Squad for season 2023/4


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I thought I'd start this thread in anticipation of today's news and going forward to the start of the new season.

Due to popular demand 😅 I'll update this list as and when required.

Goalkeeper

Defenders

Josh Jackman

Gabe George

Midfield

Scott Davies

Johnny Goddard

Matt Lench

Forwards

Not sure we’ll hear today as Scott did say he hoped to announce mid week but as that’s passed there may be some negotiating still on going. Be interesting if any retained players sign contracts?

I see no reason why not unless currently we haven't signed any players from last season.

First name on the list - Scott Davies - Midfielder (although sometimes defender as well)

Not going on the list until officially announced 😅

Erm, was announced along with the manager of the same name RR.

I’ve got a bad feeling about next season looking at this squad…

I’m a little confused why only 2 players have been announced unless negotiations are still ongoing with the others? Otherwise I don’t get this slow drip feed? I could understand this method for new signings.

Some are away on holidays I expect.

Slow drip feed? More like snail pace.

Least we have Josh Jackman and Johnny Goddard nailed down to stay [if they are men of their word,as we know from past seasons, players can renege because they get a better offer from another club] unless of course, these two are contracted.

I'm pleased both want to stay, as they have a lot to offer our team.Neither of them would be short of being tapped up by other clubs imo. Josh has been a favourite of mine since he first arrived at our club and he is my first name on the teamsheet. To my mind we are lucky to have him, as I think he could easily play in the league above.

Now we just need Matt Lench........Ogo Obi.........Joe Dandy ........Shane Bush.......Gabe George.......whoever?

In early May? I could understand if it was June or July. Can’t see many if any going away before sorting out if they’re staying or not as this was probably all arranged for that first week after the season finished.

It's probably just a more interesting and exciting way of doing it rather all at once and then nothing until the newbies are announced.

So at this rate maybe by next weekend we’ll find out the 10 or so players staying?!

Possibly about right.

A lot of clubs in our league have announced players that are staying! Probably most

Bit of both.

Some have announced their comings and going all at once and some have drip fed.

Johnny Goddard and Josh Jackman contracted? doubt it very much.

You'll always get the odd player who will chase the money and renege on their word, to those I'd say good riddance clubs are better off without them.

I call Josh Jackman Mr consistent, always averaging a 7 or 8 out of ten.

Like all modern full backs these day's he's better going forward than defending.

Johnny Goddard is a great signing providing he produces his second half of the season form which was top draw.

What keeper we get I think will be crucial to what sort of season we'll have.

We were spoilt with Will Dennis and to get someone similar will be almost impossible.

Dan Lincoln has been mentioned but I think getting him is just a pipe dream if only because of the money he was on at Dorking.

He has connections with Slough having played for their cricket club for 2 seasons and I think still does coaching there.

Other than that it's anyone's guess who will be between the sticks.

I dunno RR, stranger things have happened… plus he’s a Berkshire boy! I don’t think we will get him simply because he’ll have offers in the NL and even if he decided to play at our level his wages might be an issue. Then again I had very similar thoughts about Goddard thinking no way we’d get a sought after player but somehow we did. So you just never know and yes he’d be as good as Will and would show real intent too.

Or we could save a packet on wages and give Rhys another try?
