The Evo-Stik League Southern

Cross was in goal as the Greenbacks won promotion. However, he was expected to play second fiddle to the more experienced Kemp next season.
Manager Steve Farmer said: “It was an amicable thing. Tom wants to play regularly next season.
“We wish him well and the door is always open for his return.”
Cross is believed to be attracting interest from former club, Baker Joiner Midland Alliance outfit Stratford Town and Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division South side Stamford AFC, although he is currently a free agent.
Meanwhile, Bedworth return to pre-season training on Saturday and they will have three new players training with them.
The first is winger Aaron Donaldson, who played under Farmer at Nuneaton Griff before joining Midland Alliance side Coventry Sphinx.
Farmer feels the former Nuneaton Borough youth team player has failed to reach the potential he showed as a teenager.
“I think I have unfinished business with Aaron. He and Bedworth’s Kyle Cartwright were the first players Nuneaton Griff ever had on contract.
“Since then he’s had three good years at Coventry Sphinx but I think there is untapped potential there.
“We’ve got to get him focused. We want to offer him the chance to play at a high level. He’s a very good footballer,” he said.
Another winger, Tyrone Amory, will also spend pre-season with the Greenbacks having left Blue Square Bet North side Corby Town. The ex-Atherstone Town man is the brother of Greenbacks midfielder Loyiso Recci.
He narrowly missed out on earning a deal with npower League One side Swindon Town after making the final three in the Samsung `Win a Pro Contract` challenge.
The final player Farmer will run the rule over is former Solihull Moors and Tamworth striker Harvey Headley.
