What you have to understand is, we suffered from acutely from very late recruitment for the 2014/15 season. It was a busy summer for all of us last year and unfortunately this meant we were unable to get the players in we wanted. There was no decision to go with one goalkeeper and everybody at the club knows we would be far better off with a larger squad including more than one goalkeeper.

Recruiting players midseason presents us with other problems on the education side and so it really isn't as straightforward as some would like.

We hope that next year will be different. Whilst some people are attracted to 'big name' clubs but there are strong practical reasons why they should consider coming to Whyteleafe. We carry out our education on site - so there's no constant bussing back and forwards between a football club and a college and our pitch facilities are so good other academies regularly use it when their own muddy grass field is unplayable.
