Joint First Team managers Martin Ball & Daryll Thomas have provided an update on what’s been going on behind the scenes so far during the off-season.

Although since completing their season on Saturday 20th April the First team seem to have been very quiet. Behind the scenes that is certainly not the case as the gaffers have all but finalised their squad for the 2024/25 campaign.

Alongside acquiring new players Ball & Thomas have also planned out a stacked pre-season schedule that includes friendlies against the likes of Long Eaton United, Notts County and Shepshed Dynamo to name a few. Find the full fixture list below. Click Here

“Hello Red Badgers,

I hope you are all keeping well!

We have seen a lot of activity recently from the world of non league and we thought it was important to keep everyone up to date with where we are at recruitment wise.

We have been really aggressive and ambitious in the off-season and are absolutely delighted with the lads that have committed to join us next season.

We are very conscious registrations can’t go through until 1st July but trust in the lads we have shaken hands with. We feel the areas we identified at the end of the season have been strengthened and we can’t wait to get back on Saturday 15th June, we’re really excited for next season. We have shaken hands with 2, step 4 captains from last year which will bring us experience and leadership on the field, as well as an ex professional in the heart of our defence. We have also added what we think is the best from local teams who impressed us massively during this season.

Business wise, we’re probably done with new signings unless someone we can’t turn down becomes available that will improve the starting 11 and fits within the budget.

We look forward to seeing you on 2nd July against Dunkirk.

Up the Red Badgers”

DT & Bally ❤️?❤️?
