The Toolstation Western Football League
Published 16th May 2012
The Eagles finished their Toolstation Western League First Division season five places from bottom in fourteenth spot, with German replacing previous boss Chris Vinnicombe in March.
They ended with a 1-0 win over Shrewton United a week ago on Monday, with Kai Fisher scoring their winner, and German revealed he had big plans over the summer.
"Nobody's place at the club is safe. We already have a couple of coaches coming in who I'll name soon," he said. "Central midfield is a position I'd like to strengthen and we have a few names in our hat as well. We'd also love another striker.
"We have a list of names and I'm confident we should be able to get them in at the club.
"I also have a list of names of players I want to keep at the club, and I hope they do. You can't attract new players and build a better team if your do not have a good team already.
"Before pre-season, we also need to have a good backroom staff. I am looking for a new physio, a goalkeeping coach and a couple of normal coaches, so we should get about five new people in."
A positive attitude is likely to be a must, after German said he was forced to let a number of players go due to their negative mindsets.
"I think the mentality is what we have changed the most," he said. "Going back four months, we had a few players who brought a little bit of negativity to the camp.
"After arriving, a number of players left. All of them were good players but they just brought negativity in.
"I think the remaining players learn quickly what type of mentality they had to have and when things go wrong they have to try and bounce back."
