The ball is hardly stored away until next season and we have signed our first new faces of the summer. Danny Hollands has been signed on a three year deal. A midfielder who left Bournemouth on Monday, signed for us on Tuesday...would that some others could find work that quickly. A defensive midfielder who scores. It is reported as "this is the first of many new signings". It was quickly followed by the signing of another midfielder, another Bradley...Bradley Pritchard signed on a years contract with an option for a further year.
It gives a warm feeling having signings this early, we're so used to having to wait...you can feel the hope rising already.
Kelly Youga...a player I've always liked, has been given the opportunity to prove his fitness in pre-season. After the devastating injury he received in October 2009, he has been given this opportunity...and if he can get back his "game", then we have a player back we've been sorely missing. I, for one, wish him well.
We were told they'd be changes this summer, but I don't think anyone thought it would be this early....you just hope it is!
