Buzz, (unfortunately) lost it all at Grays along with every ex-Canvey player that left us.
Our back line is aging, Wardy will be 30 soon, Benno is well past 30, Ross Johnson is 30, Crow is 29, Chenners, (I think) is around 27. Gavin Cowan is our youngest, (and most promising) Defender.
Not to mention if we sign Damon Searle he's 30 too.
Now I'm not saying that 30 is bad for a player, I'm just noting that this settled team over the next couple of seasons is more and more likely to crack due to increasing injuries, retirement etc.
We have Lewis Lilley coming through the ranks on the left, and he's 18 so he will be an exciting one to look out for in the future. What we need is someone a bit older than him who hasn't quite made it at Ipswich for example and who can play on the right-side of defence covering for Wardy.
In 5 years a backline of Lilley, Cowan, Chenery and ***insert young Right-Back here*** could be pushing us up through the Conference.
