It makes such a nice change to sign players early and who aren’t absolutely slated by their previous fans

You heard of him? Must have slipped me by. Don't know if we have any Hereford here for a reference? Not blown away at first glance
No not until I was told yesterday yesterday we’d signed him. Asked on here and got some whit from a Dover fan so guessing no Hereford fans on here..

I know there is some Grimsby fans though…Stefan Payne, what’s he like?!

Isn’t Payne the lad who was scrapping with his own teammate on the pitch at one point last season?

Happy with the Grimes signing from the comments I’ve seen on here and social media about him, sounds like an absolute rock who just loves to defend

Central defence wise that now gives us Gunning, Kerr, Maguire, Hollis and Grimes which considering we play a back 3 is about right. Wouldn’t be surprised to see us take someone on a 6 month loan though to cover for Hollis whilst he’s injured

Isn’t this Payne a striker?

Surely we’re not after another striker when we have Asante (from December), Rowe, Mitchell, Tyson and Denton all signed on for next season!?

What I want to see us going and doing is bringing in a couple of nippy wingers that can beat a man with pace/skill, as that is definitely something we’re lacking

Stefan Payne was at Dover too, mainly up front with Ricky Miller. Rescued from Essex somewhere and left us for Barnsley.
A good NL player still I'd imagine if his mind's right.
Has behaviour issues though. Headbutting his own teammate last season, gesturing at his own fans whilst at Bristol Rovers.

Payne has had two spells at Sutton. The first as a 17 year old when he was phenomenal and very quickly earned a move to Premier League Fulham. He rejoined a few years later after playing for a few FL teams. His second spell did not go so well. He was lazy and uncommitted. Interestingly for Sutton supporters his uncle is club legend Craig Dundas

Yeah he is. Not as inspiring as the potential Boldewijn and Clarke signings for me!

There is Hereford fans but our season ended that long ago I doubt many check. He is a quality CB surprised he's still only 30 so he's definitely got a few good years left.

Payne is an ok player but has a terrible attitude.
He wasn’t even an ok player for us, he was absolutely garbage and played like he had cement in his boots.

He scrapped with Morais because the ball wasn’t played into his feet and there were genuinely 6-7 occasions in his spells where he had the ball played 1-2 yards in front of him and still didn’t move. The best being the image below.

Have to agree with others, Payne was poor, came with promise at similar time to LJL having both played for Hurst at Shrewsbury leading them to lge 1 play-offs.

Think he scored very early, maybe even his debut and that as about the only thing he did. After that he looked like a worse Matt Green (which is difficult in itself) and finished it by fighting with his own player and getting sent off on the way to the tunnel at HT, never to be seen again thankfully.

Devinte Redmond has signed on for another season, I think he's the last of the players who were offered new contracts so now just the little matter of appointing thw manager and bringing in some new faces.

Redmond only had 2 sub appearances last season so was a shock he was offered a new deal but he's got a lot of ability so hopefully he actually shows it this year.

We haven’t made a single signing yet. I don’t know what’s going on. We’d normally have made 3 or 4 by now. I can only assume that we’ve got that many applicants to wear the famous 2 star white jersey that we’re currently sifting through the shite.

They make their way down the leagues didn't you know? Once we have offered up a bag of skittles and a hand full of magic beans they'll soon arrive on your doorstep

The one who was at Swansea? Christ, he must be at least 40.

Would of been a ridiculous signing 7-8 years ago. Must be in his forties now.
