Nuneaton Town in Focus
After 3 promotions in 4 years Kevin Wilkin has brought in 11: 4 defenders – Stephen O’Halloran (Carlisle Utd), Tom James (Watford), Gavin Cowans (Gainsborough), Delroy Gordon (Corby Town) ; 3 midfielders – Danny Sleath (Boston UTD) Ben Ford (Kettering) & Jon Adams (AFC Telford); 3 strikers – Robbie Thompson-Brown (Kidderminster) Kyle Perry (Lincoln City) & Danny Newton (Hinckley); plus Australian keeper Ben McNamara. After leading the club back from the dead, having been liquidated in 2008, can one of non-league football’s shrewdest bosses pull off the unthinkable?
