel, be my guest.

We should be ok numbers wise for the start of the season as AA has already said he has a few lined up he is talking too, we will just have to wait till he gets back from hols (give the poor lad a chance😉). Certainly not worried, this is a rebuilding season and think it will be an exciting one with team spirit (top half with good footy, wins at home and a cup run of more than one game I am sure).
As has been said thanks to Gramps for putting this together, very useful, especially with my memory.
