Think you need to add Will Spencer to your senior squad 18/19 RB, you have him in the confirmed signings bit :smt023
Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.

From what I am aware of he has signed just waiting for the club confirmation.

BJ Edwards, played in one A League fixture but I’ve seen him on players social accounts so one could assume that he has signed a short deal or something like that

Will just say this isn't a definitive list or anything
I expect in the coming months
5-7 more signings potentially.
and
7-9 more leavers
with as AA says
6-7 Academy Forwards being brought up and 1 back.

Can you really see that turnaround? I'd say we are not far off being done,1 or 2 more for me that's it.

Well looking at some players social media profiles.
Seems Ryan and Traynor are off and Brady.

That's just from what I hear and names being banded about.
(Was including the likes of Stevens, Mafi etc in that list of in's though)

Lavin, Jordan, Latham, Martin (who is too early for the youngster?) who else do you think should be promoted
