Matlock Town joint managers Craig Hopkins and Glenn Kirkwood reckon competition for places among their squad is already paying dividends as they prepare for the upcoming EVO-STIK League campaign.
A number of new signings have been made and they have already made a number of new signings.
Hopkins is pleased with the deals that they have got in place.
“Having got Adam Yates and Ted Cribley tied up, it was brilliant to see Willo and Joe sign their contracts. We’ve managed to keep nearly everyone from last year so we’re chuffed. It gives us a good base and means that most of the players know what’s expected of them. Willo and Joe did really well but Cleveland Taylor and Callum Lloyd will push them for the two central midfield places.
“Cleveland’s come back looking really fit and sharp, he’s a tremendous talker as well. Callum’s back to full fitness, when me and Kirky won the First Division South with Mickleover, Lloydy was the best player in the league.”
