Are Hednesford the team to look out for? i noticed FCUM finished outside the playoffs
Would be surprised now if Hednesford could repeat last season efforts, reading the non-league paper today, they have lost their best 2 players imo for next season. Cheyenne Dunkley has gone to Kidderminster Harriers and Chris Clements to Mansfield Town. Those 2 players will be big losses, but good to see those 2 progressing up the league's.
Both had been on trial at Championship clubs over the past few months, so it is no big surprise that they have moved on. Clements needed to move on if he wants to make it to the upper levels of the professional game and Mansfield will prove to be a good move for him.
We have so far signed Aaron Rey and Neil Harvey from Marine and Michael Lennon and Dave McPherson from Nantwich. The former three appear to be rated highly, the latter has played for us before, and will be a good replacement for Jay Denny who is moving on.
We have kept hold of the best of our younger players in Darren Campion, Elliott Durrell, Ben Bailey and Jamey Osborne and goalkeeper Dan Crane, alongside re-signing Alex Melbourne from Rushall Olympic.
We still need to sign a few more midfielders and defenders before we know where we are, but Rob Smith seems to be pulling together a decent team.
Play-Offs: Chorley, Fylde, Ilkeston, Hednesford
Relegated: Rushall, Whitby, Stocksbridge & Frickley
