SHOTS MANAGER Andy Scott is reportedly waiting for the thumbs up so as he can offer up to five of his summer trialists, a deal at the club.
With the management team having cast their eyes over a reported 40 players during recent months, the club are urgently looking to build a squad from scratch following the summer of discontent which saw the club enter and now exit, administration.
“There are four or five players who have been with us throughout pre-season that we have spoken to about contracts,” Shots manager Andy Scott told the local media.
“Obviously we have been confined by the fact the club has been in administration, but I’m just waiting now to hear when we will be able to register them so we can start piecing our squad together.
“It’s been very difficult with so many trialists coming in but now we are two or three weeks behind everyone else and we’ve got to start narrowing it down. We are playing catch-up.
“We are only going to have a small squad to work with this year and it presents a good opportunity for some of the youth lads who are training with the first team this year to make the grade and progress.
“The attitude and application of all the players has been fantastic in very trying circumstances and hopefully that can come through as we prepare to go to Grimsby in two weeks' time.”
