Some interesting points.
Because pre-season has been so short clubs are stating that it'll be 2-3 weeks before they release trialists or send players out on loan. So players dropping down from. higher leagues will be more of a trickle down this year.
Sam Shaban and another player need international clearance. So again could be 3 weeks before they are available to play.
Three strikers were supposed to be coming in on trial. 2 ended up playing in friendlies for their current clubs and the other announced the night before the match that he wanted to be given a contract prior to the game.
Another player (striker?) we were looking at signing is now out injured for 3-4 weeks.
Another trialist who impressed was red carded in a friendly elsewhere so would not be available for the start of the season.
Sealey-harris played for Gosport but the FA have confirmed that we would be due compensation. Door is still open for him.
So no idea who will play on Sat. CJ could be fit but other players still have injuries. Still hoping to bring in some new players for Thursday.
