Page already planning for summer signings

Manager Rob Page says he has “an opportunity from now to the end of the season” to plan for any potential summer signings.

The manager is aware that his budget will largely depend on if the club has new owners or has its playing budget cut under current owner Norman Smurthwaite. Page told the Sentinel: “We don’t really want to leave it as late as last summer. There was a lot of work for myself last summer trying to bring players in with the changes we made. I think there were ten or eleven new faces coming in.

If there is work to be done, it gives us an opportunity from now to the end of the season to address it and put plans in place…

“In the main, I am really pleased with the additions we have brought in, all of them from Jak Alnwick to Ben Purkiss to Sam Foley, Anthony Grant, Sam Kelly, Ajay Leitch-Smith and all the new additions have had an impact on the team in some way.

“If there is work to be done, it gives us an opportunity from now to the end of the season to address it and put plans in place so that, in the summer, half the work is already done and we are not starting from scratch.

“It will be less of a job to do in the summer but again we want to bring quality into the team to improve us. “
