....weekend, manager Graham Drury says he is pleased with his squad following the addition of versatile winger Andy Hall.
The former Coventry City trainee was the latest of a string of new faces that Drury has brought to the club since his appointment in May.
"I've got an eighteen-man squad after the signing of Andy Hall, so we're ready for pre-season.
"One or two players may pop up in pre-season and we may have a swap around, which can happen, but eighteen was the number I was looking for and at the moment we are where we are and I'm happy."
It might not be the biggest squad, but Drury is pleased with his recruits and the make-up of his newly-shaped squad.
He is aware of the importance of pre-season, though, and how that can impact on his side's start to their campaign.
"It's not always about quantity, but about quality, and I have a good blend of youth and experience in the squad and Andy Hall has added to that experience alongside Paul Mayo, Robbie Maddox, Dave Staff, and Gary King.
"Pre-season is massive, especially for us because we have a new bunch of players that have been put together.
"I think it's important that we come together, get to know each other and start believing in each other, which will create a winning mentality.
"I want us to be playing for each other on the pitch and if we can get that installed in the squad, you have always got a chance."
