Forest Green Rovers

Three quality signings look set to ice a cake that did not quite bake last season. Definitely contenders for the play-offs who flexed their muscles to outdo the Dragons on Wright and Mangan.

Perhaps things will turn out OK for the Heed, who were homeless last term. A ground is in the offing and they are certainly investing in the team. Brodie – yes Richard Brodie – Larkin and Boyes are fantastic signings and at least two of the new defenders have pedigree too.

Grimsby Town

The Mariners have been quiet in the market for sure, with quality and steel to the fore. Winger Scott Neilson has arrived from Luton to complement a new look midfield thanks also to York raids for Scott Kerr and Patrick McLaughlin. Oh Scotty Kerr how you made young Frecklington purr! They have kept Craig Disley suggesting this foursome are a formidable force who can and will dominate games at our level. A ball winning crew and supply line to boost an awesome array of attacking talent.

However the Mariners have lost inspirational characters and talent as part of a nine-man clear out, with even financial benefactor Mr Fenty, eager to balance the books in the face of new fair play break-even rules.  Defenders, Wood, Miller and Ford, have gone to pastures new. Artus, Niven, Soares and Josh Morrall have vacated the midfield, but the replacements see improvement rather than concern. Greg Pearson is the only forward to leave, suggesting the duo are more than pleased with the multitude of blessings up front, in the form of hitman Hearn Hannah and Cook.

Hereford United

Hereford managed to find £300,000 over the summer to halt the exodus and allow Martin Foyle – the second best manager in this league – to build a side.  Sam Smith is an one, but then Bush, Pilkington, Purdie and Walker have a reassurance to build on.  Foyle has not got money to burn but at least he can start to pull in some of those irons in the fires over the next couple of weeks. The young keeper is very useful.
