After a busy couple of weeks of discussions and meetings, I am pleased to say that Gary Stohrer, Sam Bennett, Lewis White and Tyrone Lewthwaite have committed for the coming season and Luca Miller has agreed terms coming from the KTFC Academy. I am still in discussion with Rhys Sharpe but am hopeful we can agree terms this week for him to stay. I have been delighted with the response of the players who were here last season and especially pleased to get commitment from those who want to be here.

Delighted also to announce we have agreed terms with centre half Kelvin Langmead. Kelvin is an experienced player, a leader who has played professionally, and had last season at VNLN for Banbury United. More to come on this signing.

I am in discussion with a number of players at present and hope to see some deals been done this weekend. It is always a challenging time with players weighing up their options and going on holiday. I want key players here so going after them takes time and effort as well. I have also lined up a healthy number of trialists for us to look at next week. We hope to have one or two of last year’s loan players returning in pre-season and we will also have the best of the Academy boys joining us for pre-season as well.

Also, I’m building my own management team, and more information on that will follow.
