Come on you Reds!
Francis Babalola, Harry Newman, Josh Webb, Joshua Webb, Andy Lomas, George Nicholas, Luke Williams.
I'm surprised about both of the Webbs. I thought both were decent but perhaps we do not know all the details. Luke Williams form tailed off but I thought he was a decent goalkeeper for us. I'm not surprised about Nicholas or Newman but thought Babalola and Lomas both had something to offer. Hopefully they will all be replaced with players just as good or better.
Interesting in the club statement recently about what happened last season being a 'huge wake up call'. Any chance this means a bigger playing budget?
Re: Players Released
In my opinion its is a shame to see Lomas, Webb (the midfielder) and Babalola go. I would have seen a future at Earlsmead for all these three. Newman seemed to tail off drastically toward the end of the season. It looks like we will see a much different midfield next season.
I agree with a previous posting that defensively i was not overly concerned (despite the switching off in concentration at times) but going forward we were really struggling at the end. After Kingstonian away ,where we seemed dangerous everytime we went forward , we seemed toothless.
I'm happy with Steve Baker staying on - it would seem a waste to dispense with the knowledge and experience he has gained this year. and i am hopeful that he/we will be the stronger for last seasons disappointments.
