Wollacott did well on loan for us a couple of years back, very good shot stopper overdid the sweeper keeper bit at times. Kept a clean sheet in the league cup away at Bournemouth against the likes of Callum Wilson, Dominic Solanke, Josh King and Ryan Fraser.

Think we could do a lot worse than Jojo to be honest. Guessing our assistant Rene Gilmartin probably worked with him at Bristol City.

Given the puddle of shit we are expecting to fish in for players most fans are happy enough with our first signing.

Clough said that Naylor was having his medical, and claims his agent was still in discussions behind everyone’s back with Wigan who eventually came in with a bigger offer.

No doubt that it be a very good signing, but I’m not quite sure it was a good idea considering he would have comfortably been our highest paid player. Rather that money go towards a striker, or even a top GK for this level.

Quinn is expected to sign next week, we have a loan deal for a young GK to come too, plus close to another loan for a first choice. Rollin is essentially on the transfer list so the fanciful partnership with Hewitt probably not happen Grimsby fans, good news is you can probably sign him if you’ve got 50/80k to pay.

Confirmed that James Brophy has left us and signed for Cambridge - Good signing for them IMO, be interesting to see if he can improve his end product.

Yes I’m pleased with that, definitely feels like an upgrade on Hannant. Three year contract is bold, guess he must have pushed for that as we don’t hand out long contracts often.

Goalie Joe Day has re-joined County, three year deal, after joining Cardiff from County and loaned to Wimbledon and Bristol Rovers over two seasons.

I think it may be that Mellon knows NKP is a battler and we had too many snowflakes in the side last season, who melted when the pressure was on.
I noticed that League 2 is alot more well Physically and when we played at PP in Playoffs we enjoyed the Hostile Enviroment

Another signing due to be announced today. Again no notion as to who.

We have made a signing! Conor Wilkinson on a 2 year deal.
Strange player Wilko.
At times unplayable, can beat 3 men from nowhere and lash it in the top corner, also loves a cheeky lob, isn't bad in the air and sprays the ball around nicely too. Surprisingly physical for his frame and he has great feet.
That said, I have never, ever seen a more one footed player, it's like he doesn't have a right foot, and as a result gets sussed out easily.
Very hot and cold too, if you get him firing then he's a very solid forward at this level, but he can get sulky and not be bothered as well.
Comes across as a smug prick too, but hope he does well for you.
Surprised he's gone to Walsall as, no offence, I think we're better placed for next season than you are, but time will tell.

A bit disappointed we couldn’t keep him, after various away games he was regularly seen getting trains to the North West part of the country so IMO this could be part of the reason he’s moved.

Good player, can score some cracking goals. We played him as a wide right forward, good dribbler for a player of his size.

Is very one footed though (left) and can miss chances - like most players down here.

Had a very good season last season, but the season before that he only scored 5 goals and his fitness was a bit of an issue.

Keep him fit and play to his strengths and I see no reason why he won’t do well for you. Personally, I’d have liked him to stay with us.

Cheers lads, a really good balanced write up. Will post these on our board as a view from you guys.

I'm fairly excited, looks like the kind of signing we want to be making the summer, with the obvious few flaws that league 2 players all come with. A couple more like this and us Saddlers will be very pleased, he spoke very highly of our DoF Jamie Fullarton as well as our new Manager Matty Taylor so it seems like those two, combined with the location, made us a better fit right now than you guys. Always had a soft spot for Orient, I see you as the "Walsall of London", so I hope you guys get a good replacement in and have a good season.

No signings for us so far...happy that Chris Stokes has found himself a job in Scotland...I guess like a former scoreboard that kept throwing a wobbly during games...we are "Waiting"!

No idea what he’s like. No doubt we’ll have the Exeter fans on soon saying he’s shite!

Moomin on the OOC thread reckons he's decent enough. Can play RB or CB but from the blurb on the website McGreal wants him at RB.

Judging by twitter he will be sorely missed your end. Seems a top signing and someone we’ll definitely play further forward.

I heard he was going to Blackpool until they got promoted so looks a very good signing.

Not confirmed yet but looks like Lawrence Vigouroux will sign for Lincoln.

By my count we now need to sign around 13 players.

Crawley sign Harry Ransom. 21 yr old centre back released by Millwall. No news on the length of contract.

Has captained their u23s on occasion but was sent on loan to Dover last season and played 8 games...not sure you can count those as Dover had their record expunged.

Lives just down the road from Crawley so a local lad which is always nice (we know where you live!)

Come out of nowhere, that rumour. Not even mentioned this end.

We need a keeper, mind. Most of last season we had a 17-year old as our number two who I suspect we'd loan out this season if we can. We were linked to a young lad from WBA on loan who was at Cheltenham last season so either that isn't happening or Vigouroux is coming in as a sub.

He'd never stood out for me. Had a mare against us when at Swindon two or three seasons ago.

Shame Ethan Ross never worked out with you - he would have become our number one during last season if he'd stayed.

Played every minute of every game for us last season and scooped up most of our awards, including player of the year and players player of the year.

Form dipped at the end of the season, but so did the rest of our whole squad who knew for one reason or another they were off.

He'll be in League One next season, though I expected him to be at Ipswich or Portsmouth.
