Why wouldn’t it be popular, best target man I’ve seen in years at this level. Sooner him giving apposition defenders a hard time than our own.

More likely his team mate Josh Wilde will come to Jakemans .

Considering we have offered terms to Brogan, maybe not. Wilde had his chance to join us a couple of years ago.

I don't think that will deter CE if he thinks Wilde is a better option .

When Craig arrived here he said that there were enough players in the lower league to put a team together that would compete in this league. I am sure they will all be in his "little black book" so no need to speculate about players in this or the leagues above, leave it to him.  UTP.

Tom Denton is a free agent...
He wouldn't be a popular signing, but he would be great target man, I personally don't know if I would sign him
I would imagine he will go in search of Billy Heath.

Yes we hated Denton mainly because he always lifted his game a notch v us & inevitably hit us where it hurts. I thought he was always underated. Unplayable in the air, superb positional & hold up play & decent goals return season on season in CN. Don't think we could afford his signing on fee (reportedly 10 grand at Halifax) never mind his 6--700 quid. a week wages. I agree with Oxo: Craig will bring in younger talent maybe from our league or below.

Signings seem to be a bit slow, has anyone heard anything yet?
Have Thompson and Middleton been retained by their respective clubs.

So Chorley are having a clear out, Walker and Roscoe have been shown the door so far.

Walkers a cheating clever little sh*t. Reminds me of Jarman. No thanks.
He who would valiant be , 'gainst all disaster.
Let him in constancy follow the master.
There's no discouragement shall make him once relent
His first avowed intent, to be a Pilgrim.

John Bunyan, 1684

Hemmings and Thompson will not be returning to Boston as players next season.

I know it’s early days but it’s nearly a month on from end of the season and we couldn’t even put together a 5 a side team

Elliott has already explained to the local press he prefers to wait and be patient rather than jumping in early and paying over the odds. You can disagree with the approach of course, but at least the lack of signings is a deliberate strategy rather than some kind of behind-the-scenes meltdown. I don't think there's any cause for worry.... yet!

Never really expected to see Hemmings back - if it's true he's off to Salford I doubt anyone could begrudge him the opportunity.
