Tamworth Talent Recruitment Makes Lambs Look Tasty.
The Lambs have raided Nottingham Forest, Oxford Utd, Gillingham FC, Fulham FC, Birmingham City, Bury, Barrow, AFC Telford and Accrington Stanley in an ambitious ploy this term. For a side with what has traditionally been regarded as a bottom third budget, manager Dave Belford and his chairman have certainly got plans and the talent to surprise a few this season.

Despite losing top scorer Cunnington, as well as Tate, to Cambridge and Marcus Kelly going to Forest green the side is so much stronger this year. He brings his goalkeeping son in from Bury as a playing assistant and has assembled an admirable back four on paper. In comes Jack Evans from Gillingham, Matt Regan from Forest, imperious Jordan Rose from Telford and Tom Eckerslie from Accrington.
Richie Baker, from Barrow, is the only addition in midfield although the trio in his preferred 4-3-3, the loss of Kelly apart, were none too shabby anyway. Up front the improvement will take some stopping. Peniket from Fulham will plunder this division, Justin Richards certainly still has it in him and Ebanks from Birmingham is top draw. Let us not forget existing hit-man Darren Byfield who most Conference clubs would love to have in their team.
Belford finished 19th last season, after replacing Marcus Law who was relieved of his duties in January. The mission was accomplished last season to halt that alarming slide, but one gets the feeling the Lambs will be well into the top half and perhaps even pushing for the play-offs this time round.
