Potential new signings

With the vast majority of retained lists now released , which 3 players would you like to see us sign and why ? (Realistic targets only)

For me I would go for these -

Joe Leesley - LW - 16 assists whilst on loan at Boston last season , a left footed winger who can cross the ball and is strong at set pieces ( I can’t remember the last time we had a quality left footed winger )

Connor Malley - CM - finished the season on loan at Gateshead, I think he would give us the legs and drive from midfield that’s been missing since Hatfield left

Mark Beck - CF - we all know what he would give us , great target man and would chip in with 10-15 goals imo

Would be a great signing - would give us three very strong options at CB

Has he been released by Mansfield? Thought he had another year on his contract.

Noticed Justin Donawa was not in the Solihull Moors squad for playoff final. Has he fallen out of favour with them? Would welcome him back into ours for next season as we seemed to carry a goal threat when he was up front.

Pretty sure he was out for rest of the season with an injury he got over Xmas time? Could be wrong though..

Broke his leg a few months ago, presume he isn't back to fitness as yet.

Ahhh. Can't help but think Gateshead or York would be interested if he is going to drop mind.

Thanks, Super-Les. Bit of a shame for the lad to be crocked just as his big chance came. Hope he makes a full recovery & if he fancies a loan spell here on his way back....🤞

Kenton Richardson- RB - released from Sunderland is another id have a look at , did well on loan at Spenny last season. I guess he might follow the vibes and stay up there though

JJ Hooper is available from South Shields - not sure if he would be a decent option or not.

Is he out of contract or listed ? Decent player to be fair

Depends on how many options we have, but yes he would be a decent enough squad signing, his record isn't bad in terms of goals return.

Not heard him mentioned in regards to us and he had been full time since 2015 and the only time he wasn't full time I think he was based down South.

Didn't do much last time he was with us did he? Although he was just a young kid then.

Did okay in the National League with Bromley a couple years ago.

Can imagine he would want a decent whack of wages, I think there's better options out there for money we'd be paying.

Listed but imagine it's to get him off their wage bill for Phillips signings.

My guess is he will base himself out Liverpool if he moves out of full-time football - feeling that could be a barrier.

I see Gary Liddle has signed for shields, 35 year old now but a good pick up for them IMO

If he was a target, this isn't happening as he has joined Altrincham.

Looking at some of the other clubs in our league, a couple have lost some key players. Kettering have lost several of their best performers and also had to change managers when Culverhouse walked away. Brackley have lost 3 of their top performers, including one to Boston, who have been recruiting strongly, but their 30 goal man Danny Elliott is about to come out of contract and is in demand. The Brackley boss reckons some players are making "excessive" demands at this "early stage" and he's biding his time. "We need to let things settle down and get back to realistic money and then we will be getting more players on board," he said.
